The Campaign Kicks Off
January 23, 2021
I have proudly served the City of Burleson for almost 30 years and with that I bring experience and passion that will continue to bring success to the city. I am seeking another term not for any personal benefit, but on the basis of the issues currently impacting the Burleson community. It is important now, more than ever, to elect those who will put citizens first, stand up for what is right and uproot the divisiveness that is currently plaguing our community.
Much to be discussed during this election season and I look forward to continuing my service to the people of Burleson.
