I consider it an honor to serve as your Precinct 3 Commissioner for Northeast Tarrant County.
Precinct 3 is the fastest-growing precinct in the county, approaching a population of 500,000.
Most residents are surprised to learn the wide range and the great number of services that Tarrant County provides for our citizens. My office can help you understand how to navigate and access these community resources that can help you, your friends and loved ones.
The most important priority to me is providing the best quality of life and the appropriate resources for the residents and businesses in Northeast Tarrant County. I am focusing on these four areas:
1. Transportation is a critical issue. The ability to move
throughout our area smoothly and safely is of the utmost importance.
My office has assisted in the now-completed DFW Connector and we are
entering the final phases of the North Tarrant Express on Northeast
Loop 820 and Airport Freeway. At any given time, we will have over a
dozen projects going on, from replacing existing roads and bridges to
coordinating road projects with the Texas Department of Transportation
(TxDOT), local municipalities and the Regional Transportation
Commission(RTC). To learn more about our transportation summit, which
occurs annually in February, please visit our Northeast
Tarrant Transportation Summit page.
2. Healthcare involves everyone in our community and is a major
issue throughout Texas and the United States. The Commissioners Court
oversees the operation of the Tarrant County Hospital District/JPS
Healthcare System, our public hospital and clinic system that covers
the residents of Tarrant County. It has over 30 satellite facilities
throughout the county, with a JPS Clinic near you.
3. Seniors represent a higher percentage of the Northeast
Tarrant County population than any other precinct. In 2009, I formed a
Senior Task Force and asked what we could do to serve seniors better.
The Senior Task Force asked us to create a local event to provide
information, resources and healthcare screenings. In response, my team
and I developed "Empowering Seniors," which is held each
October, and now attracts over 1,600 attendees for free healthcare
screenings, senior-focused topics and exhibitors that serve the senior
market. Responding to requests, we expanded the scope to those 50 and
over so we could include caregivers and soon-to-be seniors who would
also need this information. We hope to see you at Empowering
Seniors 2016 on Friday morning, October 7, at Campus West
4. Quality Economic Development is key to providing the
continued positive growth we enjoy in Northeast Tarrant County. By
demanding quality, we receive long-term value. Our Economic
Development Department works with the cities
in Precinct 3 to enhance their ability to attract
development that fits the needs of our citizens.
