We support Township candidates who have a history of community service and are committed to fact-based, not political decision making. Unlike other PACs in the area, we do not accept donations from candidates we vet. After a vigorous vetting process, we endorsed: Position 2, Jimmie Dotson, Position 3, John Anthony Brown, and Position 4, The Rev. Dan Hannon.
Please join the four Township Candidates and The Voter Awareness Council at the Black Walnut Cafe for an informal opportunity to meet the candidates on the November 7, 2017 ballot. This is an opportunity to thank John McMullan (Position 5), Ann Snyder (Position 6), Laura Fillault (Position 7) and Carol Stromatt (Position 7) for offering to serve our community and to chat informally about the next two years.
This event will be held on Wednesday, September 27th from 4:30-5:45 (prior to The Woodlands Township Board meeting). Thanks to the Black Walnut for their donation of some light bites, water and tea. Cash bar is available. Please bring a friend or colleague along with you and forward this email to those in your circles! This event is open to the public.
We support local artists and arts organizations and advocate for our common needs and interests. The Woodlands Township’s consideration of a Cultural Arts Center is an example of a project that we wholly support to provide a needed physical hub for arts in our community. A Cultural Arts Center has always been a part of the master plan for our community and according to the latest two surveys, the residents support it. The Cultural Arts Center currently under consideration would contain mid-size and small performance and rehearsal spaces as well as potentially a non-profit gallery, exhibition and teaching spaces, digital media arts spaces and programs and a healing arts space. It would not compete with the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, which accommodates large performances.
Hosted by The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce, four candidates for the Position 2 seat and two candidates for the Position 4 seat met at the chamber offices to do the meet and greet via Facebook Live.
Local residents and voters in The Woodlands will be able to ‘meet and greet’ six candidate for four seats on the township Board of Directors at a voter awareness booth Saturday at The Woodlands Farmers Market.
“I’m surprised to see the current board is moving so fast to have this incorporation vote, and I haven’t had anyone identify what problem we’re solving or what risk factor we’re identifying,” former Township Chair Bruce Tough said. “There’s a push for some reason and no benefit to be gained.”
Houston annexation was always the driving force behind efforts by many local residents to incorporate The Woodlands as a city in order to prevent annexation either by Houston or Conroe. With the primary reason for incorporation legally removed, The Golden Hammer asked some community leaders whether the passage of House Bill 347 now negates the need for incorporation or not.
