HOUSTON(TIP): A well-known Indian American community leader and a politician, Himesh Gandhi, formally won council seat in Sugar Land, Texas on May 5.

The win is Gandhi’s fourth and final term. He received 100 percent of the 4,353 votes.

“Thank you to the citizens of Sugar Land
 for your trust and confidence as I serve my fourth and final term. It 
has been an honor and a privilege to serve!” Gandhi wrote on Facebook.

Gandhi was first elected in 2012, when he was 35, the youngest councilman to be elected in a citywide vote.

He has served on numerous city council 
committees and was also a member of the task force that spearheaded 
development of the Smart Financial Center at Sugar Land—an iconic 
concert and performance hall that opened last year.

Other successes and projects launched by
 the city during Gandhi’s previous term include the successful 
annexations of Greatwood and New Territory, the acquisition of a former 
prison site for redevelopment, the completion of drainage projects, and 
the return to normal operations after the devastating effects of 
Hurricane Harvey.

In 2015, Gandhi was honored by the 
Houston Business Journal as one of the region’s 40 under 40 young 
leaders. The Indian Panorama had carried the news then.


Gandhi earned a B.B.A. from Houston 
Baptist University and his law degree from the South Texas College of 
Law Houston. He, his wife Farrah and their son Jaiden live in the 
Telfair neighborhood.
