Living, running a successful business, serving his community and raising a family in Fort Bend County for the past 25 years has made Vincent Morales, County Commissioner, Precinct 1, committed to his home and ensuring that it thrives for many years to come. “I have committed myself to the continued growth, prosperity and citizens of Fort Bend County, ensuring future generations will want to call Fort Bend County home,” said Morales. And how does Commissioner Morales plan to continue his commitment? By doing what he has done for over eight years as a public servant: putting people over politics.
“I have always been active in our community as a local business owner,” said Morales. “Both my wife Regina and I have been engaged in economic development and philanthropic activities for years.”
That community leadership led to Morales to his first stint in public service as Mayor of Rosenberg. Elected in 2011, as mayor Morales accomplished securing long-term, cost-efficient potable water for the city of Rosenberg through his work with the Brazosport Water Authority, and he was part of the team that secured a Texas State Technical College campus in Rosenberg. His track record includes several major milestones in economic development, including several companies relocating or expanding their headquarters in Rosenberg, the installation of two new business parks and several new retail developments were created with 489 certificates of occupancy issued since 2011.
“Business expansion and relocation means more jobs,” said Morales. “Building a local economy with less unemployment than the rest of our state enhances our community and our quality of life. It’s not just luck that so many people want to live in our community. As commissioner, I have been able to continue with projects that secure our future with vast economic opportunities and a reliable infrastructure.”
