Floyd Emery, first elected to the Missouri City Council in 2011 will seek re-election in the November 2017 General Election.
He represents Missouri City District D, which includes Quail Valley, Lake Olympia, Lakeshore Harbour, Creekmont South, Silver Ridge, Newpoint and several other developments in the Quail Valley and Sienna areas. During these six years he has held committee positions on finance and budget, economic development, high performance organization and currently has the distinction to be the mayor pro tem for Missouri City.
In addition, Emery was recently elected to the position of board chairman for the Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC), a 13-county organization that addresses common needs of residents and businesses. He is an active member of the Missouri City Exchange Club, has chaired the Missouri City Police Officers Association Charity Golf Tournament for the past 10 years, is a past president of Quail Valley Proud and, along with his wife Linda, are founding supporters and associates of The Houston First Tee at Quail Valley. He is an avid golfer and he and wife Linda raised their sons Dennis and Brian in Quail Valley where they have been residents since 1976.
Emery points to the many accomplishments and recognitions Missouri City has experienced during his tenure on the city council and is proud to have played a part in those achievements.
One is the recognition of Missouri City as one of the top 10 safest cities in Texas, accomplished through the dedication and work ethic of the public safety employees. Complementing that is a public safety budget supporting these efforts and a city policy designed to attract and retain personnel by providing salary and benefits competitive to their counterparts in the surrounding cities and counties. Emery will continue to champion these policies if re-elected.
Through sound business management of revenues and expenditures Missouri City continues to trend well below the average of local property tax rates when compared to surrounding cities. This is a trend experienced over the last four tax cycles and one that Emery has committed to continue.
