❝ I can't think of a finer man to represent our city than Bill Hastings. He is loyal to the core and has more integrity in one of his pinkie's than most will have in a lifetime. Bill has a genuine love for Katy, TX and even more for the citizens that reside in it. I personally have never heard one negative comment about him, seriously, never (and that in its self is saying a lot considering the high office he holds in our city) and I've certainly never met anyone who doesn't just love him. ❞
❝ He has an open door policy and makes everyone feel like he's known them for a lifetime. It didn't matter that he was the Police Chief during Hurricane Harvey, he personally was trying to find temporary housing for strangers that got stranded in our city due to the flood water, rather than passing them off to one of his officer's or to a local church or Pastor, he didn't rest until he personally networked and knew that every person that needed his help was placed in some sort of temporary housing where they were safe and sound. Just shows the true nature of this mans heart. ❞
❝ He's a generous man with his time, talent and his resources. He'd give you the shirt off his back in a heartbeat if needed. He is a gentle giant and a principled decision maker, extremely fair, tougher than nails when his hand is forced; a force to be reckoned with, I can assure you. I'm honored to be a close friend and I couldn't endorse a man more than Bill Hastings for Mayor, after all, he's earned the right to lead us for as many years as God will allow. #DedicatedLeader#ProvenLeader#HeHasEarnedIt ❞
❝ I meet Chief Hastings when I was hired as an EMT for the Katy Fire Department while going through nursing school . A true leader and amazing man!! Definitely has my vote!! I am even willing to campaign for him!! He will definitely make Katy even better than it already is!! ❞
❝ I truly believe the Lord is going to put you in a place of leadership as you continue your walk. You are a man of integrity and honesty and fairness. Blessings to you and your family as you are led into a new chapter in your life and your families life. Behind every great man is a great family. ❞
