"After a lot of consideration, I have decided to throw my hat in the ring for City Council at Large in the City of McKinney. McKinney is a great place to live and work. I have been blessed by being here, and I fully subscribe to the sentiment that we should Learn, Earn and Return. In serving on the Council I hope to continue being a contributing member of our community. I thank you in advance for your support and your vote."
