Keith Bell has always had a passion for public service. As a pastor for his church, Bell’s commitment led him to another calling – becoming the Mayor of the City of La Marque. Using his public speaking skills, community engagement, and involvement in his congregation, Bell was elected to the role of Mayor in May 2021. As Mayor, Bell has been committed to getting to know the residents of La Marque by listening, communicating, and learning where La Marque’s greatest needs are within the community. Some of Bell’s daily duties include creating local partnerships, working with government departments on funding and expansion, facilitating council meetings, and more. Bell finds at local events, City Council meetings, or speaking to individuals one-on-one is where he can really get to know his residents and create connections with the community.
