Available, Reliable, Accountable, Decisive, Empathetic, Honest, Grit

These are characteristics and traits of a worthy and effective, elected leader.With strong community encouragement, I am announcing my bid to serve you as Precinct 4 Commissioner.

I am an 8th generation Texan and  a proud lifelong resident of East Montgomery County.  I graduated from New Caney High School and then went on to receive my business degree from Sam Houston State University.  Afterwards, I began (& enjoyed) a very challenging and successful career in Oil & Gas. I started out as an entry level roustabout on drilling rigs and worked my way up to leadership where I planned global projects and managed day-to-day operations.

My experience includes working at many technical capacities, managing complex finances, budgets & contracts, successfully designing and delivering time-critical projects around the globe and enjoying every challenge, hardship and success that came with it.  I never stopped looking ahead. During this time, I earned my Project Management Professional (PMP) accreditation and began Graduate studies in Construction Science.  I currently work as Facilities Maintenance Construction Project Manager with a large school district and serve on the bond advisory committee, where I work with public funding and procurement to oversee large district projects.

I am a family man with unwavering dedication to my loving wife Amanda and our four extraordinary children, Kenadee, Bowen, Harper and Case.  We live in Porter and my free time is spent coaching little league baseball, spending time with family, enjoying time in the woods or on a jog.

I want to earn your trust and your vote to address the challenges in our community.

With your support, I will serve as your commissioner by prudently maintaining the budget, working with teams to manage the growth that we are experiencing, properly maintaining the roads, improving drainage, fighting to lower taxes, applying common sense and bringing an end to wasteful spending!

County Court at Law #3 candidate Laura Watson.

Laura values integrity and fairness – and those principles have guided her through years of law practice in places like Montgomery and surrounding counties.

Laura, her husband Dennis, son Colton and daughter Reagan live in Willis. The Watsons believe Montgomery County is the best place in Texas to raise a family. And it is that love-of-home that has Laura feeling called to serve her community on the County Court at Law No. 3.
