THE WOODLANDS, TX -- ?David Cassidy, who for the past nine years has been involved in community activities to better The Woodlands, is pleased to announce his candidacy for The Woodlands Township Board of Directors Position 7. ?
“The Woodlands has some big challenges ahead and my independent thinking will ensure the right decisions are made for residents of this wonderful community,” Cassidy said. “First and foremost, The Woodlands faces some critical governance decisions. We need to tackle the best way to address incorporation issues with enhancing amenities and keeping our taxes low as our guiding principles. We will need to find the right person to serve as Township General Manager following his retirement next year.”
Cassidy also said he will focus on flooding mitigation, traffic management and business development.
“I am committed to enhancing our quality of life and amenities in a fiscally responsible manner,” Cassidy said. “We must ensure that the next generation will thrive in our hometown as much as we have.”
Cassidy’s roots in The Woodlands date back to the 1980s when he accompanied his then-girlfriend Jill to her McCullough High School prom. They have been together since.
“I am fortunate to have been married to my best friend Jill Cassidy for 25 years,” he said. “We have lived, worked, played, prayed and been blessed to raise our children, Hailey and Hannah, in The Woodlands for the past nine years. As a family, we have enjoyed the pools, parks and trails and participating in the many organized athletic events that make The Woodlands a great place to live.”
Cassidy was born in Houston and has lived in the area his entire life. He received his business degree from Sam Houston State University and his master’s degree in science from Texas Woman’s University.
Cassidy previously lived in the Houston Heights, where he was on the Heights Association Board of Trustees. He was active in their reforestation effort, personally planting over 200 trees, chaired the education committee promoting teacher classroom grants, in charge of security for the Heights festival and parade, and served as program director for monthly public meetings. Professionally, David was a manager in the service industry for seven years, has been a physical therapist for eighteen years and has been involved in real estate for 15 years. In his free time, David loves to travel with his family to the Rocky Mountains and volunteer at Congregation Beth Shalom in The Woodlands, where his wife serves on the Board of Trustees.
David is ready to roll up his sleeves, sharpen his pencil and be your representative for a better Woodlands.
“We do not need Washington-style or good old boy county politics in The Woodlands. Let’s keep money and special interests out of The Woodlands,” he said.
