Strong Economy

For John Whitmire Houston is a place of opportunity––whether it’s in the energy industry, medical center, port or other industries, people move to our city to work.

As mayor, Whitmire will lead the effort to grow our economy:

  • Working with industry to maintain Houston’s status as the Energy Capital of the World, including renewable energy
  • Continuing to diversify our economy by attracting new jobs to the city
  • Supporting small businesses by making it easier to open a business, build a facility, and connect to our infrastructure
  • Joining with area schools and colleges to ensure we are producing homegrown talent that attracts and sustains employers.
