Needville Police Department
I was elected to Needville City Council five years ago. City Council started working on the city budget a few months into my term. I was absolutely astounded at the level of salaries for the city employees, especially our devoted Police Officers. Police Officers had a starting salary of just $26,000 per year. Yes, you read that correctly...$26,000 a year!!!
Since my tenure on City Council and as Mayor, Police Officers salaries have increased every year. Though the salaries are not yet at an increase comparible to other larger populated cities, we are continuing to make progress.
Needville has some of the most dedicated employes a city could desire. My pledge is to continue to raise employee salaries to a level that will match their loyalty to the city of Needville and their excellent work ethic. Thank you for all you do!
