Frank Jackson, a native Texan, grew up in Conroe. Jackson is a successful music industry executive, and says when the state of Texas proclaimed Conroe a “Music friendly community”, he lead the effort. Jackson says his authentic understanding of hard work, which goes into pursuing and attaining dreams, has helped build the Texas music scene we know and love today.
Awarded the 2019 committed to Conroe Award by the Conroe convention and visitors bureau, Jackson says he has a passion to serve, work hard, and has a voice for Conroe. As the chairman of the CMAC Conroe Music Advisory Council, Jackson said he lead the effort to consolidate the event packet application process, making it easier and more cost effective to bring events to Conroe, as well as pushed to create an annual “Annual Outdoor amplification” Permit, allowing for more outdoor venues to open in Conroe.
“CONROE will soon reach 100,000 citizens. It’s time for fresh ideas and vision to grow the city, honor the historic nature and embrace the challenges of growth ahead of us,” said Jackson. “There are over 15 million people within 3 ½ hour drive to Conroe. Conroe is the cross roads from Beaumont to Austin and Houston to Dallas, and that’s why we have a great opportunity to grow our tourism, improve the quality of life for the citizens and have more revenue to promote Visit Conroe.”
Frank Jackson said he wants Conroe to be a “Business Friendly Community” as well.
“My wife Bel and I have been working to develop Conroe’s first food truck park The Table at Madeley, located at 316 Madeley Street in Downtown,” said Jackson. “Through this process I discovered it was very difficult to start a business in Conroe, and would like to create a comprehensive application process online to free up permit and engineering departments, and make it easier for small businesses to start and operate in the city of Conroe. I want to update to cloud based software and information systems in the city to function more real time operations for inspections, permits, engineering and public works.”
Jackson said he is especially proud to have received several endorsements. He said the Conroe Firefighters, the Conroe Police Officers and the Republican Voters of Texas have all publicly endorsed him.
“In order to choose who they honor with their endorsement, these organizations either interview or send a detailed questionnaire to each candidate. I think if the firemen, the police officers and the Republican voter group support me, you can feel good about supporting me too,” said Jackson. Make sure when you vote this year you not only vote for President but vote all the way down the ballot, and for City Council Position 5 and Frank Jackson. Quite “Frankly” I am committed to Conroe!”
