Friends and Neighbors,
It is my pleasure and honor to have served on the Denton City Council representing District 3 for the past four years. Our city has made great strides over the course of that time despite a troubling economy that created challenges for everyone. Denton has grown the population, the tax base, and sales tax collections, while reducing the unemployment rate and increasing the level of service delivered to the community. I am asking you to help continue my service by re-electing me to a third and final term on the Denton City Council.
I promised in previous campaigns that my guiding principle would be the prudent management of resources while balancing the delivery of services for a diverse array of constituent needs. I point to this partial list of accomplishments in our city over the last four years:
This election is about how to continue to move Denton ahead. Going forward we need to update our vision (and our development code), continue to grow our tax base, foster further citizen engagement, and continue to craft a frugal budget to meet the municipal service needs of a growing and diverse citizenry of college students, young professionals, families, and retirees. I further believe that my track record on the City Council, the Planning & Zoning Commission, and my long term volunteer activities demonstrate my level of commitment to our community. From this perspective, I humbly seek your help and support in this campaign. Thank you in advance for any assistance you provide.
