Frisco Mayor Maher Maso announced that Del Harris has signed on to be campaign treasurer in his upcoming bid for re-election as mayor of Frisco. Harris, currently GM of the Texas Legends basketball team and color commentator for the Dallas Mavericks on the Fox Sports Spanish network, has had a distinguished coaching career, including serving as head coach for the NBA’s Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Los Angeles Lakers, before coming to the Dallas Mavericks as an assistant coach and consultant. He is an active member of the Frisco community and works frequently with many local charitable organizations, including the Del and Ann Harris Foundation, which Harris started with his wife to promote Christian principles.
“It is an honor and a privilege to have Del as my campaign treasurer,” said Mayor Maso. “I have the utmost respect for what Del has accomplished in his career, but even more respect for him as an individual. He is a good man, husband, father and friend and truly cares about Frisco. He always makes himself available to help out in the community and shares the conservative values and pro-business attitude that has made our city second to none. He is a valuable asset to my campaign and to the city of Frisco.”
“I was not simply pleased when asked to serve as Mayor Maso’s treasurer, I was honored,” said Harris. “He has no other agenda than to serve the city of Frisco. He has a proven record of success and is a tireless, aggressive and forward-thinking leader. Being mayor of the fastest growing city in America is not a job for a rookie. We must continue with a proven winner. I am proud to serve and support Maher Maso in his bid for re-election as the mayor of Frisco.”
The city election will be held on May 14, 2011.
