Past accomplishments while serving on previous College Station Councils:


*We oversaw the renaissance of the Northgate District where money for repairs, economic development, and providing the safety net of a city-owned parking garage reaped the benefit of tens of millions of dollars in private investment as can be plainly seen when visiting College Station’s Downtown Northgate.

*We formed a partnership with the city of Bryan and created the Bio-Corridor where over the past decade we have seen millions of dollars in investments related to bio-medical research and development, providing high paying jobs suitable for our educated workforce.

*We created the Medical Corridor in the Rock Prairie Road region, and were successful in bringing Scott & White hospital into that corridor, as well as medical offices and service providers.

*We bought the land that is now known as Midtown College Station, home to the future Independence Park, homes, offices, and businesses, the most recent addition being the forthcoming COSCO store.

*We brought in Home Depot, Lowes, the Bed Bath and Beyond shopping center, the HEB at Holleman and Texas Ave, restaurants on University Drive and dozens of small businesses.

*We created the Twin Oaks Landfill that serves a seven-county area for the next fifty years and today College Station/Bryan residents pay about half of what out-of-towners pay for sanitation services.


*We guided the maturation process of the Wolf Pen Creek District, where a drainage solution was melded with hike and bike trails, amphitheater, Festival area, Community meeting building, apartments, offices, retail shops, and ice-skating rink.

*We accelerated the completion of Veteran’s Park.

*We banned smoking in restaurants, bars, bowling alleys and other public facilities.

*We televised council meetings for the first time, making city government more accessible and open.

*We oversaw the creation of neighborhood associations under a city coordinator, thus increasing our dialogue with the diverse neighborhoods in our community.

*We funded a greenways program and greenways coordinator, improved recycling, improved bicycle lanes, added parks, built gateways and public art, supported concerts at Wolf Pen Creek Park.

*We created a pay policy that competitively compensates our city employees.
