The City of Weston Lakes is in the process of rebuilding our Emergency Management team.

We are looking for community volunteers to fill many positions. The job description of the Emergency Management Coordinator is outlined in the link below. We also need volunteers to fill numerous spots in areas including command, logistics, finance and communications. We will also be rebuilding our CERT teams. Many Weston Lakes residents were part of our organization in the past and we invite you to use your experience to help out again. We also have many new residents who we would like to welcome to the team so that the community can benefit from the experience you bring with you. If you would like to be part of the emergency management team, know any Weston Lakes residents who might be interested, or would like more information about it please contact us at citysec@cityofwestonlakes-tx.gov or call 281-533-0907.

Mayor Mary Rose Zdunkewicz

Mayor Mary Rose Zdunkewicz was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, but came to Fort Bend County at the age of two and has been a resident of Weston Lakes since 1985. She was one of the first “settlers” in Weston Lakes and has been a major contributor to the community by participating in public service, community development, business and volunteer activities, such as, her service on the Board of Directors of the Fort Bend Chapter of the March of Dimes. Mayor Zdunkewicz attended Lamar Consolidated Independent School District.  She spent many wonderful years living in the town of Rosenberg. In addition to raising two children, Mayor Zdunkewicz was a small business entrepreneur, operating clothing and gift shops in Missouri City.  She has worked as a real estate sales representative for many of the major builders and developers in Fort Bend County and the Simonton-Fulshear area, and Mayor Zdunkewicz currently holds a valid Texas Real Estate Sales License.  She served for twelve years on the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District at a time when many of the plans and programs were put in place to respond to the steady growth in the population of Fort Bend County. She was elected to the office of Mayor for the City of Weston Lakes in the City’s initial election by receiving the most votes in that high voter-turnout election.  Mayor Zdunkewicz has been married to Vic Zdunkewicz, her husband of 53 years, who has been the longest serving member of the Fort Bend County MUD 81 Board of Directors.  Her two children and four grandchildren have all attended the local schools and are proud Texans.  Mayor Zdunkewicz is a communicant at Guardian Angel Catholic Church.

Just over 7 weeks left in the 84th legislative session and transportation continues to be a priority for lawmakers from all over the state.  If you missed yesterday morning’s live chat with Senator Robert Nichols and Rep. Joe Pickett, watch it here now.  Both leaders provided an excellent overview of top transportation issues so far this session.This morning the Senate Transportation Committee heard testimony for and against SB 1601 which would prevent High Speed Rail projects from exercising eminent domain authority.  Following testimony, it passed the committee in a 5-4 vote and has the potential to severely impair route implementation.  TAG will continue to oppose this and other legislation aimed at hindering high speed rail and we ask that you take less than 2 minutes to send a letter to your legislators urging them to also oppose this legislation.  If you are interested in learning more, feel free to attend an open house meeting.  The full meeting tour can be found here.  Our state cannot afford to lose high speed rail.

 

Tomorrow morning the House Transportation Committee convenes at 8 a.m. to review several bills.  TAG will formally support HB 373 (Simmons), HB 1370 (Phillips) and HJR 29 (Pickett) which all aim to dedicate funds from the motor vehicle sales tax.
