Jai Daggett, local Pearland business owner, is running for Pearland City Council Position #2.
Born in Houston, Texas, Jai has called Texas home for most of his life. He and his wife, Katie, moved to Pearland 11 years ago. After working for several different organizations in the medical industry for more than 14 years, Daggett made the decision to start his own business to provide a more personal approach to doing business. He currently provides insurance consulting for a wide range of industries with varying employee counts.
Because Jai Daggett has a heart for service, he has been committed to giving back to the community that he loves and calls home by serving on the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Board along with several other education, health and child welfare boards including: Southwest Charter Schools, The Christus Foundation, and Child Advocates. He’s worked with the local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in the aftermath of Hurricane IKE providing Point of Dispense support and resource distribution.
Jai has dedicated his time to ensuring the success of his neighborhood’s annual National Night Out event, planning and organizing it for the past several years now. National Night Out is a national community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships. He’s also a regular volunteer for the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program in Alvin I.S.D. Watch D.O.G.S. is a nationally- recognized program that uses the positive influence of fathers and father-figures to be a presence in the schools and to be a positive and active role model for students at their school.
He is a member of the New Hope Church in Pearland and regularly volunteers his time with local cub and girl scouts. He has been married for 11 years and is the proud father of two children, Kaia 9 and Jaison 6.
If elected to the Pearland City Council, Daggett will work to improve transparency while providing a diverse point of view to the legislative body that governs one of the most diverse cities in the nation. He is a Pearlander who wants to represent you.
