Farmers Branch deserves elected officials who know and understand the meaning of ACCOUNTABILITY, INTEGRITY, PUBLIC SERVICE, RESPONSIBILITY.
Your elected officials should be willing to take time to meet with you, return your phone calls and/or emails, and be responsive to your concerns.
Residents should ALWAYS be treated with COURTESY and RESPECT, no matter what their political views. We all live here and share the same ideal of making our city a better place to live, work and play.
I am asking for the help of each Farmers Branch resident to support my campaign. With your support, I will work with the City Council to take care of needed infrastructure and public safety needs first and ensure that the business of the City is conducted openly, efficiently and transparently.
