HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Former Harris County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia plans to run for the state senate seat once held by the late Mario Gallegos.

In addition to being a county commissioner, Garcia has also served as a social worker, attorney and Houston city controller.

Gallegos died in October but still was re-elected on Tuesday.

Texas Governor Rick Perry is expected to call for a special election to fill the District 6 senate seat in December.
