This year, there’s an open seat on the Highland Village City Council and three residents are campaigning for it. The candidates for the Place 4 seat are Barbara Fleming, Richard Rega, and Dan Jaworski.
Mr. Jaworski came over for an interview recently and it’s been posted here.
Mr. Rega has been invited for an interview which will take place soon.
I also had the pleasure of doing a video interview with Barbara Fleming and it accompanies this article. The following information comes from her campaign literature.
Ms. Fleming was born in Midland Texas, attended Midland High School and Sul Ross University in Alpine, Texas. She’s married to Jim Fleming, a retired Deputy Chief of the Mesquite Fire Department.
