March is upon us, spring is just around the corner, and the students of Argyle ISD have been busy. We have a talented group of young people in our town who deserve a shout out.
I want to congratulate the Lady Eagles Basketball team for securing the regional title and advancing to State as well as Heath Roth for winning his second State Championship for Wrestling. Thank you to all who support our local athletes.
I would like to thank everyone who chose to submit a packet for the two council positions that are open for election this May. While it might sound energizing at first to think about running for a council position, when you sit down and consider the commitment it takes, it sometimes feels more of a daunting decision.
Seven people requested packets; five submitted them to Town Hall. I can assure this is no easy task for which they have signed up. I have told people it is kind of like a dog chasing a car, what does he do with it after he catches it?! So, when you meet these candidates, be sure to tell them how much you appreciate their service to the community. The incumbents seeking re-election are myself, Ronald Schmidt, Council Place 2 and Cindy Hermann, Council Place 4.
We need everyone to come to the polls and vote not only for these positions but for the School Board as well.
Just as a reminder, I will be at Town Hall on the first Saturday of every month at 9 a.m. for “Mornings with the Mayor” This is a time for citizens to get to know me as well as talk about any issues that may be on your mind. I always try to have a topic in mind for the day but that is not set in stone. Please come out and join me for some inspiring conversation, coffee and donuts.
As always, we are committed to serving the citizens of Argyle with the utmost Integrity and Transparency. My philosophy is to serve for the Common Good with a Common Goal with Common Sense.
