Forum Follow On Q&A

Those of you that attended the Candidate Forum March 29 know that the Mayoral candidates were given some homework in the form of three questions to reflect on and answer later. Following are links to three of those Q&A.  (Harold Froehlich failed to respond.)  Hopefully this gives you better insight into the candidates.

Creek Owners forum

The owners of property abutting Farmers Branch Creek have been pushing the City to better address maintenance and water flow issues. They are holding a forum for the Mayoral candidates on Saturday April 22 from 4:30 to 6 PM. The host is John Brownlee. Click here for details including where to park and to send an RSVP.

The event will be very interesting alone but also 3 Nations Brewery, our own Farmers Branch brewer, is co-sponsoring this event and will be furnishing cold beer.  By the way, 3 Nations is opening their tap room Saturday at 2 PM.  They are at 2405 Squire Place, just east of the DART tracks.
