Carl White, a lifelong Conroe resident, is seeking Place 2 on the Conroe City Council. White, who served four years in the US Army and retired from Entergy after 35 years, believes that the Conroe City Council needs to be inclusive of all the people who call the city home.
“I believe elected officials must be reachable. As your city councilmen I will leverage the power of people. Growth is never by mere chance; it is a result of people working together. I will reach out to various communities seeking out ways we can work together,” he said. “I will continue to work with those individuals who have shaped Conroe and seek out fresh new perspectives.”
White believes it is important for public servants to be accountable to their constituency.
“It’s important that we have an open window of transparency. The decision we make on public policy effects every household, and it is the job of elected officials to make policy that will benefit all. I will be your full-time councilman working to seek out the best growth opportunities for our city and its citizens,” he said.
“As council members, we must constantly seek out opportunities, working with the community to make decisions that add value to every citizen of Conroe. As a Council Person we must tap into our God given potential working in unity, setting the stage today that will benefit the children and grandchildren of the future,” White continued.
If elected as councilman, White is promising he will:
- Work to develop a Neighborhood Awareness Program to address individual community needs.
- Work to maximize our collective strengths to drive neighborhood redevelopment and city growth.
- Work to increase Small Business Development through exposure to capital resources and “best practices.”
- Work as we continue to showcase the great features of Conroe to the world through increased arts and tourism.
- Work to grow our networks of “social capital” to improve services for citizens.
- Work to advocate for single member districts.
