making; crisis management; community outreach

Two terms on Southlake Zoning Board of Adjustment; banking, business and enterprise technology experience I have lived in Southlake for over 27 years. As an entrepreneur, I have the passion, energy and time to give back to the city that has shaped me into the woman I am today. I want to preserve and protect the Southlake way of life, by working to lower property taxes, pre- serve lower density single family homes, say no to apartments, reduce traffic, and maintain parks and open spaces.

It is a tremendous opportunity for me to be able to serve our city and its residents in an even greater capacity. I care about the past, present and future of Southlake and want to play an important role in the shaping of our city’s future. Being a 25-year resident, I am committed to preserving all that makes South- lake such a unique and special place to live.

I have an opportunity to give back to my city and country after being shot in the line of duty. My three priorities as a City Councilman are: The safety and security of our citizens and their property, especially in our schools; lowering property taxes with a balanced budget, and protecting our citizens from the development of apartments or any form of multi-family housing.
