Pinnock Outlines Positions For Council Run In This FBN Piece

From FBN:

“It is far time for our city council to take a proactive interest in the quality of life of Missouri City residents because it is our local government that has a ‘direct’ impact on the quality of life that we are able to live,” said Pinnock. “It affects not only what we can do but also how we can do it. So much has been neglected in our city over the years, ranging from fleeting businesses, medical facilities, crumbling sidewalks, poor schools to increased taxes, crime, and home foreclosures.”

Pinnock, 34-years-old, is a resident of Quail Valley, along with his wife, Tiffany Pinnock, and his 10-year-old son, Noel Pinnock II. He has a master’s degree in public administration, with a focus on city planning and urban development, and is the e-TRAIN director, professional development services, at the Houston independent School District Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center.

“I have attended many meetings throughout Missouri City and have had the fortunate opportunity to hear from citizens that have a since of uncertainty regarding our city’s future and its inability to compete among neighboring cities,” said Pinnock. “Many of these voices are dissatisfied with how our ‘elected’ city officials respond to concerns that residents bring before council. Some who possessed the courage to go before the council left with negative perceptions and a lost sense of hope. Our city employees are also feeling the pain, especially when one incumbent on the dais diagnosed them with having an ‘entitlement mentality,’ regarding their much-needed salary increases. Their morale is down and that is not fair to them or the residents that rely on them to provide city services.”
