FBI: Incumbents face keen challenge in Missouri City!

Incumbents face keen challenge in Missouri City

Sugar Land Mayor Jimmy Thompson and two at-large council members Tom Abraham and Jacquie Chaumette have been elected unopposed, but their counterparts in Missouri City are facing a contest in the May city council elections.

Sitting councilmember Cynthia Lenton-Gary has filed to run against incumbent Mayor Allen Owen.

Owen has been Missouri City mayor since 1994 and he was a council member for eight years prior to that.

Cynthia Gary is in the middle of her second two-year term and she won the District B council seat in 2007, defeating the then incumbent Don Smith.

Similarly, Wyatt has been a councilmember from 1981 to 1994 and again an at-large councilmember since 1998.

Wyatt is director of occupational health and safety at the Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Wyatt is opposed by Anthony G. Maroulis...

...The at-large position 2 is an open seat as incumbent Buddy Jimerson is not seeking re-election.

Four candidates Kevin Tunstall, healthcare admininstrator, Danny Nguyen, business owner, Yolanda Ford, planner, and Judith Neil Dupre, insurance executive, have filed for this position.

The election is on May 8. Profiles of other candidates will be published in future weeks.
