I believe public service is a noble undertaking. It embodies the ethical principles of common good and service to others. Local government deals with problems of ordinary people. People care about quality of life, fiscal discipline, protecting our seniors, ensuring public safety, planning for the future and providing a quality education for our children. Together, we can make a better Coppell.
