A former Flower Mound Town Council member has filed to run again, eight years after his previous term ended.
Mike Wallace served on Town Council in Place 3 from 2009-11, and Wednesday he announced that he is running to succeed outgoing Councilmember Kevin Bryant, who is term-limited. Wallace has also served four years on the Planning and Zoning Commission, two years as Vice Chair.
Wallace’s priorities are to preserve SMARTGrowth and the Master Plan, implement an Environmental Sustainability Plan, keep property taxes low and support Flower Mound’s police officers and firefighters.
“Flower Mound is a special place and we need to protect the unique character of our town,” Wallace said in a statement. “The quality of life we enjoy in Flower Mound did not happen by accident. Our town’s Master Plan and SMARTGrowth program have ensured steady growth over the years while providing the high-quality infrastructure and services our residents deserve.”
Wallace’s community involvement includes service on Town Council, the Planning and Zoning Commission, SMARTGrowth Commission, Economic Development Advisory Committee, and the Master Plan Update Steering Committee. He also participated in the Flower Mound Citizen Police Academy and was a member of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
Wallace graduated from the University of North Texas and has been a global technology manager in the Dallas area for over 20 years. He and his wife Amy have been married since 1997. They, along with their daughter Bailey and dog Brody, have lived in Flower Mound since 2004.
Filing for all local elections began Wednesday, and the deadline to file is Feb. 15. Election Day is May 4.
