Why I’m Running For Fort Worth City Council District 9
I have been a Resident of Fort Worth for over 20 years. I have lived in the Bluebonnet Hills neighborhood which is located on the Southeast side of TCU since 1992. I have been very active in my neighborhood association of Bluebonnet Hills as the newsletter editor, coordinating social events, and assisting the board over many years. Our association, after a number of years of inactivity, has recently been revitalized and I participated, with a dedicated group of fellow residents, to make that happen.
I served on the Zoning Commission for 6 years originally appointed by Mayor Moncrief and then reappointed by Mayor Price. I chaired this commission for my last year of service. During this 6 years of service I had the benefit of interacting with numerous neighborhood associations as well as individual residents across the city and have been dedicated to neighborhood association involvement and public participation overall.
I am a passionate supporter of neighborhoods across District 9, attending events and enthusiastically encouraging others to attend. Some of my favorite include; Open Street, Pop Up and Farmers Markets, Better Block, Main Streets Arts Festival, May Fest and Historic Home Tours. I assisted Steer Fort Worth Urban Development in neighborhood coordination for Better Block Bluebonnet Circle.
The main thing that qualifies me to serve on the City Council is my strong record of public service at the neighborhood and local government level. I am an AICP (American Institute of Certified Planners) certified planner since 1992. I have a Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning from University of Texas at Arlington and a BA in Environmental Studies, Policy and Planning from University of California, Santa Cruz.
Why do I want to serve on the City Council and what are my priorities?
- Work to protect, maintain and improve strong safe neighborhoods in District 9.
- Encourage residents to be actively involved in their neighborhoods, the district and the entire City.
- Ensure the continued level of excellence demonstrated by my predecessors.
- Encourage public input and listen to and consider different viewpoints and alternative solutions.
- Respond to the public and make thoughtful reasoned decisions.
- Assist residents in learning about and accessing the services and opportunities available to them.
I realize the time and dedication it will take to be the Councilwoman for District 9, a vibrant and active district. I have visited with several past District 9 representatives and I am well aware and prepared to fulfill the full time commitment this job will require.
