To the Residents of Frisco:
With the election behind us and a lot of work ahead of us, I wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude for the faith and trust you have placed in me by reelecting me as your Mayor. It is a privilege and honor to continue to represent the greatest city in the country. I cannot think of a higher honor than the vote of public trust. By entrusting me to help lead our city, I promise you that I will put forth every effort to protect our citizens. While we face some difficult challenges, 2011 will also be a banner year for Frisco and you will see and read about many wins over the next few weeks for our community.
I also want to thank the many campaign volunteers who worked tirelessly to help spread the vision of Frisco. I am proud to be associated with so many good people who were all unified and dignified in keeping on the high road. We have some work to do to heal the divide caused by the negative campaign that was waged by my opponent, but Frisco is and has always been a positive town that can do anything. I know that I would not be in the position of helping Frisco continue the successes without so many who worked hard to get me here. I am truly blessed to have so many good friends and supporters.
The celebration of my reelection was short as we live in the fastest growing city in the country and there is so much to do. We do not have time to pause or relax and I hope I can count on you to be involved as we continue to grow! I will continue to work hard to increase the number of jobs in Frisco, improve our public safety and continue to build our infrastructure to meet the needs of our growing population. Having a safe environment from pollution is also a priority for me and I will continue working with our council in finding solutions to keep our families safe.
Frisco is also one city and we do not have a place for special interest groups or those that want to bring politics here for their own gain. The County you are in or the school district your children attend does not make any part of the community any less or more important than any other. We have come this far because we have been united in our vision and focused on what is good for the entire community. Using this approach, we have been able to accomplish more than any other city in this country.
During the election, I had the opportunity to meet many new residents of Frisco as well as visit with those that have been here a while. One of the common themes from everyone I spoke with was that they love living in Frisco. Frisco must continue to be on the leading edge sustainable thinking and planning. I will work hard with our council to keep Frisco vibrant.
I hope you will join me as we chart our future to the eventual build out of Frisco. Please continue to monitor my Facebook and twitter pages as well as my web site for up-to-date information about Frisco. I also encourage you to join me at my monthly “Coffee with the Mayor” so that I may continue to listen to your ideas and concerns. My door is always open to our citizens!
It is time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work. I am truly excited for our City and our future!
Thank You and God Bless Frisco
Mayor, City of Frisco
