The following info was sent by Councilman Forest:
“My family and I are originally from the Detroit, MI area and relocated to Flower Mound in March of 2000. We moved to Flower Mound to be closer to our extended family, for the great schools, and because it was an excellent up-and-coming area in the DFW Metroplex. My wife Carol and I raised our daughters here in town, both of whom graduated from FMHS. After their time away at college, they returned and settled here in Flower Mound, purchased a home, and continued working in the area. We are proud residents of Flower Mound and enjoy living, working, and volunteering in our community. Our town has grown exponentially over the years and I am proud to have worked hard and been involved in some of the tremendous accomplishments and successes achieved through the time I have served on both Planning and Zoning and Town Council.
“I am currently a partner at a general contracting firm here in Flower Mound with a primary business focus on commercial renovations and custom residential projects. I sincerely enjoy being involved in our community and constantly look forward to volunteering with local charities and organizations, especially with the Summit Club of Flower Mound at our annual events which include Western Saloon Night, Independence Fest, Keep Flower Mound Beautiful, FMPD and FMFD Open Houses, and Breakfast with Santa, to name just a few. I have always had a servant’s heart and I will constantly seek out opportunities to better the lives of my family and my fellow residents here in Flower Mound.”
