Discount the rhetoric

As a former city manager, I have witnessed the political rhetoric that is currently being strewn around Keller as truth.

I see promises and accusations that are not based on fact, but rather are focused on instilling a sense of fear.

Keller has never been, nor will it ever be a community of high-density residential.

My decision to leave Keller was based on my confidence in the leadership and ability of the City Council and staff.

To see some willingly choose to make hollow promises that are disconnected from reality and fail to acknowledge the great city that Keller has become is both disheartening and insulting.

It is easy to make unsubstantiated claims, but the proof is in the results.

Please take this message for what it is, a warning to protect Keller from misguided single-minded politics and support the proven leadership that is McGrail, Hoffmann and Lewis.

Former Keller City Manager
