THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT.
WIN OR LOSE – THANK YOU.
For now, I am out picking up signs.
See my Issues & Status report
for a few of the many important topics that I have tried to get
accomplished in my time on the Council. Keep in mind that I am
one of six members on the City Council and I need your help by voting
for me and others that think conservatively like I do - otherwise
these important issues will never get passed or corrected.
Please see the
Introduction Letter for my campaign.
Questions & Answers, and
Media - Here you will find the list of questionnaires and
any current stories in the media.
A Brief History -
In May 2009, I ran for an unexpired term for place 4. I received the
most votes in the City Election (44%) but not quite enough to have
more than half and was forced into a Runoff. A month later, in June
2009, I won the Runoff Election. Then in 2010, I ran for a full 3 year
term and won the election. There is an election every year in
May for two of the six positions on the City Council. I am up
for Re-election on May 11, 2013.
Over the years that I have lived in Lewisville (since 1987), I am
Lewisville citizens, I read the local news papers and I am
concerned about the direction of Country and our City of Lewisville.
It is time that conservatives step up and be active in the decisions
that affect our daily lives. I encourage you to get involved:
speak up, vote for those that actually share your values, run for
office so that you can be counted as a conservative voice.
I continue to devote myself to looking out for our City.
It is my hope that you will share my
excitement and optimism for the future of Lewisville.
Please join me and get involved in the community.
How can you get involved? Attend the City Council
Meetings and review the agenda before the meeting - Speak during
the Visitors/Citizens Forum at the meeting on topics that you
would like addressed.
Since my first meeting (July 6, 2009) as a Lewisville City Council
Member. I have done my best to address the issues that I told the
voters that I would do. You can see these top issues on my
Issues & Status Report page and I
will continue to support these important issues along with all the
others. To read more about

I will not mislead you
nor will I speak for my opponent - His position on the issues are a matter
of public record and it is up to you to know the truth. There
is a distinct difference again between myself and my opponent as he
has been on the opposite side of the
Issues listed in my
platform. I ask that you contact me
directly to answer any questions that you might have concerning my
position on the Issues. I choose
to serve standing firm on my values and not on my knees groveling for votes. Many
answers to questions that I am
asked are on my website already but I would like to hear from you
anyway. Please feel free to call me at 972-315-0496.
Why City Council?
The main reason I ran for City Council was because I could not find someone to run
with my same values - someone who truly represents me. I did not run
‘just because’ or ‘I want the position title’ or 'to work on
backroom deals for profit or gain'. I am concerned about the
future of Lewisville. I admit that there are
issues and other
problems in this City that got me started on this path. I
also ran because
there was a need for someone to stand up for Christian Conservative
values, American Patriotism, and the Rule of Law. I will not deviate from my
core values for political expediency.
As stated above, I created an
Issues & Status report page about some of the items that are important.
Please keep in mind that everything is important and I consider
every issue very carefully. You will notice that many were not
passed as I was the only person on the council that wanted to pursue
these topics. They will not come to pass until there are others on
the City Council that want to do these things also. Each year
two places are elected at large (no districts - city wide) for a
three year term. Therefore it is very important that you vote in the
yearly city elections. Again, I cannot do this alone and I need you
to elect fellow conservatives on to the City Council to help.
