TOP TEN MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY: FIVE PEOPLE WHO COME CLOSE TO THE TOP TEN.
For the purpose of this discussion, I generally define “power” as the ability to get things done in our community. So if someone has specific business or political goals and can get them done for himself or herself or for others, then they have power.
Although the following people are not in the Top Ten Most Powerful People in Montgomery County List, they are very close, and they definitely can achieve specific business or political goals for themselves or others. I list them in alphabetical order:
Gordy Bunch, Woodlands Township Chairman and TWFG Chief Executive. A “rising star,” “Mayor of The Woodlands,” and highly successful insurance executive. (I don’t call him “the People’s Chairman” because that’s a bit too Mao-ish for my taste.)
Brandon Creighton, State Senator, District 4. Real estate force locally, highly respected legislator statewide.
Marc Davenport, Political and Marketing Consultant. Enormous influence over inner-workings of our county government.
Rowdy Hayden, Constable, Precinct 4. Law enforcement superstar as well as a decent and caring individual.
Walter Wilkerson, M.D., Montgomery County Republican Party Chairman. Local GOP leader since 1964. Community and medical leader his entire adult life. Sets a great example of how to be a Republican with dignity, compassion, and kindness.
