I think one of the reasons that I had been encouraged to run for mayor this year, was that the people who know me best, know the passion that I share with my mother for the natural beauty of our town. We have spent years, speaking up for the unusual and ancient trees that this town was blessed with.
I feel like we, as a town, are stewards over our part of the Cross Timbers forest. While I rejoice in the success of our town and welcome every new business and new resident, I am saddened at some of the recent losses of this forest for the profit of a few. I recognize that we, as a town, have been poor stewards of our Cross Timbers and the ancient Post Oaks can never be replaced. We can do better. With your help, I would like to serve Flower Mound better.
I know what it is like to be a resident and that is why my first priority is to put residents first. I will work for you. I will see that you are protected. I will try to change the culture that lets developers run over the Flower Mound citizens.
