If you have lived in other parts of North Texas, I am sure that you appreciate how blessed we are to live in such an incredible city. Whether it’s the 4,000 acres of beautiful parks or the fact that we’re consistently ranked one of the safest cities in America to live in, there is so much to love about living in Plano.
As a child growing up here I enjoyed spending afternoons feeding the ducks at Big Lake, attending church picnics at Bob Woodruff Park and cooling off on hot summer days at Jack Carter Pool. So when it came came time for my husband and I to purchase our first home and start our family, the decision was easy; we loved Plano too much to go anywhere else.
Becoming a parent has helped fuel my passion to make sure that the next generation of Plano citizens can grow up in a vibrant, family oriented community that is a great place to call home and provides meaningful career opportunities.
As a Plano ISD parent and graduate, I have a vested interest in both our city and our school district achieving long-term success. I will always remember Mrs. Cooper, one of my third grade teachers at Mathews Elementary. She was the first teacher to tell me that I was a good writer. She encouraged me to continue writing, and writing has been a part of my life ever since. Because of the significance education plays in the future of our children, I will be vigilant about encouraging collaboration between the city and the school district to help ensure that both entities are able to provide the highest level of service to all of our citizens.
This is our home. This is our future. I ask for your vote so we can work together to ensure our home, Plano, continues to be a vibrant and attractive place to live, work and raise a family, for many years to come.
