In May 2011, I was elected to this position by a substantial majority of District D voters. I was re-elected in May 2013 without opposition. I appreciate your support and confidence.
In the election of 2011, I ran on a platform of "Ensuring Public Safety", "Protecting Property Values" and "Attracting New Business". I'm proud of the awards, recognition and business success Missouri City has experienced during my tenure. Our City being recognized as one of the safest cities in the US, most diverse city in the Houston area, best place to live and most affordable for homebuyers gives me satisfaction, knowing I have worked hard to keep those campaign pledges. The completion of the City Centre at Quail Valley, Recreation and Tennis Center at Cypress Point and the $50 million Water Treatment Plant at Steep Bank exemplifies our success. Missouri City has worked hard to develop and foster a business-friendly environment. As a result, our commercial tax base reflects a substantial increase as a percent of City revenue and our retail sales tax revenue reflects steady growth. I'm pleased to state that Missouri City is viewed by many as the best place to live, work, shop and play.
With the experience I have gained, I am positioned to continue the work with my colleagues on City Council and our City Staff to move Missouri City forward. We must maintain our current path of growth and look for new opportunities to build our business base. Funding of our Public Safety sectors and addressing our infrastructure and water needs while continuing to improve our alliances with our HOAs must be our priorities as we build an environment that meets the expectations of our residents.
Thank you to the residents of District D and Missouri City. I will continue my hard work for Missouri City's future.
