Senator Tim Scott, South Carolina's first black elected senator will also be featured. Senator Scott also happens to be the first black senator elected in the Southern Region of the United States since Reconstruction.
Does the name Will Hurd ring a bell? Well, Congressman Elect Will Hurd is a former CIA Officer who recently defeated a powerful Democratic Congressman by the name of Pete Gallegos to become the first black Republican from Texas to ever win a United States Congressional seat. Congressman Elect Hurd will represent the 23rd Congressional District of Texas.
On behalf of Aubrey R. Taylor Communications I would like to congratulate Congresswoman Elect Mia Love, Congressman Elect Will Hurd, and Senator Tim Scott on being named our "HISTORY MAKERS" for 2014.
Another one of our "HISTORY MAKERS" to be featured is Mayor Allen Owen, mayor of Missouri City, Texas. Mayor Allen Owen is one of the longest serving mayors in the state of Texas. Mayor Owens has faithfully served as Missouri City’s mayor since 1994. Mayor Owen has a long-standing documented track record of placing the citizens of Missouri City first. His track record and dedication was part of the reason Missouri City was recently honored as one of the top 10 safest cities in Texas by real estate website Movoto back in August of 2014. Movoto combined crime data from the top 100 most populous municipalities in Texas, and used the FBI’s 2012 Uniform Crime Report to determine that Missouri City is the sixth safest city in Texas. 24/7 Wall St., a web-based corporation designed to report financial news and opinions, also recently ranked Missouri City 16th on their list of the top 50 places to live in the United States. Using data to rank municipalities based on factors such as employment, economy and infrastructure, 24/7 Wall St. celebrated Missouri City’s low crime rate, proximity to Houston and affordability. Missouri City was the only city in the Houston area to make the list; other Texas cities on the list include Richardson (#17) and Flower Mound (#9). The news organization’s profile of the “Show Me City” also reflected the following details: Median household income: $84,511; Median home value: $163,000; Average commuter travel time: 29.5 minutes. Missouri City is also one of the most diverse cities in America.
