Three candidates were nominated by board members at the April 16 meeting: Nelson, Walt Lisiewski and Peggy Hausman.
Nelson was nominated by Director Bob Milner and Vice Chair Bruce Rieser.
According to materials prepared for the April 16 meeting, Milner nominated Nelson, the lead pastor at Rose Hill United Methodist Church in Tomball, because of his involvement with the community, among other attributes.
"He is also an effective communicator and has proven over time to be a contributive and engaging member within a team or group," Milner said in the nomination. "He also is an independent thinker who is not shy about being the voice of contrast."
Lisiewski was nominated by board members Ann Snyder and John Anthony Brown. In her nomination, Snyder pointed out Lisiewski's work on community and governmental groups, including acting as chair of the Development Standards Committee, as well as his involvement with the Panther Creek Village Association and Municipal Utility District No. 1. Lisiewski ran for a seat on the board of directors in November 2019.
Board Chair Gordy Bunch nominated Hausman, who serves on the Montgomery County Appraisal District and has served with numerous agencies and entities in Montgomery County and The Woodlands, including the township board of directors.
The next board of directors meeting begins at 6 p.m. April 22.
