"What I'm most proud of is the fact that our infrastructure improvements now make it possible to concentrate on the everyday things that make a city great. I have been especially pleased with our parks. We have one of the best park systems in Northeast Texas. A lot of time and money have gone into them--and it shows. I am also proud of the street program, community services, and the airport. The new loop project will be a big asset to the City as well. We're always planning for the future."
