The Mayor Council Association provides an opportunity for Fort Bend County elected officials to talk about things that are common to all. Quite often opportunities are shared as well as solutions.
This is unique across Texas, indeed, across the United States – another reason Fort Bend is so strong. Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen says the Mayor and Council Association has helped everyone understand “how important it is that we work together. We will be much more powerful as a group when we need to get things done at the state and federal levels”.
After Mayor Owen opened the meeting, he turned it over to Meadows Place Mayor Charles Jessup for the invocation and introduction of the guest speakers for the night.
Attending Association members were treated to some fantastic BBQ prepared by Larry Martin of Majors BBQ of Meadows Place and two great presentations. The first, by Barbara Keller-Willy stressed the importance of Fort Bend County in the annual Monarch migration. Meadows Place and several other cities are working with Monarch Gateway to provide host and food sites along the route. Very impressive and well received presentation. Also well received was the presentation by Mike Lucido of the Aldi corporation as he informed officials all about Aldi, their philosophy, why they are being welcomed into cities across the world and Fort Bend County, including Meadows Place, which will be the recipient of the first “larger, new look” Aldi store in the area.
