About Daphne Scarbrough

Daphne is always speaking for those who need a voice in government.

I am a lifelong Houstonian who loves our city and wants to see it continue to grow in a good way.  I started my metal fabricating business, The Brass Maiden, in 1982 and moved it into the district in 1983. I have worked on commercial and residential construction sites for 37 years, thus I am experienced with contracts, the quality of craftsmanship, and first-hand knowledge of construction components.

I have attended thousands of hours of hearings and seminars on transportation, urban planning, architecture, and historic preservation.

I am also a veteran speaker, advocating for businesses, jobs, and fair taxation, at:

  • The House Committee hearings in the State Legislature;
  • The Senate Committee hearings in the State Legislature; advocating for businesses, jobs, and fair taxation
  • The Houston City Council,
  • The Harris County Commissioners Court,
  • The Houston-Galveston Area Council,
  • The Transportation Policy Council,
  • Federal hearings on transportation.
  • Metro
  • Bellaire City Council
  • Many Political and Civic clubs

As a former vice president of Urban Harvest, I am a longtime advocate of organic gardens and green space.

And, yes, I do wear boots every day.
