MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- John Hennigan, former Montgomery County Hospital District Board member, is looking to return to the board in the upcoming election. Mr. Hennigan served on the board for five years and held the Vice Chair position under three different Chairmen over that time frame.

“It was a great education of different styles of management,” stated Hennigan. He had also served as the legislative committee chair for three years, was on the first countywide Public Health District Board of Directors, and actively worked along side the United Ways Healthy Living Alliance to bring programs and awareness to the county concerning the obesity status of it’s citizens.

Hennigan explained why he was seeking election.

“Although the board members I served with and later reported to, was rewarding, there are bigger issues that have to be addressed for the future success of our organization,” said Hennigan.

Hennigan has outlined his four major priorities:

- Mobility...response times

- Measured expansion/coverage in high-density areas

- Cost effectiveness while expanding coverage

- Legislative action to asure that all EMS organizations are held to the same high standards MCHD strives to achieve.

Hennigan went on to say, while stepping down from the board to take over as the Interim CEO, he saw upcoming hurdles in Montgomery County emergency services that he wants to have a voice on.

John Hennigan has served in Montgomery County on several different boards and committees over his 23 years in The Woodlands, and feels the need to bring key issues to the forefront in order to keep MCHD services at it’s best. Currently he sits on the Grogans Mill Village Association Board, and the US Green Builders Council (Houston). Hennigan founded the first St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser in the Greater Houston area, and chairs the St. Baldrick’s Day event, that has raised over a quarter of a million dollars for children’s cancer research over the last seven years. More recently, Hennigan was honored as one of The Woodlands Home Town Heroes in 2012.

“This was a great honor to be in the alumni of people I truly admire, and who have made our community what it is today,” said Hennigan.

A member of St. Simon and Jude Catholic Church, he and his wife give back to the community as committee members, Eucharistic ministry at church and nursing home.

“Not only have I had a chance to work with the board to build consensus, I felt due to internal issues, I was the right man to run the district while searching for a new CEO. Within my first 45 days in that position, the changes I made created an annual savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars,” added Hennigan. It was an honor to serve for five years, earn the trust of staff and the community for which I ultimately served.”
