Hilton endorses Harris in McKinney

Former At Large Candidate Hilton Endorses Harris In Runoff Election | Town Square Buzz

Town Square Buzz is reporting that former McKinney At Large candidate Matt Hilton endorses Roger Harris for McKinney City Council At Large in the runoff election set for June 18, 2011.

“Roger and I share common values, objectives and vision for our city,” Hilton said. “I know Roger has the experience and qualifications needed to improve our quality of life and enact development initiatives.”

Hilton was vying for the At Large position along with four other candidates until Election Day, May 14th, when it was announced that Harris and Steve Bell are in a runoff election for the At-Large position.

Hilton received 20 percent of the vote, while Harris and Bell received 36 percent.

Hilton is asking his supporters and McKinney citizens to support Harris for the At Large position.

“Roger is an independent thinker who stands firm in his convictions. I know Roger will represent all McKinney citizens and will make a great councilman.”

Harris said he is honored to receive Hilton’s endorsement.

“Hilton is a great man who shares my genuine concern for the city. We are aligned in many areas and are both passionate about making McKinney a better city,” Harris said.

Harris and Hilton said it is now more important than ever that McKinney citizens cast their votes in the runoff election. “The future of our city is in your hands. Mark your calendars and go vote,” Hilton said.

Early voting begins June 6th and Election Day is June 18th.

Letters: Rath can get job done

Letters to the Editor

By Gigi Bonham
In the three years I have known Tracy, I have been so impressed by not only her character, compassion, and fantastic work ethic, but by her knowledge of city issues that affect residents in McKinney.

We met volunteering in the community and I discovered immediately that she is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and do the work! I love her energy, her tenacity, her dedication, and her desire to help McKinney develop into a city that works for everyone. Tracy truly cares about what she is doing and her concern is genuine. How refreshing is that?! She has earned the respect of those with whom she has worked and volunteered and her track record on numerous boards and foundations in McKinney demonstrates that she can get the job done.

We need someone like Tracy on Council — someone who does her homework, is not afraid to speak up and fight for what we need, and stay focused on constructive solutions that bring consensus and progress. I am so honored support Tracy Rath in the City Council District 2 race.

Gigi Bonham
Executive Director

I would like to offer my support to Tracy Rath for City Council District 2.
Tracy is a doer who never looks for recognition and prefers to work behind the scenes. I personally have witnessed her strong leadership skills and get-your-hands-dirty attitude. She can bring a team together, always completes her task in a timely manner, and within budget.

Tracy is the first to step up and volunteer and can be found every year on a
Relay for Life team, pounding the pavement looking for donations, installing
drywall, picking up trash at the SRLA yard sale, working on events for the Crape Myrtle Trails, participating on the Believe! committee, serving dinner at Samaritan Inn, or emceeing one of many community events. While some may belittle her volunteerism, McKinney is at a critical crossroad and needs doers who have integrity and unquestionable motives.

Tracy Rath is who we need on our City Council. She is an open and transparent rules follower whose vast knowledge about McKinney, its citizens, and how it functions is invaluable. Please vote for Tracy Rath on May 14th.

Warm Regards,
Wendy Shelley
Community Volunteer

Letter: Former mayor supports Rath

In support of Tracy Rath for McKinney City Council
By Bill Whitfield

When I took office as Mayor of McKinney in 2003, one of the first challenges needing to be addressed was the fate of the old courthouse on the Downtown Square. The courthouse had been officially declared a historic building, so leveling it was out of the question. But it was an eyesore in the middle of our historic Downtown Square–empty and idle for 28 years—not a pretty sight.

The City Council—after study after study—discussed restoring it for use as office space. I believed it deserved a higher calling and was convinced that a performing art center could change the dynamics of downtown McKinney.

Tracy Rath was one of the women who led the effort to restore the historic courthouse—and convert it into a performing art center. The Council voted to fund the project in 2004, and Tracy volunteered to work with the contractor. When the City needed a liaison to work on a fulltime basis during the construction, Tracy was the obvious choice. She was hired as Facilities Manager, and she did a terrific job.

Our historic Downtown Square quickly became a meeting place. Before the McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC) existed, you could roll up the sidewalks every day at 5:00 when the shops closed. After its premiere? Well, we had another problem … finding a parking spot on the square … any night of the week.

My point? This letter is not about a building or our Downtown Square or our decisions—good or bad. It is about how much difference one person…like Tracy…can make. She’s running for City Council, and she has my vote…not because she’s a nice person (which she is), not because we’ve always agreed on every issue (which we haven’t). I’m voting for Tracy Rath because she is the best choice for our Council, and McKinney deserves the very best.

Bill Whitfield is the former Mayor of McKinney.

Letter: Vote for Maso in Frisco

Letter by Del Harris

In my fifty-plus years of coaching basketball, thirty-five in the NBA, I have had the rare opportunity to have been in 49 of our states and more than half that many foreign countries. I have spent considerable time in every major geographical area of our country. Now that we can live anywhere in the world that we choose, we have chosen Frisco, Texas. When we moved here in 2000 there were less than 35,000 residents, but the folks here had the vision to invest about $500 million in bond money between the late 90s and 2005 to be able to facilitate what Frisco has become today. It is a fact that we have bragging rights for being rated among the best cities of 100,000 plus residents both state and nation-wide in nearly every category, including tax rate, infrastructure, safety and other essential elements of a world class city. Quite honestly, I had NEVER encountered anyone here who is critical of what we have here or less than thrilled to be a part of what we have built here–not until this bogus campaign of Chicago-style politics that is being run against Mayor Maso; one that is filled with personal agenda and stats that are turned to sound effective but in reality that speak half-truths.

Maso is a genuine public servant who has been involved as a part of the great leadership here for much of the past decade that has seen our population quadruple. But because of the vision of our leaders in that time, we have been able to keep pace with the infrastructure, to have the best schools in the area, increased jobs even in the recent downturn, 4th safest city in the US due to great police and fire depts. and wonderful facilities for youth, elderly, sports enthusiasts and on ad infinitum. This has been done while keeping taxes down to near the lowest level in the area. And the only debt we have is a result of expenses that the people voted for—i.e. taxation WITH representation, as it ought to be. This is what true conservatism is: keep government small, keep spending down, and answer to the will of the people. When the people vote to go into debt for items or services they deem necessary or highly desirable, it is up to that government to spend that money wisely, but in line with the voter’s wishes. Frisco does that. It is not a bridges to nowhere citizenry or government.

I hope that those who have not lived here as long, or are just passing through, can vote for the type of folks for mayor, council and school board who had the vision these past several years to keep our city ahead of track due to great planning. This is the critical need for a city that is projected to double in population in the next 20 years or so. To do otherwise is to go backwards. For that to happen we need to rer-elect the man with a positive approach to that vision instead of an outlook of hesitation, doubt and fear. Being mayor of a city of 120,000 is a full time job and that is what Maso gives it. It is not a start-up, part-time position, but one that requires positive public service experience. It is important to keep the same kind of leadership that has moved Frisco to the position it now enjoys. No going backward! Vote for Maso.

Del Harris, Frisco

Letters to the Editor: Vote for Rath

I am supporting Tracy Rath in the race for McKinney City Council, District 2. One of Tracy’s greatest assets is the experience she has gained by working with people and on projects in McKinney. As a result, she has a deep understanding of the challenges we face as a city, and the concerns of the citizens. She is the rare combination of an enthusiastic team player and an excellent leader.

As part of a team, I’ve observed her listen to all points of view and help that group reach consensus. As a leader, I’ve observed her make tough decisions and deal with the consequences. A strong proponent of open and public discussion, Tracy knows that the democratic process is a messy, yet necessary, one. She doesn’t take short cuts—and refuses to give in to special interests.

She is an excellent listener and communicator. While Tracy can speak to and about most issues effectively, she is the unique leader who understands that listening and learning is often more important in reaching a good decision. If she doesn’t have the facts, she will say so upfront and work hard to search them out. She always does her homework, comes prepared, and asks questions.

Tracy’s leadership style is sorely needed on our council.

Please join me in voting for Tracy Rath for McKinney City Council, District 2.

Sincerely,

Sherry Tucker David

Plano’s Place 3 race developing

Cathy Fang – Candidate for Plano City Council Place 3
Contact Information:
http://www.cathyfang.com
cathy@cathyfang.com
972-754-6564
Background: 1. Education
2. Real world job experience
3. Courage to make no nonsense decisions
4. Integrity
5. Worldwide vision
6. Conservative values
7. Strong work ethic
Finances: The City of Plano should weather the
economic downturn by bringing new businesses to
Plano through economic development, being
proactive with public safety by creating safer
neighborhoods and creating efficiencies in the
current budget by being fiscally conservative. This
increases property values and sales tax revenues.
Retirement: Any pension plan changes should
happen with new hires.
Tax Rate: I will not vote to raise taxes under any
circumstance. I have signed a tax pledge to show
the Plano taxpayers my commitment to them.
Development: Plano cannot afford to continue to
lose businesses to surrounding cities. A stable
economy is needed to become competitive again.
We must revitalize aging and established shopping
centers not just in East Plano or Central Plano but
across the city. We must concentrate on
investments along Highway 75 corridor to
repurpose aging and unused commercial property.
Plano leadership must make economic
development investments to jumpstart the
Technology Park in East Plano with high tech and
manufacturing companies to provide more jobs. It
is important to entice investors locally, nationally
and internationally to increase commercial
development along the George Bush Tollway.
Homelessness: On the Plano City Council I will
work with existing organizations and other religious
groups to help those Plano citizens in need.
Other Issues: 1. The current $9 million dollar
deficit and increasing deficits for the next three
years – the City of Plano should address this issue
by bringing new businesses to Plano through
economic development, being proactive with public
safety by creating safer neighborhoods and
creating efficiencies in the current budget by being
fiscally conservative. This increases property
values and sales tax revenues. 2. Increasing
property tax – I will not vote to raise taxes under
any circumstance. I have signed a tax pledge to
show the Plano taxpayers my commitment to them.

André Davidson – Candidate for Plano City Council Place 3
Contact Information:
http://www.andredavidson.com
andre@andredavidson.com
214-914-5992
Background: As a city
councilmember, former
Leadership Plano Executive
Director, and graduate of the
Plano Citizens Police and Fire
Academies, I have knowledge and understanding
of city operations and programs and experience
addressing issues impacting citizens. During the
past 30 years, I have held numerous leadership
positions including chair of the Mayor’s Community
Outreach Task Force, Volunteer Center of Collin
County, PISD Education Foundation, and Plano
Youth Leadership. Each role required strategic
planning, budget preparation, fiscal responsibility,
ethics, and visionary leadership. In 2005, I was
recognized as Plano’s Citizen of the Year for my
years of community service and leadership.
Finances: Balancing the city’s budget requires a
balanced approach that includes continuing to look
for operational efficiencies to cut expenses, while
exploring increased revenue sources. Core
services and public safety must remain a priority
along with maintenance of our city’s aging
infrastructure. To do this, my focus will be to
advance a well-defined economic development
strategy, encompassing recruitment of new
businesses, redevelopment of aging and vacant
commercial properties, and revitalization of older
neighborhoods. These efforts will not only increase
our property tax base, but will generate jobs, attract
new home buyers to Plano, and augment sales tax
revenues.
Retirement: A representative from the Texas
Municipal Retirement System, which is the
retirement benefits provider for Plano and
numerous other municipalities in Texas, recently
presented city council an in-depth review of the
city’s retirement plan structure and funding. Based
on accepted actuarial assumptions, Plano’s current
employee benefits package is appropriate and the
city’s benefits program is well funded. Legislation
that is currently being considered in the state
legislature may impact municipal retirement plans
and warrant further review of the city’s retirement
benefit programs.
Tax Rate: To balance our city’s budget I support a
continued effort to look for greater operational
efficiencies while exploring new revenue sources
through aggressive business recruitment,
redevelopment initiatives of commercial and
opportunities. All options, including a tax increase,
merit consideration if the city’s ability to provide
core services, keep the public safe, and maintain
and repair our city’s aging infrastructure are in
jeopardy and the quality of life our citizens expect is
threatened.
Development: The economic development
challenges facing Plano include: competition from
neighboring cities with greater economic
development funding for business recruitment;
limited land available for development; and zoning
restrictions that limit redevelopment options. To
address these challenges, I support continuing an
aggressive economic development strategy using
Plano’s Economic Development Fund for incentives
and Chapter 380 grants to attract new and
expanding businesses. I also support a welldefined
strategy to build public/private partnerships
that bolster redevelopment of aging commercial
and residential properties, collaborative meetings
with stakeholders to update Plano’s
Comprehensive Plan, and review of zoning
ordinances in areas of potential redevelopment.
Homelessness: In the current economy, it is
critical that cities encourage collaborative efforts
among nonprofit agencies, religious institutions,
service organizations, and area businesses to
address homelessness in the community. I support
providing funds available through the city’s
Community Development Block Grants and
Buffington Grants to agencies such as the
Samaritan Inn, City House, and Habitat for
Humanity that provide housing for children and
families without homes. I also support the council’s
recent decision to request additional information
and reconsider a proposal for “Temporary
Accessory Housing Shelter” provided by religious
groups as a means to address homelessness in the
community.
Other Issues: The most important issues facing
council in the next few years are balancing the city
budget, maintaining the city’s aging infrastructure,
and revitalizing older neighborhoods. Balancing the
budget will require a balanced approach of
reducing expenses and increasing revenues
through operational efficiencies and revenue
enhancement opportunities. Besides continuing an
aggressive economic development strategy, I
support a well-defined redevelopment plan for
vacant commercial properties and expansion of the
“Love Where You Live” initiative in aging
neighborhoods. This will raise property values,
generate jobs, attract new residents, and, thereby,
produce additional tax revenues to insure
infrastructure maintenance and core services.
