As Governor of Texas, I am pleased to extend greetings to readers of Here is Houston. Whether you are relocating your business, planning a corporate gathering, or simply rediscovering the Bayou City, I invite you to explore all the possibilities this great Texas city has to offer.
With our business-friendly climate and spirit of innovation, Texas boasts the strongest economy in the world. We are a state with low taxes and reasonable regulations and a nationwide leader in economic growth and job creation.
Houston is an essential component of our thriving economy. Home to a world-class workforce, cutting edge medical research, premier art museums, thrilling professional sports, outstanding universities and friendly and diverse neighbors, this dynamic city is one of the Lone Star State’s finest. The Port of Houston and accessibilty of the area’s airport and highway systems also make the Houston area an undeniable leader in international trade opportunities.
As you may know, the road I traveled to become Texas’ governor took me through Houston-my very first election was a judge in the 129th District Court.
Whether you are moving here to grow your business, pursue career opportunities, attend school or enjoy retirement, I know Houston’s legendary charm will provide a wonderful experience.
First Lady Cecilia Abbott joins me in sending best wishes and welcoming you to explore the great City of Houston.
