Rosenberg Mayor Kevin Raines has hit the ground running.
After taking his oath of office on Tuesday night, the newly elected mayor of Rosenberg spent the following day meeting with city staff and rounded out his Wednesday at the Rosenberg Police Department.
“I wanted to talk to them and let the officers know that (the council) supports them,” Raines said.
“It’s National Police Week, so we also wanted to pay respect to the officers that have fallen in the line of duty.”
Raines also brought dozens of city of Rosenberg mugs for the officers as a National Police Week gift.
Police Chief Jonathan White said he remembered when Raines, who used to work at RPD, was a detective.
“I think his leadership is phenomenal,” White told his officers.
