Former Sugar Land Councilor Himesh Gandhi appointed to Texas State Board of Public Accountancy

Former Sugar Land city councilor Himesh Gandhi has been appointed by Governor Greg Abbot to the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy, the governor’s office announced last week.

The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy ensures that certificates issued as Chartered Public Accountants meet the necessary qualifications and can practice competently in the profession of public accountancy.

Gandhi’s term on the board expires on January 31, 2025.

Sugar Land-based lawyer and shareholder of Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC, Gandhi resigned from Sugar Land City Council in November 2020 after four consecutive terms.

Gandhi is certified in Commercial Real Estate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Fort Bend Bar Association.

“I am grateful to Governor Abbott, the Texas Senate and members of the House for placing their trust in me,” Gandhi said in a statement. “This appointment is a real moment of honor for me and for my family. I have been blessed with great opportunities to serve my home town of Sugar Land, and I look forward to doing the same for the great state of Texas.

Gandhi has also served as vice president of the Arc of Fort Bend and a member of the board of directors of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and Fort Bend Children’s Advocates. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Houston Baptist University and a Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law.
