Mayor Allen Owen Announces Re-Election Bid
Missouri City Mayor Prepares for May 7 Election
Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen has announced he is filing for re-election.
The 22-year incumbent has announced his candidacy for the May election before any of his potential opponents have done so.
Owen and his wife of 48 years Jane have made Missouri City home for nearly 40 years. Both are passionately proud of the city they love.
“I’ve dedicated my life as a committed husband, father, business leader/builder and civic volunteer to make Missouri City the best city imaginable.”
After retiring from banking, Owen became increasingly involved in improving the quality of life in the city.
“In recent years, we’ve worked hard with our City Council, its economic development team and local business community to attract over $500,000,000 in new business, leading to hundreds of new jobs and to Missouri City being voted as one of two Texas cities of the top 50 cities in the USA to live in.”
“I’m particularly proud of our continuing push by City Council to improve public safety. We recently opened Fire Station Number 5, are working to build Fire Station 6 and approved pay raises for Police and Fire Forces and all city workers.
We’ve hired five new Motorcycle Police Officers. In spite of struggling economic conditions in other areas, “Missouri City home values have jumped 14 percent and remain one of the best buys in the area, because of our proximity to Houston, the Texas Medical Center, Energy Corridor and the Port of Houston.”
