Election time during a pandemic looks very different than other years. First, we are voting in November instead of May on a ballot with the President and federal, state and county governments. We are at the very, very end of the ballot so it will take time and patience to find your local candidates along with a very important Proposition A. This is a renewal of the Crime Control and Prevention District ¼ cent sales tax that was originally approved in 1995 and is up for renewal.
Thank you for your support of my service for the past 16 years. It was such an honor to be elected to the City Council in 2004 and continued to serve until 2014. At that time our long time delightful Mayor Mary Lib Saleh decided to retire. In 2013 I was re-elected to my Council seat but our Charter dictated I resign my seat if I wished to run for Mayor. My second term as Mayor has come to an end and I sincerely hope that you will decide to honor me with a third term.
With a great Council and innovative, visionary City Staff we are on a great path of managed growth. It would be a privilege to continue working towards our end goal of making Euless even more Fab-Euless!
I humbly ask that you choose me again on November 3rd. Early voting begins on October 13th.
