Dixon: Vote for respectful leadership

Steve Dixon

On Election Day in May none of the four Flower Mound mayoral candidates on the ballot received the required votes to win, so the race for mayor continues. Just a few votes separated the top two candidates and it proves once again that every vote counts in Flower Mound elections.

During campaign season in Flower Mound social media (Facebook group pages) gets ugly and personal. I do not like the “weaponization” of Facebook (citizen vs. citizen) and my preference is for everyone to be courteous and polite when talking in person or commenting on social media.

We as Flower Mound resident have more things that unite us than divide us. Do I want more apartments? NO. Do I want less traffic? YES. Do I want people to be neighborly? HECK YES!

If I am elected the next mayor, I will work with everyone on council and residents to have respectful conversations on each and every topic. Showing respect to others helps foster efficient working conditions in business, life and volunteer service to the Town.

During this runoff election I would like to see everyone communicate with respect. The Golden Rule is not old fashioned, just the way to show it has changed a little.

Early voting runs June 4-12. Election Day is June 16.
