Scarcella seeks re-election as Stafford mayor
Leonard Scarcella has announced his candidacy for re-election as mayor of the City of Stafford this May.
“As one of the longest continuously serving mayors in the nation, I’ve led this city on a storied journey of incredible achievements, of which most others cities would dare not dream. Noteworthy in my many decades of long accomplishments has been the involvement of citizens of all races and cultures in the truly American pursuit of working, playing, learning and worshipping together to form a better city,” he said.
“So what’s on the horizon? At its last meeting of 2018, city council approved the building of a new two-story police annex and a new fire station/ administration complex, both of which should be completed this year. Supplement that with the much celebrated Grid, a mixed use, multi-purpose revitalization complex being erected on the former Texas Instruments property. The developer has advertised it—which induced the city to commit $18 million to the endeavor—as a project that will transform Stafford and make the city into a point of destination. It will be difficult to achieve those lofty goals, but we all very much look forward to the improvements and enhancements it will bring.
Then there is the Revitalization of the FM1092 Corridor project moving forward in conjunction with TxDoT which will materially elevate the appearance, mobility and commercialization of this span of highway modeled after Westheimer in Houston,” he said.
