Vote for Dennis Lewis for Rockwall City Council Place 4

ROCKWALL – There are three good candidates running for Rockwall City Council Place 4 in the May 12 city election:  Dennis Lewis, Michael Johnston and Freddie Jackson.

TheRockwallNews.com endorses conservative Dennis Lewis because he is the best choice.

Residents of Rockwall since 1993, Lewis, 55, and his wife, Clarissa, have been involved in the community for many years while raising their three children here and – in our judgment – understand the issues related to the City and area better than the other candidates.

As a vice president of a large Dallas-based construction company, with over 30 years experience in the building business, Lewis is an expert in a field that is constantly in the news in our fast-growing city.

As a member of the Rockwall Planning & Zoning Commission since last August, Lewis has valuable insight into city planning, growth and finances that will help him to hit the ground running after he is elected.

His wife is a Registered Nurse who worked for 12 years as the school nurse at Virginia Reinhardt Elementary School. She now works at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

In our judgment, his and her backgrounds show he is well-qualified for the Place 4 seat, being vacated by term-limited Cliff Sevier.

Outgoing, friendly and someone who seems to really care about maintaining Rockwall’s high quality of life and its residents, Lewis says he wants to give back to the community that has helped raise his family. His three children each graduated from Rockwall High School and are now college graduates.

With all of his business and community experience, he says he wants to ensure the City Council will deal responsibly with the City’s growth challenges, including needed road construction, economic development, sufficient water and adequate health care for all. We think he will do an excellent job.

Due to his conservative nature, he should also mesh well with other Council members.

From what we see and hear, he also seems interested in what community residents have to say and respects their various viewpoints.

We highly recommend that you vote for Dennis Lewis on either Election Day or during early voting. For more info about him, see his website at: http://dennisforrockwall.com/

Election Day is Saturday, May 12. Early voting began April 30 and continues through May 8. Rockwall residents can vote during early voting at the Rockwall Elections Office on the Downtown Square, just north of the old County Courthouse. On Election Day, vote at Utley Middle School, next to the RISD stadium.

Michael Johnston and Freddie Lewis are both worthy candidates but we don’t believe that either has the combined qualifications, experience and understanding that Lewis has at this point.
