Kenjura announces bid for mayor of Branham

Although the filing period doesn’t officially start until next Wednesday, District 3 City Councilman Atwood Kenjura announced his candidacy for Mayor of Branham this week. Elections are scheduled for May 6th.

“I have been honored to be a member of the Branham City Council and it has given me a deeper understanding of our local government, experience working with leaders across the community and planning for the challenges and growth that will impact our neighborhood,” Kenjura said in a press release. .

Banner-Press spoke to Kenjura on Wednesday about his upcoming campaign. He said he feels very capable, knowing that there will be some challenges ahead.

He said that economic, retail and industrial growth are some of the main reasons he wanted to run.

“I don’t want Branham to lose his identity,” Kenjura said. “We will grow no matter what. Approaching. I think we just need to manage this growth. We just need to do it in a way that preserves what makes Branham so special. My family has lived here since the 1860s. I just love it.”

Kenjura said the difference between serving on the city council and being mayor comes down to a simple reason.

“It’s just about time,” he said. “By no means reduce the time the council spends on these issues, but the mayor is probably spending twice or three times as much. In addition, when you are mayor, the responsibility falls on you. So you should have time and now I have. To be honest, I couldn’t be mayor running a pharmacy (Kenjura) because both took time.”

The Banner announced on Tuesday that current mayor Milton Tate will not run for a new term, opening the door for someone new to be elected.

When asked about some of the challenges he expects to see in the coming years, growth and infrastructure were the focus of Kenjura.

“Mayor Tate survived the start of this growth. And so far so good,” Kenzhura told The Banner-Press. “Now we’re facing some infrastructure issues that have already surfaced and it’s only going to get worse. So this needs to be addressed. This will be our biggest challenge to save our streets, our water, our police and fire department. I mean, these are huge things that will come with challenges and some demands.”

As for why Kenjura decided he wanted to be mayor, he said it was the people.

“I have always enjoyed serving and giving back to society,” he said. “I love the people of Brenham. This is a very special city. I would love to run earlier, I just didn’t have time before.”
