New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
Living in Sugar Land for 12 years and Fort Bend County for 30, Jacobson has personally experienced the growth and success of Sugar Land. He believes keeping crime and taxes low, having a fiscally sound City, improving mobility, enhancing parks, and providing excellent city services are fundamental to continued success. One of the things he appreciates the most is the diversity we enjoy. “I love learning about other cultures, religions and food. Where else can I become close friends with neighbors from all over the world? Our diversity makes Sugar Land a very special and welcoming place.”
As his experience clearly shows, Jacobson is passionate about our community. “I am keenly aware of the delicate balance between quality of life and growth and will bring a steady hand to our City government. I am excited for the opportunity to serve my neighbors in District 3 and will work hard to represent you well.”
