Councilman Todd Yancey

Place 1 - Term expires 5/2024

Todd YanceyBorn and raised in Conroe, Todd Yancey graduated from Conroe High School and went to work at his family’s business, Yancey Concrete. Immediately, he put his Texas work ethic and natural leadership skills to use.  By 1985, he had already ascended to the role of Plant Operations Manager—a position he has thrived in for the last 35 years.  For the last four decades, Mr. Yancey has worked tirelessly for Yancey Concrete, building it into a cornerstone of the community and helped lay the groundwork for the booming growth of Montgomery County.  His teams’ work has reached every corner of Conroe, Montgomery, Magnolia, Willis, Spring, and the Woodlands. 

Mr. Yancey is the proud father of two children, Carter (24) and Sarah Beth (23), who both attended Montgomery High School and Texas A&M.  He brings the same values to fatherhood and faith as he does to his work. His integrity permeates every aspect of his life, and his dedication to doing the right thing never wavers as he strives to be the best father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and Christian.  He never misses a Sunday morning at the Lone Star Cowboy Church or an opportunity to share his faith with anyone he meets, either through conversation or by the example he sets. Mr. Yancey values his family and his relationship with God above all else.

Mr. Yancey ran for Council because results require accountability, commitment and the general knowledge of what is most important to the people of this city.  He believes one of the biggest challenges facing the City of Conroe is growth and preparing our infrastructure to handle that growth.  His goal for the city is to meet the needs of the citizens, operate within the budget, and to not raise taxes while preparing for future growth.

“I was born and raised in Conroe and it is my responsibility to ensure its success for my children and future grandchildren. I can’t promise you I will change the world, but I will do everything I can to better this city. 
Together we can lead this community into the future and be a role model for every growing city across our state.  My door is always open to your thoughts, concerns and suggestions.”
