About Dean

Dean is not new to public service or hard work. As a longtime Republican activist, he has served in many capacities, including precinct chair, delegate and caucus official at both Senatorial and State GOP conventions.

He also previously served as Mayor and Councilmember for the City of Sugar Land. Under his guidance, the City not only saw the creation of Sugar Land Town Square, but property tax reductions by more than 33%, as well as the arrival of a new University of Houston Campus. Dean worked diligently to improve mobility with the widening of US 59. He currently serves as a Director on the Fort Bend Tollway Authority where he works to improve mobility in Fort Bend County.

In addition to his time in public service, Dean has freely volunteered his legal services by serving as legal counsel and an ex-officio board member for Fort Bend Cares, at 501(c)(3). He also has served as a director and legal counsel for the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, a director of the Houston Galveston Area Council, as well as the Greater Fort Bend Economic Development Council. By far, his most rewarding volunteer work has been serving as a former Little League coach for his two sons.
