BULLETIN: Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen soundly defeated His Challenger Noel Pinnock in the Saturday, May 10th race for Missouri City Mayor


Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen soundly defeated His Challenger Noel Pinnock in the Saturday, May 10, 2014 race for mayor of Missouri City in Fort Bend County

BULLETIN: Missouri City Texas Mayor Allen Owen faced off against Noel Pinnock in the race for Missouri City Mayor on Saturday, May 10, 2014. But once again, it would be Owen who would emerge as the victor as he mustered 69.70% of the vote. Pinnock finished the night with 30.30% of the vote.

Mayor Owen has made his home in Missouri City for nearly 40 years, and is passionately proud of his city. “I love this city. I have dedicated my life as a committed husband, father, business leader and civic volunteer to making Missouri City the best city imaginable.”

After recently retiring from the banking industry, he has become increasingly involved in improving the quality of life in Missouri City. “For the last 2 years, we have worked hard with our City Council, the economic development team and the local business community to attract over $500,000,000 in new business, leading to hundreds of new jobs.”

According to Forbes Magazine, Missouri City continues to be one of the safest, most affordable, and best places to live in the country. And according to a recent Rice University study, Missouri City was named “…the most ethnically diverse city in the region.”

“I am particularly pleased by the continuing emphasis by our City Council on improving our public safety. We recently opened our first Mini-Police Station, and started construction of Fire Station Number 5. We approved pay increases for our Police and Fire Forces, and hired 5 new Motorcycle Police Officers.” And in spite of struggling economic conditions in other areas, “Missouri City home values have continued to rise but still remain one of the best buys in the region, because of its proximity to Houston and the Texas Medical Center.”

Mayor Owen serves on numerous boards, committees and volunteer organizations, all focused on making Missouri City and the surrounding area a great place to live, work, open a business and raise a family.

Owen and his wife of 45 years are members of First United Methodist Church. Mayor Owen graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University, and Southern Methodist University – Graduate School of Finance and Banking.
