It has been my distinct honor to serve the residents of Fort Bend County as a County Commissioner since January 1, 1997. I’m committed to ensuring that taxpayers’ money is spent as prudently and as efficiently as possible. Fort Bend County provides a great bargain for its residents. For an average of about $50 per month per home the county funds the entire Justice System, including all of the Courts, the District Attorney’s Office, Constables, Sheriff, and Jail. The county also funds a county-wide Road System, Library System, Drainage District, and Emergency Medical Services. I led the effort to reduce the county tax rate from the region’s highest of 66¢ to the region’s lowest of 44¢, saving county taxpayers over $1 billion.  Some personal information about me:
