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.

Roger Harris running At-Large in McKinney

Roger Harris will run for the city’s council at-large seat in the May 14 elections, bringing his years of business experience and civic involvement to the campaign.
Harris operates Metro Linen Service in McKinney, which was honored with the McKinney Business of the Year award in 2010. He also served on and chaired the McKinney Airport Board, now known as the Collin County Regional Airport, for six years.
Harris has lived in McKinney for 19 years with his wife, Jan, and three children, Allison, Steven and John. He has owned and operated a business in McKinney for twenty-four years.
“I am uniquely qualified to represent my McKinney neighbor at-large due to the fact that I have raised my family in McKinney, my office is located in downtown McKinney and Metro Linen’s facility is located on Industrial Blvd.,” Harris said.
Especially due to the recent national economic downturn, Harris understands that the city of McKinney needs to be postured for well-planned, controlled growth as the country returns to prosperous advancements.
“McKinney needs commercial tax base creation, land use planning and needs the 75/121 entrance to McKinney project, known as ‘Gateway’, developed and established,” Harris said.
And Harris has the strategic business experience to launch these preparations.
Harris currently serves on several boards, including the Board of Directors for the McKinney Chamber of Commerce, the North Central Texas Workforce Development Board and the board for McKinney Economic Development Corporation.
His other priorities for McKinney include increased city government efficiency and making McKinney fiscally responsible to assure effective use of taxes and minimize the likelihood of tax increases.
Harris said that McKinney must actively pursue commercial tax-base creation in order to provide tax revenues that will offset the possibility of tax increases.
“It is important that we are always working to improve the quality of life for all McKinney families,” Harris said. “Creating commercial tax-base will help to do that.”
McKinney’s slogan, ‘Unique by Nature’ is true in many areas, Harris said.
“McKinney is unique in aviation. Sponsoring the Collin County Regional Airport allows the city to benefit from owning a major transportation asset.”
Harris said that through his years of involvement with municipal airports, specifically the McKinney airport, he recognizes that investing in the airport will contribute more and more to the city budget.
Along with chairing the McKinney Airport Board for many years, Harris also served on the Addison Airport Board during its rapid growth period as an airport for more than five years, which provided viable economic growth.
“The time to plan our development in and around the airport is now,” Harris said.
Previous councils have made commitments to improve streets and infrastructure throughout McKinney.
Harris said that he will continue to pursue the revitalization of areas of McKinney to enhance safety and make the birthplace of McKinney’s heritage an increasingly safe place for families to live, play and build a business.
“I understand our demographics, our people and the opportunities we enjoy together,” Harris said. “I would be honored to continue to work and develop this city that has helped develop myself and my family.”
