He is a board member of the Bay Area Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau and a member of the marketing committee. He has also co-chaired Beautification Day many times including the last two years. Mayor Denman counts as one of his greatest accomplishments the initiation of the annual peninsula cleanup day that he started in 1996. Beginning in 2004, the event was coordinated with Clear Creek Environmental Foundation (CCEF) that annually sponsors a cleanup day for most of the Clear Creek area including our peninsula. While on City Council, Mayor Denman was successful in getting Council to agree to open up the peninsula to visitors starting with a few days a week and eventually moving to seven days a week. He was also successful in starting our City’s first curbside recycling program in 2011. It has become one of the most popular programs in Nassau Bay in regards to citizen participation.
His areas of focus include infrastructure repairs, economic development, and city beautification (especially all waterfront areas including our peninsula).
