Councilmember Boney seeks to build on the foundation of a successful second-term on Missouri City Council with robust plans to move Missouri City forward
Missouri City Councilmember Jeffrey L. Boney has officially announced his candidacy for re-election after a successful second term as a member of the Missouri City Council representing District B.
Councilmember Boney recently held a reelection campaign launch event at the Landmark Community Center in Missouri City, where he touted his accomplishments over the nearly two years of his second term. Boney also reemphasized his focus on putting “Missouri City First!” and sticking to his campaign vision to build safer communities, fuel business and economic growth and increase community engagement amongst the residents.
“Over the past two years during only my second term, I have worked extremely hard to bring resources to District B and have appointed people to committees to make sure District B had a seat at the table,” said Boney. “Every term, I compile a list of what has been done to celebrate my efforts and to also hold myself accountable. I take this seriously as I recognize this seat belongs to the people, and not me. I hope to continue that work to move the district forward.”
As a second-term councilmember, Boney has done quite a bit over the course of his second term, such as directing over $11 million in resources to the Texas Parkway/Cartwright corridor through either advocacy, direct intervention, and/or casting a vote in favor. He has also worked collaboratively with his fellow colleagues on Council and the Missouri City staff to greenlight a myriad of other projects and initiatives that have improved the quality of life for the residents of District B and Missouri City as a whole.
