Candidates for Lewisville Mayor - 2015

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2015/3/12 20:00:00 (924 reads)

Open in new windowBy Steve Southwell

With just a week remaining for candidates to file in City of Lewisville elections, each of the contests now have competing candidates. The offices of Mayor and Place 2 are up for election this year by schedule, and the remaining one year of the Place 5 Council seat is up for special election. The elections will be held on May 9th. For the city election, any runoff would be held on June 20th. Candidates have until 5 p.m. on February 27th to file for election or re-election.

The Mayor of Lewisville serves as the presiding officer of the City Council, voting only in the case of a tie. Mayor is also a ceremonial position, interfacing with the public at events, and representing the city. State and federal law also give the mayor of a city certain authority in times of a declared emergency.

Open in new windowCouncilman Rudy Durham
Rudy D. Durham, 58, has served in Place 5 since 1994. Before that, he served on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, and the Planning and Zoning Commission. He has served three times as Deputy Mayor Pro Tem and four times as Mayor Pro Tem for Lewisville.

Durham earns his living as a deputy chief appraiser for the Denton Central Appraisal District. He holds a Bachelors of Business Administration from North Texas State University (currently the University of North Texas). He lives in southern Lewisville and has lived in the city for 57 years.

Durham also serves on the Regional Transportation Council of the North Central Texas Council of Governments, and the Dallas Regional Mobility Council. He advocates stepping up the pace of city street and park projects, funded by additional G.O. Bonds. He is a conservative and sometimes contrarian voice on the City Council, who is widely seen as an advocate for the rights of property owners. He has also advocated for consistent budgeting, and keeping the salaries of city employees competitive even through the economic downturn. Durham has also said that he thinks the city will have to have a long-term plan to address water supply issues. Though he sometimes does disagree with the Council on some matters, he has not been one to beat a dead horse or try to undermine the accepted plan.

On the occasions that Durham has presided over the council in his role as Mayor Pro Tem, he has capably and efficiently led the meetings.

- Articles on The Lewisville Texan Journal about Rudy Durham

Open in new windowJohn Gorena
John D. Gorena, 52, served on the City Council in Place 4 from 2010 to 2013, when he was defeated by Greg Tierney. Prior to his council service, he did various volunteer work for the city, and served on the city’s transportation board.

Gorena currently earns his living as a project manager, but prior to that was an IT consultant, and had worked as a firefighter. He holds a Bachelors of Emergency Management and Planning, and serves as a Chief Warrant Officer 2 in the Texas State Guard. He lives with his wife Maria in southern Lewisville. He has lived in the city 28 years.

Gorena is a Republican and Tea Party activist, and was often at odds with other council members during his tenure, due to his framing of local issues through a strictly partisan filter. Gorena first ran on an anti-illegal immigrant platform, pushing the now-defunct 287(g) program, even after local and federal law enforcement agents recommended the CAP program that Lewisville currently utilizes. Gorena advocated the city take an activist position like Farmers Branch, which spent millions in legal fees defending its ultimately doomed program in federal court. At the end of his tenure, he advocated that the city abandon its program of financing capital improvements through bond issues - a position that neatly fit Tea Party anti-debt rhetoric, but that virtually no cities embrace.

Gorena seemed to have a hard time keeping up with the council, at times having to have things re-explained to him by city staff. In addition to sometimes taking nonsensical positions, Gorena would circle back over the same point in council discussions more than a couple of times, causing Mayor Ueckert to have to shut down the conversation to keep the meeting moving.

Eventually, our reporting on Gorena's gaffes, improprieties and impractical positions led to him refusing to speak to The Lewisville Texan Journal. We’ll be limited in our reporting to watching his public website and statements.

Although we have tried in recent years to take a more neutral and balanced stance on local elections, it’s fair to say this particular bridge is burned, and we have no need or desire to rebuild it. The idea of him serving as mayor after his terrible record is ludicrous enough. That he dissented from the rest of the council's support of the Vision 2025 process, and chose not to serve on that committee gives big pause in a year where the city is moving forward with that vision.

Open in new windowWinston Edmondson
Winston L. Edmondson, 37, is an innovation consultant making his third run for the office. Edmondson graduated from Lewisville High School, and holds a Bachelors in Political Science from the University of Texas at Dallas. Edmondson was the host of the “Innovation at Work” radio program that was on 660 AM in Dallas, and has also hosted on BizRadio 1310 AM and CNN Radio 1190 AM. He is a senior writer for Silicon Angle, an online news outlet that covers the intersection of computer science and social science.

Although Edmondson has not served on any city boards or commissions, he has served on Lewisville ISD’s Strategic Design Team for four years. The Strategic Design Team was a diverse set of community members and educators who in 2011 developed the district’s current plan that was adopted by the school board, and has guided the transformation of the district.

Edmondson sees himself working in the more public-facing ceremonial and advocacy-based roles that the mayor serves. “We have a very capable city staff,” said Edmondson, who thinks the day-to-day administrative tasks of running the Council meetings will be something he can catch onto with a little help. Edmondson wants to be “the people’s Mayor”. In prior campaigns, he envisioned innovative ways to connect people to their city government, as well as to the city’s small businesses. Edmondson had pitched the idea of doing videos with each and every business owner in the city to introduce and promote them.

In this campaign this year, Edmondson has not yet been public with many specific ideas, but told us Wednesday night that he was working on an idea to implement a city-owned fiber optic data network that would reach every household. He says the idea would bring data speeds 100 times faster than what is available today, and could either be run by the city as a utility, or could be leased out or opened up to competition. Lewisville currently has fiber service to most households via Verizon, but this market is slated for sale to Frontier Communications, which has been panned on internet message boards about their speeds and quality of service.

He first ran for mayor in 2009, losing to then Councilman Dean Ueckert, who became Mayor, and is serving his second term. Edmondson filed again in 2012, and pulled down 29% of the vote in that election. The Lewisville Texan Journal endorsed Ueckert in that race.

Edmondson lives in southern Lewisville and has four children who attend Flower Mound schools. He is interested in start-up businesses, innovation, big ideas, and “thinking outside the box”. He can frequently be found on Facebook, alternately stirring the pot with controversial political opinions and questions, or cracking people up with humorous observations of society.

Lewisville and Farmers Branch Reach Agreement on Camelot Landfill

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/3/11 8:44:40 (352 reads)

Open in new windowCity officials announced today that an agreement has been reached in a federal lawsuit alleging hazardous pollutants being released at Camelot Landfill. Under terms of the agreement, the landfill operator will take steps to mitigate and remove the suspected contamination that Lewisville officials believe threatened the North Texas water supply.

An Agreed Final Judgment was filed yesterday in the lawsuit, City of Lewisville v. City of Farmers Branch, et al (cause no. 4:12-CV-00782) pending in the Sherman Division of the federal District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

Under terms of the agreement, Camelot Landfill agreed to take action to stop the leakage of hazardous pollutants from the landfill into the adjacent groundwater that is directly connected to the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The defendants agreed to:

(1) Construct a slurry wall to block the movement of hazardous pollutants from the landfill, and

(2) Construct and operate a leachate removal system to collect liquids from within the landfill and deliver them to a treatment system.

Lewisville Wins Governor's Community Achievement Award; $290,000 for Beautification

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/3/10 21:49:39 (549 reads)

Open in new windowFolks, this is super-exciting news for Lewisville. Our city has won the highly-coveted, and highly-competitive Governor's Community Achievement Award, which recognizes the efforts of our city and its non-profit organizations like Keep Lewisville Beautiful in improving our community's environment.

The award comes not just with bragging rights, but with a sizable grant for landscaping along Texas highways in the city. The City will be able to work with the Texas Department of Transportation to determine locations. More about that in a moment, but first, I'm just going to post Keep Lewisville Beautiful's press release on the matter, since it covers the bases pretty well:

Lewisville, Texas – Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) has recognized Lewisville as one of 10 winners of the 2015 Governor’s Community Achievement Awards for outstanding community improvement. The award is one of the most coveted annual environmental and community improvement honors in Texas. The winners will share $2 million in landscape funding from the Texas Department of Transportation; Lewisville will receive $290,000 for a landscaping project along a local state right-of-way for population category 9 (90,001-180,000).

Communities from across the state submitted written summaries and supplemental materials documenting their efforts in supporting the mission of Keep Texas Beautiful, to “educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment”.

Winners were chosen for 10 population categories, based on their achievements in seven environmental and community improvement areas: community leadership and coordination, education, public awareness, litter prevention and cleanup, litter law and illegal dumping enforcement, beautification and community improvement, and solid waste management.

Lewisville’s application was prepared and submitted by Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB), a local 501c3 non-profit environmental organization, but this award honors the entire community and is truly an award for all of Lewisville to share and be proud of.

Earning this award demonstrates the Keep Lewisville Beautiful mission to “engage the citizens of Lewisville through service and education to enhance their community environment” and highlights environmental efforts community wide.

Water Main Break Affecting Parts of Lewisville

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/3/10 9:43:07 (240 reads)

This morning, there was a 16 inch diameter water main break near LL Woods Park that resulted in a water outage affecting the area surrounded by Kirkpatrick and Old Orchard, Valley Parkway, and College Street.

City of Lewisville Public Services Director Carole Bassinger said that initially, the problem affected the entire area, but by reconfiguring some valves, the city crews were able to restore service to most of the area. She expects repairs to be complete in about 2 hours - or about 11:30 a.m.

A Real Conversation About the Cost of Tax Cuts in Texas

Legislature is In Session; Run for your Lives!
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/3/10 7:53:02 (324 reads)
Legislature is In Session; Run for your Lives!

By Bret Wooten

I want to start off by saying I love this state and want to keep it strong for our kids. Additionally, this is not a political statement of any persuasion; these are facts. I'm a firm believer that Democrats and Republicans both have stupid ideas they do not pay for, and even dumber ones they do.

The Texas Legislature is in full swing and bills from the house and Senate are being discussed and debated. Tax cuts are one of the first issues discussed. Unfortunately, how these tax cuts would be paid for was not included in their plans. This includes the property and franchise tax cuts proposed by Sentator Jane Nelson (R, Flower Mound). These are the main source of funding for our education system. Two state courts have already deemed the current level of funding unconstitutional.

Texas is always in the bottom 8 for funding public schools, and is currently around 44th in spending, depending on whose statistics you look at. As the costs and burdens have increased, inflation-adjusted per pupil spending had actually decreased by $611 since the recession, according to the American Federation of Teachers.

The Texas Legislature clearly understands the value and ability of the public education system to execute their wishes. This is evident in the 82 currently unfunded mandates passed down to our school districts.

With all the challenges that Texas schools face, somehow our teachers get our kids to the middle of the pack on standardized test scores. So we reward them with great benefits and pay, Oh wait-- nope!!!
