Tish Humphrey, Huntsville ...

itemonline.com [cached]

Tish Humphrey, Huntsville City Council incumbent for Ward 2, is up for re-election Nov.5 against Sam Houston State University senior Kendall Scudder, a full-time leasing agent at The Abors, a student apartment complex.

...
Humphrey has been council's representative for Ward 2 over the last two years.  Humphrey and Scudder agree that students should get involved in local government and that they deserve a voice in decisions City Council makes.
...
Humphrey said she's been active in working for her ward and has much more to do. "When you're passionate about something and you put your heart into something, and you don't think you're through, you've got to keep going," Humphrey said. Humphrey said she knows the city well after having grown up visiting the Huntsville area, attending SHSU and living for more than 20 years here with her family. In addition to owning a small business - Curves, a women's fitness center - Humphrey worked for the city 20 years before retiring as its IT director. This has made her well suited to the task of serving on council, she said. The needs of SHSU students are on her mind, she said, which is why she has been monitoring the budgeted construction of sidewalks on Lake Road, a high traffic area for pedestrians between a concentration of student housing and the SHSU campus. Humphrey said she's been assured the design phase on those sidewalks is complete. "I believe over the last two years that I've been on council, we've made strides," she said.
...
Humphrey said students should register to vote in Walker County while they're attending SHSU because the issues that affect the city affect them, too, as members of the community. She said students would benefit from her experience not just as a lifelong Bearkat but also as a former city employee, a business owner and a council member with experience handling the serious issues associated with administering a $58 million budget. 
...
City Council approved a balanced budget with no tax increase this year, Humphrey said.
...
Humphrey, on the other hand, said that although she was embarrassed when she began her term two years ago that council had to pass an unbalanced budget, she was proud that, in the following months, the city was able to balance the budget. "It's hard when you're on a committee of nine people trying to represent 37,000 people, trying to make everybody happy - which you can't," Humphrey said.
...
Humphrey and Scudder also differ in their view on the transparency the city government exhibits.
...
While Humphrey believes the city government is open with its citizens, Scudder said there is much more the city could be doing to give access to the public.
...
"Communication is that involvement," Humphrey said.
...
Humphrey said she's interested in helping all her constituents - including students. "I believe I'm making a difference and I want to keep doing it," Humphrey said.

Curves Huntsville owner Tish ...

Curves Huntsville owner Tish Humphrey said 25 percent of 3 Spoons sales were donated to Curves if a customer mentioned the gym's name between noon and 2 p.m. on Friday.

In those two hours, approximately 35 to 40 people mentioned Curves, which received $35 of $140 from 3 Spoons.
"When you think about it, that's pretty good," Humphrey said. "That's a lot of people."
The total amount of funds raised by the event is yet to be calculated, but Humphrey said she would like to see more businesses get involved with Curves in the future with the charity event.
The owner said she chose St. Jude's because she always hears positive feedback about the children's charity and also because the national fundraiser "Workout for St. Jude's" also promotes a healthy lifestyle.
...
Humphrey said she's noticed over the years that because the fundraiser focuses specifically on the community, that donation amounts were not above and beyond.
"We do it and we have fun, but we don't raise thousands of dollars," she said. "One day we had a donation of maybe $400, and I was like, well it's not a whole lot."
But a St. Jude's representative shared that even a little bit adds up.
"She was like are you kidding me? That is wonderful," Humphrey laughed.
...
"With the economy everybody is giving now," Humphrey said. "Every agency is telling the same thing, and when we get the opportunity to give to a good cause and even if it is just a little bit everybody is appreciative."
Curves Huntsville has also been involved in other types of charity work, including a food drive that benefited the SAAFE House, the Good Shepherd Mission, the Pregnancy Care Center, and the Rita B. Huff Animal Shelter.
Humphrey said in the past Curves donated whatever the animal shelter needed, such as towel to help dry off the dogs and are currently planning an upcoming fundraiser called "Loved Your Pet".
Every year the gym also collects boxes of Kleenex and zip-lock bags for "Back to School."
Eleven years ago, Humphrey said she was turning 40-years-old and was overweight.
So she decided to join Curves.
"I fell in love with the concept," she said. "It came up for sale a couple of months later and I thought you know what I could do this."
On August 1, 2000 she took over.
Now the owner, who has still kept off the 30 lbs she lost, says she loves and lives Curves.
She also said the gym has wonderful members and that it's important for people to know about the women's involvement in good causes and the community.
"One of the mission statements for Curves is strengthening women and I love the idea that we're working with St. Jude's Children's Hospital because the more women we strengthen, the more they will be around to raise our kids," she said.

Ward 2 council member Tish Humphrey expressed concern of investing so much money in a building constructed in the late 1930s, especially without knowing the cost of future repairs.  

"I'm just really concerned with the age of the building and the uncertainty of everything that's going to have to be done on it," Humphrey said.
