Experience

My husband Patrick and I have lived in Grapevine for over 30 years and raised our family here. Our children and grandchildren have attended GCISD public schools. I have owned businesses in Grapevine, am a long-time community volunteer and I have served on multiple city, church and civic boards and committees. My experience in all of these areas are critical to be successful as a member of the City Council. I have made positive contributions to the decisions that have been made regarding business development, economic and financial stability and increased services to the people who call Grapevine home. I love Grapevine and want to continue to help in keeping Grapevine Great for future generations.

Experience does matter.

For the past three years it has been my honor to serve the citizens of Grapevine as a member of the City Council. I have worked very hard to make Grapevine an even greater place to live, work and play. As a council we have accomplished some amazing things, among them consistently lowering our property tax rate (16% since 2014). Last year alone, we reduced it by 12% to one of the lowest city tax rates in the state of Texas. We have a well-planned and conservative financial strategy which allows the City to provide our citizens with outstanding services, make sound investments in our infrastructure and still continue to keep city taxes low. That’s not the case in every city and I’m very proud of that. I believe the business experience and value I bring to the Grapevine City Council has made a difference and I want to continue to serve the citizens and add value to the decisions that will mold and shape our City for years to come.

Vision

Grapevine has a bright future with continued growth and profitability through a well thought out strategic plan, solid economic development and a strong focus on maintaining a quality of life unmatched in any city. That takes hard work, dedication and commitment to our city and our citizens and is my goal and promise to you.

What do I want to work on as your City Councilwoman?


Our Council has been actively engaged in bringing economic development projects to Grapevine totaling over $632 million in new and expanded investments during my tenure. Bringing these projects to fruition as well as finalizing plans for a new train station, hotel and revitalized train district is a high priority as well as the final development of the 185 acre tract of land adjacent to Grapevine Mills Mall. I also want to continue seeking projects that improve the quality of life for our citizens and visitors.
