Houston City Council. While an undergraduate at the University of
Texas, she served as one of the first female Assistant Sergeant-at-
f Arms in the Texas House of Representatives. Bass worked with a

Janet Fisher kicked off her campaign for the District 80 seat formerly held by Lance Lalor at a New Year's Day fundraiser. As a
long-time member of the Harris County Women's Political Caucus
and activist in Democratic politics, Fisher says, "I want to be in a
position, not only to encourage good political activity, but I want
to be on the level where my vote can be felt and acted upon. "Fisher,
now a teacher of remedial reading with HISD, worked on the news
desk of Time magazine, and was on the staff of Adlai Stevenson's
campaign for president (in 1956). She has been foreign editor and
translator for Current Digest of the Soviet Press. In New York she ran against an entrenched Republican incumbent for a position on the school board and nearly made it.
She lost by 82 votes out of several thousand.
Mary Phillips, president of Phillips International Company, her
own commercial real estate firm, has had good response already to
her latest project, the National Association of Women in Commercial Real Estate. The new association will educate, encourage and
promote women in the field of commercial real estate.
Six years ago, Phillips had to educate and encourage herself into
this lucrative field. Her persistence with Shindler & Cummins paid
off—the firm allowed her to start making "cold calls" on prospective cilents. It was a tough, rejection-prone job that the men hated
doing. Phillips persisted until the clients started asking for her to show them the property. "All I wanted was the opportunity," she recalls. "I want to work with people who
have the power and money to make decisions." And now she wants to encourage other
women as well. For information on the National Association of Women in Commercial
Real Estate, contact Mary Phillips at 850-9300.
