Texas Supreme Court Justice Guzman administered the oath of office to Mayor Zimmerman before his wife and family, City of Sugar Land staff, and a limited audience due to COVID-19 limitations. Mayor Zimmerman, who was uncontested on the ballot, earned 41,418 votes. "I am honored to continue to serve ALL the citizens of Sugar Land and grateful to our community for having confidence in my leadership abilities. Together, with our City Council, we will continue our work to make Sugar Land the safest city in America and a place where we all can live, work, play and raise our families together," said Mayor Zimmerman.”
 
During Mayor Zimmerman's tenure, the City of Sugar Land has been host to the Sugar Land Skeeters minor league baseball team’s two national championships, the opening of the Smart Financial Center, worked to mitigate the impacts of Hurricane Harvey, welcomed our newly annexed residents of New Territory and Greatwood and guided our residents and businesses through the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Under his leadership, he and the City Council have worked with the Brazos River Authority, Fort Bend and other surrounding counties, levy improvement districts, and the Texas legislative delegation to develop solutions to mitigate erosion on the Brazos River. And our City has continued to experience both business and residential growth. The approved 2021 budget provides for continued financial resiliency and maximum flexibility due to the COVID-19's economic impact. Sugar Land continues to be resilient and inclusive under Mayor Zimmerman's leadership.
 
Mayor Zimmerman administered the oath of office to re-elected Councilmember At-Large, Position 2, Jennifer Lane, and newly elected Councilmember At-Large, Position 1, William Ferguson. Ferguson is replacing Councilmember Himesh Gandhi, who was term-limited after eight-1/2 years of service.
 
Joe is looking forward to continuing to represent his community, his neighbors, and all of Sugar Land. He and his wife of 44 years, Nancy, have made Sugar Land their home since 1990 and are active members of Second Baptist Church. Their daughter, Allison, her husband Chris Wallace, granddaughter Emmy, and grandson Campbell live in Houston.

Perhaps, and hopefully the last Mayor of Sugar Land to be an employee of a company that regularly does business with the City, whose major campaign contributors have always been Developers.
