Bill Hastings for Mayor of Katy
"Preserving Our Past With an Eye for the Future"
Motivated with a heart for service, Bill Hastings would be honored to continue serving the Katy Community as the next mayor.
The growth that we are experiencing in Katy has exceeded our expectations. What I have learned during my 43-year career in public safety for the City of Katy is that residents want their voices heard on issues that affect the place that they call home and to know that their opinions matter.
I have always valued the relationships I have built in Katy and if I am elected to the office of Mayor I plan to build on the trust and confidence that citizens have placed in me and make good on all of the concerns that preserve and protect all residents.
When I moved to Katy in the early 70s, this town was a very small, productive rice farming community. The rapid growth that we have witnessed has placed even more importance on the increased responsibilities that fall upon our leaders.
As your mayor I will be committed to preserving the small-town atmosphere while managing positive growth.
The safety of our citizens is my top priority. By providing all of the resources needed to our emergency services by way of workforce and equipment, we can lower response times and offer heightened protection for our families and businesses.
The infrastructure of the city is paramount to the safety and enjoyment of our families and is also an important focal point for me if I am elected. I will be addressing this with measures to prevent flooding and update and improve aging water and sewer lines, roadways and sidewalks.
As far as management of growth, I will encourage smart growth that would ensure we maintain the small-town atmosphere and excellent city services that people moved to Katy to experience. I would also concentrate efforts to expand our parks and recreation program.
I will encourage cohesiveness by promoting improved communication between our city, citizens, and businesses with regard to code enforcement, permitting issues and trash services and be 100% available to and responsive to community members.
My wife, Susan Denise and I have been married for 32 years. We have raised our five children in Katy and now spend invaluable time with our nine grandchildren.
Susan Denise is the director of the Crisis Center at Katy Christian Ministries. We attend Katy Community Fellowship Church and are both motivated with hearts of service.
Having attended 400+ city council meetings during my 43-year career with the City of Katy, I have developed an interest in city government and a desire to serve in a leadership capacity beyond public safety.
I would be honored to continue my service to the citizens and business owners in the City of Katy as your mayor.
P.S. "I will not be accepting gifts or contributions from entities and/or individuals who may do business with the City of Katy or seek approval of a project from City Council."
