Todd Kinsey has been a very active member of the community since he, his wife, Heather, and their two sons moved to League City in 2003.
When he joined city council in 2012 the city had a number of problems, chief among them was out of control spending which caused the city’s debt to skyrocket to nearly $280 million.
