Dexter L. McCoy

Commissioner Dexter L. McCoy is a proud product of Fort Bend County, serving Precinct 4 residents on Commissioners Court since January 2023. The son of a teenage mother and a biological father who was incarcerated for much of his childhood, Commissioner McCoy was raised by his parents in Mission Bend. From an early age he learned the value of hard work and was motivated by service.

Commissioner McCoy began his public service career as an appointee in the Obama Administration, where he focused on college access issues and implementing the administration's agenda addressing harassment in our nation's schools.

Following his time in Washington, D.C., Commissioner McCoy returned home committed to bringing his experiences back to better serve the people of Fort Bend County. Commissioner McCoy was a district leader in Fort Bend ISD, where he delivered students and families the tools they needed to build stronger, more connected communities. He also served as a board member on the Gulf Coast Workforce Development Board, overseeing a budget of nearly $400 million in regional workforce development funds to uplift and empower the regional workforce.

Subsequently, as Chief of Staff to the Fort Bend County Judge, Commissioner McCoy successfully fought for a non-profit grant program and created an $11 million public-private partnership to expand internet access and address other key priorities.

A product of Fort Bend County public schools, Commissioner McCoy earned his Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from Boston University, where he served as Student Body President, expanded student services and successfully assisted the University in its first comprehensive $1 billion capital campaign to increase financial aid and academic resources.

Commissioner McCoy and his wife Chelsea live in Richmond with their daughters Piper and Porter, along with Fitz the Goldendoodle.
