Russell Jones started his presentation with good words for his daughter Stephanie Stigant and wife Thelma Jones, which shows his strong family values. His daughter is not only his office manager at the city, but also his campaign manger. He said he wants to concentrate on grassroots level campaign, where meeting maximum number of people and shaking hands with them, is important. That is why his foremost issue is families and providing them the best possible life style: Safe Environment; good parks and side walks; organizing cultural events and that is why he worked hard for Museum of Natural Sciences to come to Sugar Land as well; etc. He has always spoken my mind for the general population of Sugar Land and will continue to do that. He needs people at grassroots levels to come forward with their talent, money and time to assist him in preserving the good status of Sugar Land.
