Dear Mrs. Vanessa Pappas,
On the heels of President Trump’s
announcement this morning, I write to you to today to extend the offer of
connecting with my office and the economic drivers in Fort Bend County, Texas
as you search for an opportune place to expand your Global Headquarters in the
United States –specifically Texas.
I am pleased to learn about this positive
partnership between TikTok Global and the United States Government to address
all security concerns in part by bringing on business associates like Oracle
and Walmart. As you look to employ 25,000 additional Americans, your company
would greatly benefit from learning about Fort Bend County and our extremely
diverse and highly qualified workforce in addition to one of the best qualities
of life a community can boast.
Fort Bend County is a unique place. From
the home of the original 300 families led by Stephen F. Austin to establish the
State of Texas, we have now become the most diverse and fastest growing
communities in the United States. Since then we catalyzed our business climate
to now become a magnet for many technology companies – most recently welcoming
Amazon.com Inc. with many of the other tech companies that call Fort Bend
Moreover, we are proud to deliver
extremely high graduation rates, are one of the top per capita purchasers in
the state of Texas, have many affordable, wide-open spaces, and are
strategically located for the most efficient distribution of goods domestically
and internationally – all resulting in a highly qualified and educated
workforce that is ready to embrace the jobs of the 21st century.
With the great educational success of Fort
Bend County schools, we are also home to a variety of incredible master planned
communities that offer great places to live and work. We stand ready to work
with you and your team to explore the many options that exist in our community.
I invite you to visit Fort Bend County and
see for yourself why our community is the best place for your new Global
headquarters and future programs. My team and I look forward to hearing from
Fort Bend County Judge
