Vote for Mike Townsend for Rockwall City Council Place 6

ROCKWALL – In the race for Rockwall City Council Place 6, Mike Townsend is the best candidate to vote for, either on Election Day, May 12, or during early voting, April 30-May 8.

Townsend, 43, is a strategic planner with AT&T, who for the past decade has worked with its marketing and business teams with multi-million dollar budgets to bring new products to the market in a cost-efficient manner. His planning and budgeting experience should prove invaluable for the City Council.

A believer in limited government, his philosophy should mesh well with our fiscally-conservative mayor and council members. He appears to be thoughtful, analytical and courteous to others.

As a Rockwall resident for 14 years, he’s married with three children, and has been very involved in raising them. We like and are impressed with that.

An active volunteer with Rockwall High School’s athletic program, he is a member of the Rockwall Education Foundation and Rockwall Noon Rotary.

He and his wife helped found the Kids Town ministry at Lake Pointe Church, and are very involved with the Church’s children’s and sports ministries. They have served as co-chairs for the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s North Texas Annual Gala for the past nine years.

He is also a former Board Member of Camp Sol, a Foundation that provides support to families with deceased children.

Townsend says he believes that it is the responsibility of the Rockwall residents to make the city “a shining star to those who see it.” He believes it is government’s job to stay out of the way and allow that to flourish. We like that!

He wrote on his Facebook page that because he does not believe government has to strictly regulate every detail of business, he will fight against it, so Rockwall can become even more attractive to strong family-oriented businesses that want to start up or relocate all across North Texas. Sounds good to us!

Please vote for Mike Townsend in the May 12 City Election for Place 6. His declared opponent, Jonathan Gideon Singh, has not yet shown up at any election debates or forums and few people seem to know who he is.

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.
