Thank you. As a group of business leaders, elected officials, and local residents we’d like to give our sincere gratitude for your initial support on this initiative.
To recap: After speaking with Commissioner Mitchell and with her consent, Lewisville Councilman TJ Gilmore and friends have put together this committee to ensure our community has someone ready to continue Commissioner Mitchell’s track record on infrastructure, low taxes, safe communities and high quality of life should she choose to retire from the Commissioners Court in 2020. Councilman Gilmore has zero intentions of running against Commissioner Mitchell and she has his complete support in whatever she chooses to do.
The following local leaders have expressed their support for TJ Gilmore to date, with many more in discussion from all of the communities represented by Commissioner Precinct 3:
Mayors: Michael Barnhart (Lake Dallas), Lynn Clark (Hickory Creek), Rudy Durham (Lewisville), Charlotte Wilcox (Highland Village)
Councilmembers: Tracee Elrod, Barbara Fleming, Chris Gordon, Dan Jaworski, Jason Webb
Trustee: Kronda Thimesch
Community Leaders: Alex Buck, Randy Owens
A website and other materials are currently in development. We are asking you for the following:
1- Introductions to opinion leaders in your community who would be interested in supporting our effort and learning more about Mr. Gilmore.
2- The best email address for keeping you updated on the Exploratory Committee.
3- A brief endorsement of support for Mr. Gilmore as well as if you would prefer the committee using your elected title or not. (Flower Mound has an ethics policy against endorsements including a current title as does LISD for Trustees).
4- Any other feedback for the exploratory committee is welcome and encouraged. There will be an event scheduled later this Spring for everyone to meet.
Thank you again for your support,
The Exploratory Committee Team”
