Marquette Greene-Young

Meet Marquette

Marquette Greene-Young was born to Beatrice Greene and the late Joseph E. Greene, a Vietnam Veteran, in Opelousas, Louisiana.  She is the youngest of five children and the proud mother of a 21-year-old daughter. At an early age she grew up in church with her family. Her faith has guided her throughout her life.

Marquette is a graduate of Southern University and the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University, both located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Marquette has taught high school (East Baton Rouge Parish School System & Alief ISD) and college (Southeastern Louisiana University & Southern University) mathematics for a total of 14 years.

After teaching for several years, Marquette decided to pursue her other lifelong ambition of becoming an attorney.  Marquette entered law school when her daughter was only 18 months.  This was a daunting task, but failure was never an option.  After graduation, Marquette became licensed in Louisiana and started practicing law. Additionally, in 2016 Marquette sat for and passed the Texas Bar.   Marquette now practices in both states primarily focusing on commercial litigation, family law, and probate/successions law.  The family and probate/successions practices allow her to help families in need of cost effective, competent representation.

Marquette relocated to Texas 11 years ago in search of better economic opportunities so that she could provide for her daughter.  As a single mother, she understands the financial and emotional needs of families, as well as the importance of community.  Marquette appreciates the African Proverb, “It takes a village.”  She would not have been able to work and be there for her daughter without the help of her family and friends.  Marquette moved to Sterling Lakes at Iowa Colony in 2019 because she was looking for an area with the serenity of a small town but accessibility to the city of Houston.  As a result of growing up in a small town, she saw Iowa Colony as home.  An escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Marquette has been a firm but caring teacher to her students and a fierce advocate for her clients.  If elected, she intends to represent the residents of Iowa Colony with the same preparedness and tenacity.

Infrastructure:

Iowa Colony’s population has grown from 1,170 in 2010 to 5,989 in 2020 per worldpopulationreview.com.  That is 412% growth over ten years.  Such dramatic growth causes a strain on infrastructure.  Residents of Iowa Colony now must deal with traffic issues, frequent light flickers along with power and internet outages.  These are the pains of growing.  Growth is inevitable for if we stop growing, we cease to exist.  My goal on the Iowa Colony City Council is to help find innovative ways to grow.  I will work with the business community, including builders, to develop infrastructure growth including communication technology such as cell phone and Wi-Fi services.   With the pandemic, more people are working from home and these services are essential.  Additionally, the traumatic effects of the events resulting from Winter Storm Uri highlight the importance of local government being more actively involved in the infrastructure of our community.  We must put people before profit and hold our elected officials accountable.

Economic Growth

Economic growth and infrastructure go hand in hand.  It is important that the mayor and city council work together to drive where and how growth occurs by dealing with zoning and density levels.  With population growth, more services such as gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc. become necessary.  We should not have to drive 15 minutes to get to a grocery store.  The newly built businesses are a good start, but we have to do better attracting more businesses into the city which will generate revenue and help to fund the increasing infrastructure needs.  We must do this while maintaining a rural, small town identity.  We must create an environment where we all thrive.

Building a Strong Community

To build a strong community, we must bridge the gap between all communities of Iowa Colony.  It does not matter where you live, on a farm or in a subdivision, we all want what is best for Iowa Colony.  It starts with getting to know our neighbors.  We can work together to help our city reach its fullest potential. The city along with area businesses should sponsor events and activities for families to come out and get to know each other.    As a city councilwoman, I will make it my mission to proactively reach out to all community members and work diligently to create events and activities here in Iowa Colony for our citizens. 

Iowa Colony is an expanding community and needs to be ready to accommodate both residential and commercial growth.  I am ready to use my personal and professional experiences to make a difference in this community and help it to grow smartly. I decided to run for Iowa Colony City Council because I am “qualified and ready to lead!”
