Gary's Message:

I actively serve the entire City of Pearland as the voice of the people. Just like most in our City, I want to maintain the great hometown feel of this City we call home, while managing the growth. 
I am passionate about meeting and listening to the citizens of our City.When they have issues, I work to address them in a timely manner. Not always is it possible to fix issues right away, but I work towards fixing them within budgetary limitations and time constraints. I understand how our city charter was designed and make sure to communicate to our citizens how and who can help them with concerns.

As a representative of the City, I am active in working with several state and local organizations to ensure Pearland has a voice, including the Texas Municipal League (TML), the Texas Department of Transportation, (TXDOT), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the Houston Galveston Area Council (HGAC), and I attend both Pearland Days and Brazoria County Days in Austin to work with our state representatives on issues and concerns for our City and our county.
