Leading the Way Through Effective Leadership, Sharing Information, and Building Relationships
May 10, 2023 KATY - Today, Commissioner Vincent Morales announced that he would be seeking re-election to the Fort Bend County Commissioner’s Court to continue serving the citizens of Precinct 1.
"I am pleased to announce that I will be running for re-election to continue serving the Precinct 1 community. Precinct 1 is growing and thriving in every economic indicator and we are taking a proactive and responsible approach to that growth in the Commissioner’s office. Our focus is on protecting the quality of life for our residents – whether that comes through more roads and drainage improvements, or through lower tax rates and careful budgeting. We are blessed to live in an area with so much opportunity for families and businesses to thrive, and I will continue working hard to protect that opportunity for generations to come.”
Morales represents the newly redistricted Precinct 1, the fastest-growing area in Fort Bend County, with a population nearing a quarter-million residents. Since taking office in the newly expanded boundaries, Commissioner Morales and his team have been dedicated to establishing a personal connection with every neighborhood and community within the precinct. They have made great strides in this effort, recently hosting a town hall of HOA leaders and special district board members where such critical topics as mobility and flood infrastructure were discussed. Morales is proud to lead a team that is focused on serving the community and building strong relationships with all stakeholders and residents.
“Although Democratic redistricting radically changed precinct lines within Fort Bend County, the Precinct 1 office has hit the ground running after the lines changed,” said Morales. “At the state level, we’ve worked with officials to leverage our local dollars into further solutions for our urgent mobility needs. Here locally, I’ve built strong alliances with community leaders, law enforcement, neighborhood associations, and faith-based groups all over the county. Through this network my office provides regular updates both online via social media, and in-person through community events and meetings. These relationships are key to keeping our economic engine going and enhancing the county services that protect our quality of life.”
Commissioner Morales has also used his experience as a business owner and community leader to accelerate and enhance many critical infrastructure projects in the precinct. These include new main lanes and frontage roads for the Grand Parkway (SH 99), partnerships with TxDOT on the FM 723 expansion, new turn lanes and signal improvements at key intersections, and the expansion of public safety facilities for county law enforcement.
“Our community has vital mobility and infrastructure priorities that are sorely needed to keep up with our population growth,” said Morales. “Some of these projects are years overdue and we need them built as soon as possible to keep up. As your commissioner, priority number one is ensuring our infrastructure meets this growing demand and our area remains at the forefront of economic opportunity for families and businesses.”
During his time on the Commissioners Court, Morales has been a staunch advocate for taxpayers with his focus on sound fiscal policies and transparency in public service. He has fought to lower our property taxes and bring accountability to the appraisal system as local growth and housing values have skyrocketed.
“We have so many tasks ahead of us to keep our community strong," said Morales. "As Fort Bend County grows, we must expand our public safety efforts, provide more law enforcement, and create better coordination at every level of government. I’m proud to have the ability to call on so many of our elected leaders as our partners. We will continue to work hard to protect our communities and serve the taxpayers with quality county services. I look forward to serving Fort Bend County again in my next term, and I look forward to building on our current success."
