Personal Message
"I truly love Red Oak, Texas, and feel so very blessed to be elected once again to serve the citizens of this community. Red Oak has caring people, outstanding youth organizations, churches, and a business community that cares about the citizens. Red Oak has been blessed to have strong leadership for many years, and is the great place it is because of those who have served this community for so many years. These are exciting times as we grow from a small country town into a quality suburban city. I am proud to have worked for a school district that puts students first and gives our young people the most opportunity for success now and in the future. When asked would I recommend Red Oak to my closest family and friends, the answer is an overwhelming 'yes, come join us and be a part of something great in Red Oak, Texas.' I consider it an honor and a duty to serve in this city, and pray God's continued blessings on our citizens."
