Born in Houston, Mayor Reid acquired his conservative philosophy growing up in the farming and ranching country of Central Texas. He moved with his family to Pearland in 1965 and both his son and daughter graduated from Pearland schools. Mayor Reid became active in Pearland and served as Scout Troop Committee Chairman, City Planning Commissioner, City Councilman, Chairman of the Pearland Library Board, Chairman of Brazoria Drainage District #4, and as Mayor.

Business Owner & Political Analyst Fox 26 Jacquie Baly:

“Mayor Tom Reid has done an excellent job representing the City of Pearland. His heart and head are in the right place. The residents of Pearland are blessed to have such a dedicated public servant as their leader. Mayor Reid you have my full support and endorsement in your re-election bid. Please let me know how I can help you in this race and in the future.� VOTE FOR MAYOR TOM REID ON MAY 2, 2017

ship and is a Vice President of the Economic Alliance of the Houston Port Region. He is also Chairman of the Pearland Development Authority, and the Pearland Area Citizens Corps. Mayor Reid believes that regional partnerships on transportation, surface water, and air quality are essential to economic growth and quality of life for both Pearland and the Houston Gulf Coast area. He is working with local, regional, and state organizations and officials to make Pearland a quality city that will make us all proud to say we live in Pearland.

Traffic and Roadway Projects

We should all be proud that Pearland is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation – but growth brings challenges. We must strengthen our city for the future by continuing multiple transportation solutions for Pearland commuters such as Park and Ride, light rail, and support the toll lanes for SH-288. We must also complete our city roadway and street construction plans to provide mobility and other major capital improvements for our citizens.

Public Safety and City Services

We must continue Pearland’s recognized quality of life by managing our growth and continue to provide quality Police, Fire, EMS, and City Services. We must maintain our small town atmosphere, and brand Pearland as a Destination City with museums, cultural amenities and shopping and dining opportunities expected of the Gulf Coast’s 3rd largest city by population.

Quality of Life and Growth

Mayor Reid recognizes that rapid growth is not the same as quality growth. He feels we are fortunate to have a dedicated Council and professional staff that have worked in partnership with other community organizations to make Pearland a special place to live, work, and play. He will provide proven leadership and experience in city government and will work to continue the progress that has been made.

Economic Growth and Taxes

We must grow our economy by keeping our taxes as low as we can afford and still provide quality City Services and continue to make Pearland a unique city that will attract corporations and businesses to develop a strong economic development tax. ----------------------------------------------------Political Ad Paid for by the Campaign to Re-Elect Mayor Tom Reid 2017



I have been honored to serve FBISD as a trustee these past three years and as Board President this past year. We have made great strides as a Board and are currently a Finalist for the HEB Excellence in Education Award. My work as a trustee on behalf of the students in FBISD has been extremely rewarding. Our current Board has led the district to developing and implementing innovative instructional programs, such as allocating $2 million in resources to two struggling schools with the EDGE program. We have expanded professional development options during the school year and hired instructional coaches for all Title 1 schools. We have approved teacher, principal and staff raises and hired additional staff to increase support for students and classroom teachers. We have increased stipends for teachers who invest additional time and effort in coaching, fine arts, and student clubs. We have adopted a District of Innovation plan that will provide greater local control for our families and flexibility in instruction and planning for the district. We have built or are in the process of building 7 new schools, including a Career & Technical Education Center, to accommodate our growing community. We are working to develop inclusive educational classrooms and practices for all students, beginning in pre-school. FBISD is on the path to becoming a model district in Texas in many areas and the current Board has led the way in advocating for our students in the State and Nation. With three children attending schools in the district, all receiving various services including special education and GT, I am running for reelection in order to continue helping to lead FBISD in these and other innovative ways for the benefit of all of our students. Over the past year that I have served as president, my priorities have been to: (1) drive Board-level strategic planning and adoption of the Profile of a Graduate through creation of a Vision & Planning Committee; (2) set clear legislative goals and effec-

tively advocate on behalf of all students and teachers in FBISD through creation of a Legislative Committee; (3) expand Board community engagement and partnerships by holding Board Listening Tours and Workshop sessions at community high schools and by coordinating joint meetings with city councils; (4) create policy and Board priorities that guide FBISD to expand innovative instructional programs that support classroom teachers, offer strategies for diverse learners, create inclusive environments and improve student achievement, including the EDGE program, restorative discipline, co-teach classrooms, instructional coaching and creation of an inclusive pre-school model; and (5) begin the process of becoming a District Of Innovation in order to increase local control and flexibility for planning and instruction. If re-elected, I will continue to work on all of these priorities. As an attorney with over 20 years of experience, I have used my experience to advocate on behalf of students in FBISD and throughout Texas. I’ve been outspoken on various subjects that affect education including truancy, school finance, the newly passed A through F rating system, special education, and school vouchers. I am currently working with other school districts and organizations to build a coalition of support for education laws and policies that benefit not only the students in FBISD but all students who attend public schools in Texas. Prior to serving on the FBISD Board, I was managing member of my law firm, Dry & Tassin, PLLC, where I practiced Intellectual Property and Special Education Law. In 2011, I was recognized as a Texas Rising Star by Texas Super Lawyers Magazine. In 2003, my husband, Shannon, and I co-founded Father’s Joy, a charitable organization that supports children with disabilities and their families. As a FBISD parent for eleven years, I served in many capacities in my children’s schools. I was founding PTO president at my daughters' Title 1 school where I served for three years. I have also served on school fundraising committees, VIPS, dance committees, booster clubs, decorating committees and am a volunteer in the FBISD mentor program. My husband and I are 20-year residents of Missouri City and we have three daughters attending FBISD schools. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pol. Ad.

THANK YOU! Why I decided to run:

First and foremost I care about the education of all children. I am seeking this position to make a positive difference in how we educate the children in FBISD. There are perceived differences between schools on the east and west sides of the district. I will work to ensure all schools in the district provide a quality education for the students we serve. I want the students at every school to boastfully say “I graduated from ….” I want parents to be confident that the school they are zoned to is a GREAT school. I want teachers to also be proud of where they work. I am a student advocate and I will be the board member who will always raise the question “Is this best for students?” before we cast a vote.

Who am I?

I am a long-time Fort Bend resident, a 28-year veteran educator and an administrator with a proven track record for turning around struggling schools. I have witnessed the uphill battle that some schools face. I clearly understand the support needed for parents, teachers, and administrators. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from the University of Houston and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M University. For 25-years, I serviced Fort Bend ISD as a teacher and administrator. I am a practitioner who understands how policy matters and how it allows educators to do what is best for students. I am eager to team with the present board in

“Believe in the Possibi order to do the work necessary for continuous improvement. Each individual trustee on the board brings a different experience or viewpoint, my viewpoint includes classroom instruction and knowledge of daily campus life. I believe we all plant seeds in order to help a community grow. Fort Bend is a community where I live and have raised both of my children. FBISD is a positive experience in my life and I plan to give back as a servant for the District.

Gary's Message:

I actively serve the entire City of Pearland as the voice of the people. Just like most in our City, I want to maintain the great hometown feel of this City we call home, while managing the growth. I am passionate about meeting and listening to the citizens of our City.When they have issues, I work to address them in a timely manner. Not always is it possible to fix issues right away, but I work towards fixing them within budgetary limitations and time constraints. I understand how our city charter was designed and make sure to communicate to our citizens how and who can help them with concerns. As a representative of the City, I am active in working with several state and local organizations to ensure Pearland has a voice, including the Texas Municipal League (TML), the Texas Department of Transportation, (TXDOT), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the Houston Galveston Area Council (HGAC), and I attend both Pearland Days and Brazoria County Days in Austin to work with our state representatives on issues and concerns for our City and our county.

“MIKE FLOYD WON!” - Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher of HBC Magazine®

The Future Starts with Education... Mike Floyd is the youngest candidate for elected office in Pearland history, but don’t let Mike’s age trick you! Mike has been involved in local and community politics for the past 7 years, serving on Rep. Ed Thompson’s Youth Advisory Council, shadowing Federal Judge John W. DeGravelles, managing and operating over 5 campaigns, attending national political con-


ventions, and is well versed in the issues of our district. Mike has been a longtime advocate for student rights in Pearland ISD. Not only has he gone to Pearland schools his entire life, but he is committing himself to improving our schools for others. During his time as a student of Pearland ISD, Mike has served as President of Dawson High School for the past two years, has founded

several on and off campus organizations, and successfully altered the Pearland ISD dress code in 2016, a change that students, parents, teachers, and even administrators have called a “great move”. By working with senior administration and by engaging students, Mike has implemented more policy changes in Pearland ISD than any other student in history. Mike is a Pearland native, growing up

his entire life in our great city. Each of Mike’s 5 brothers and sisters have started and finished their education in Pearland schools. A member of an active family, Mike has led several political organizations and has organized community events, international fundraisers for the needy, and has been recognized by the Pearland Police Department and the Pearland ISD Board for “Service Above Self” for his record-breaking Toys-for-Tots Christmas Collection Drive. In 2016, Mike was fully supported and sponsored by the American Legion, America’s largest Veteran Organization. Never before in Pearland ISD history has a student been elected to the Board of Trustees. Mike believes it is long overdue and is a great opportunity for someone who knows what is going on inside of the classrooms to help set district policy. There is a disconnect between the district and the campuses, which has been a challenge for teachers, parents, and students. That’s why Mike has more contributions from Pearland ISD teachers and employees than any other candidate running for the school board. It’s essential that the board understands how policies implemented at the top would impact each student and every classroom.


Our community demands a high level of transparency from our elected officials. In 2017, the School Board voted 7-0 to move

the public comment sign up time to 4:30pm, a time that many working parents and active community residents cannot often make. Mike believes this should be reversed and the time slots expanded. Our elected officials should be interested and willing to hear our community and their comments/concerns. Pearland ISD needs more transparency at every level.

World Class Schools

The modern world is competitive and global. While we need to teach Pearland


M The Future Begins Now...

students Pearland values, we also must prepare each of them for the challenges ahead. This means that Pearland schools need to have a broad range of opportunities for our diverse student base to expand their own knowledge and harness valuable skills. Success isn’t getting kids through high school – it’s preparing them for college and/or great jobs!

Fiscal Responsibility With such a high tax rate in Pearland already, we do NOT need any more taxes! With a deficit over $8 million and over $500 million in debt, Pearland ISD needs a balanced budget. While difficult, it is important to ensure that our community and our children aren’t saddled with debt in the years to come!

Real Leadership

Mike is running to bring a new perspective and real leadership to the board. With 13 years of Pearland education, Mike knows where we are succeeding and where we need to adjust our methods. With more teacher support than any other candidate, Mike is fighting for ensure all employees in Pearland ISD are treated with dignity and respect. Mike had been called “the real deal” by education leaders in the greater Houston area.

As a real estate broker Sherry understands that to build a leading city it also takes quality leaders with a clear understanding of home values, commercial and retail development. Pearland requires planning with focus on taxes, transportation, safety, infrastructure and needs to provide arts, culture and history to our people. Sherry has developed commercial property in Pearland and knows what will take for Pearland to be a city that investors choose when thinking of expansion or relocation. Sherry Stockwell also owns two flourishing businesses. One on the East side and the other on the West side of Pearland.

“Sherry Stockwell brought forth some awesome ideas to grow Pearland in a responsible way. My hope is that the governing body for Pearland would seriously consider her ideas.” -- Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher of HBC Magazine® THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL AD PAID FOR BY THE SHERRY STOCKWELL CAMPAIGN


“Lorenzo Angelo DeCamps came up short in his bid to unseat Trustee Jason Burdine in the race for FBISD Trustee for Position #1. However, we are hopeful that the FBISD Board will seriously consider some of the awesome ideas and priorities brought forth by Lorenzo Angelo DeCamps.” -- Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher of HBC Magazine®

Top 3 Priorities:

1. Hold administration accountable for the programs the school district maintains they offer the students and parents especially when it comes to special education. 2. Support our teachers and try to minimize the amount of red tape they are required to cut through. I want teachers to be able to focus their efforts on teaching and work to remove the obstacles that make that challenging. 3. I want to help keep parents, students, and teachers involved in the decisions Fort Bend ISD makes. I think full transparency in those decisions is crucial and I want parents, students, and teachers to know the why behind any decisions that are made.

Message from Angelo:

I have been a resident of Fort Bend County for over thirty years and I am very proud to call myself

a product of FBISD. My wife and I are raising our eight children in Fort Bend. Our two oldest have graduated from FBISD and we currently have two children at Travis High School, one at Bowie Middle School, and two at Oakland Elementary. I am passionate about the education of our children and have a vested interest in the success of our school district. As a student and parent I have seen firsthand how easy it is for our school district to label students and not communicate clearly to parents their rights as well as the reasoning behind administrative decisions.


I am currently a commercial banker with over eighteen years in the financial industry with the majority of those years being spent in a senior leadership management role.


BA Finance, MBA in Business Management

FBISD’S Biggest Challenge right now:

I think transparency in matters of financial and administrative decision making is the biggest challenge for the district. Currently it seems the board is transparent after a decision is made but I feel they do not communicate to the parents, students, and teachers before that decision is made and explain how it will impact the district.

Current board support for teachers:

I truly believe the board support for teachers is failing because it seems that we are requiring more from them and yet asking them to do it with less resources. One of the things I would do differently is hold quarterly town hall meetings where we communicate the decisions we are thinking about implementing and listen to their feedback and concerns.
