Mayor Tom Reid is Committed to Growing the Economy While Keeping Taxes Low in Pearland, Texas

Economic Growth While Keeping Taxes Low for All Pearland, Texas Residents is Very Important to Mayor Tom Reid

MAYOR TOM REID: "We must grow our economy by keeping our taxes as low as we can afford and still provide quality City Services and continue to make Pearland a unique city that will attract corporations and businesses to develop a strong economic development tax base."

Mayor Tom Reid is the Candidate of Choice for Many Distinguished Leaders throughout the City of Pearland, Texas

DISTINGUISHED PEARLAND CITY LEADERS: Tony Carbone (Councilmember for Position 1), Derrick Reed (Councilmember for Position 2), Gary Moore (Mayor Pro Tem/Councilmember for Position 3), Tom Reid (Mayor), Keith Ordeneaux (Councilmember for Position 4), Greg Hill (Councilmember for Position 5), Trent Perez Councilmember for Position 6).



Born in Houston, Mayor Reid acquired his conservative philosophy growing up in the farming and ranching country of Central Texas. He moved with his family to Pearland in 1965 and both his son and daughter graduated from Pearland schools. Mayor Reid became active in Pearland and served as Scout Troop Committee Chairman, City Planning Commissioner, City Councilman, Chairman of the Pearland Library Board, Chairman of Brazoria Drainage District #4, and as Mayor.

His professional career includes scientific writing, underwater defense research for the Navy Department, and as a Junior Design Engineer with WKM Valve Manufacturing Company. He was hired by Rockwell International and worked at Johnson Space Center from 1965 to 1997. He supervised and managed complex projects with sizeable staffs and tight budgets on Gemini, Apollo, Apollo-Soyuz, Skylab, and Space Shuttle Programs, and spent the last 10 years at JSC in the Space Shuttle Program Office.

Mayor Reid is highly visible in community activities. He is a Board Member of Pearland Arts League, PISD District Education Improvement Committee, and Adult Reading Center. He is a member of the Gideon Society, Chamber of Commerce, C. F. Spencer Lodge, and many other community organizations. He is an Eagle Scout, Ordained Elder in the First Presbyterian Church, and is a 32 Degree Mason and a Shriner.

He has a history of regional participation and currently represents Pearland as a Board Member and Past President of the Houston-Galveston Area Council and the Texas Association of Regional Councils, and is Secretary of the H-GAC Transportation Policy Council. He is on the Executive Board of Bay Area Transportation Partnership and is a Vice President of the Economic Alliance of the Houston Port Region. He is also Chairman of the Pearland Development Authority, and the Pearland Area Citizens Corps.

Mayor Reid believes that regional partnerships on transportation, surface water, and air quality are essential to economic growth and quality of life for both Pearland and the Houston Gulf Coast area. He is working with local, regional, and state organizations and officials to make Pearland a quality city that will make us all proud to say we live in Pearland.

Traffic and Roadway Projects

We should all be proud that Pearland is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation – but growth brings challenges. We must strengthen our city for the future by continuing multiple transportation solutions for Pearland commuters such as Park and Ride, light rail, and support the toll lanes for SH-288. We must also complete our city roadway and street construction plans to provide mobility and other major capital improvements for our citizens.

Public Safety and City Services

We must continue Pearland’s recognized quality of life by managing our growth and continue to provide quality Police, Fire, EMS, and City Services. We must maintain our small town atmosphere, and brand Pearland as a Destination City with museums, cultural amenities and shopping and dining opportunities expected of the Gulf Coast’s 3rd largest city by population.

Quality of Life and Growth

Rapid growth is not the same as quality growth.I feel we are fortunate to have a dedicated Council and professional staff that have worked in partnership with other community organizations to make Pearland a special place to live, work, and play. I promise to continue to provide proven leadership and experience in city government and will work to continue the progress that has been made.
