Polls will open in this year’s elections for Jersey Village City Council in just 19 days. There is only one contested election on the ballot this year, but I believe this is a very important election for our city in light of the issues we will face in the next couple of years.

Councilmember Andrew Mitcham will be elected as our next mayor, with no opponent filing to run against him. I am also unopposed in my bid for a second two-year term on the Jersey Village City Council. Councilmember Greg Holden is also on the ballot and is opposed by Merrilee Beazley.

I am enthusiastically endorsing Greg Holden for re-election to a new term so that he can have an opportunity to help us finish what we started in terms of flood mitigation and economic development.

Greg has a tremendous amount of business experience that is invaluable to our city. A business graduate of Texas A&M University, Greg has owned various small businesses in and out of Jersey Village over the past 30 years. Today he is a partner in a company selling industrial equipment. As the city council continues to pursue opportunities to attract new businesses and new development to Jersey Village, that experience will be instrumental in guiding us to agreements that are mutually beneficial to both the city and the businesses seeking to call our city home.

Moreover, during his tenure on city council, Greg has been a key resource as we make greatly needed capital expenditures. Because of his business experience, particularly in purchasing and developing real estate for those businesses, he is able to provide valuable insight on costs of construction and the challenges that can be faced during these projects.

If you value real world business experience, you need Greg Holden to return for another term on our city council.
