About the Office of the City Secretary
Functioning much like the Secretary of State, the City Secretary is the local official who maintains the integrity of the election process, ensures transparency and access to City records, facilitates the City's legislative process, and is the recorder of local government history. The City Secretary acts as the compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes, including the Open Meetings Act and the Public Information Act, and serves as the filing authority for campaign finance reports and financial disclosure statements.
The City Secretary's Office provides information to the citizens of Texas City, elected officials, staff and the public in accordance with election, state and federal law, the City's Home-Rule Charter, and other rules and regulations as adopted, in a courteous and service-oriented manner.
