“After prayerful and careful consideration, I have decided not to run for the state legislative seat for House District 26,” said Tom Abraham, who is currently active as the At Large, Position 1 city council member for the City of Sugar Land and principal as a Regional Director of the Texas Municipal League holding its annual conference in this area this month.
“This was a difficult decision, as I know that my supporters eagerly encouraged me to run and endorsed me for the position,” he said. “I want to especially emphasize that it is vitally important that the community focus on the conservative beliefs and values that unite us and let no agenda narrow our vision or drive us apart.”
Abraham, who has successfully won his consecutive seat on city council and has also served as the city’s Mayor Pro Tem said, “”I want to thank my supporters and those endorsing me. After my continuous years serving as an elected official since 2004, I have found that there are many opportunities to look at things from a different perspective, and it was with that in mind that I made my bid to run for office at the state level.”
Abraham, a small business owner, will be focusing on both his role as a city council member and the private sector, especially during the current economic climate. He and his wife Sarah wish to thank the many area residents, who have continuously offered their support in the name of community.
