CEO Brothers Produce/Houston Cold Storage Brent Erenwert Wins Friendswood City Council
FRIENDSWOOD, TX - A familiar face is coming to the Friendswood City Council—familiar to us in the produce industry that is. Brothers Produce/Houston Cold Storage CEO Brent Erenwert defeated incumbent Carl W. Gustafson this weekend, beating the career politician by a wide margin and earning a spot on the Houston suburb’s council.
“Working in the produce industry has taught me so much about managing people, logistics, integrity, and most of all service,” said Brent, on the occasion of his victory. “When you represent a city it is your job to be at their service. In the produce world, good thoughts bear good fruit and bad thoughts bear bad fruit.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, Erenwert gathered an impressive 978 votes to Gustafson’s 760.
And with an impressive 56.27 percent of total votes, Erenwert’s platform—which includes promoting sustainable growth and involving more young people in city affairs—resonated resoundingly with Friendswood voters.
We here at AndNowUKnow congratulate Brent and wish him the best in his burgeoning political career.
