Long record of service
I have known Kathleen Thompson 10 years and with certainty can say our students, parents and district personnel could not be better represented than by Kathleen.
I have witnessed her work tirelessly to improve the quality, safety and tangible value of living in Grapevine, inspiring all of us to volunteer, to engage all our neighbors, to make good things greater, to think creatively, and to ask hard questions.
Kathleen expects no one to do more than she does herself —the bar will be set high for accountability, passion and reason in GCISD oversight. The feeder pattern topic alone calls for at least one voice on the board from the CHHS area where Kathleen’s family lives.
I encourage you to visit www.votekathleen.com to read about Kathleen’s long record of training and public service.

I wanted to write you today to say a few things about my Husband Bobby Lindamood.
He and I have traveled through life since high school together, and this May will make 21 years we will have been married.
We have two daughters in Colleyville schools (CMS/OCT).
Bobby has worked hard for everything we have, he's built a very successful business with little more than $9,000 dollars and faith in God. Bobby loves people and has a servants heart.
He believes in a hand shake and that someone’s word is their bond.
I believe that if elected to council he will bring this same hard work, big heart and love for our city.
I'm asking that the residents of Colleyville to replace the career politicians, and put common sense back into the council.
Vote Bobby Lindamood for place 6, Elizabeth Zeitlin for place 5, and vote "FOR" Glade road resolution.
Tami Lindamood, Colleyville
Fix city problems
I would like to voice my concern over the removal of 400 plus trees and the taking of people’s property for a 10 foot trail. Yes I do feel the road and the sidewalk needs to be fixed but not at the expense of destroying our "country feel" town.
With so many streets needing repair, why are we spending so much on one street?
We will need $650 million to fix our infrastructure, but yet we will draw out 10 years and $21 million because of the council wants a trail on Glade?
Let’s put business people back on the Council who know what being a citizen is, and can manage a checkbook responsibly.
Elect Bobby Lindamood for place 6, and Elect Elizabeth Zeitlin for place 5. Vote "FOR" Glade road resolution, and let’s fix our city problems the right way…..with common sense.
Lauri Greer, Colleyville
Vote Lindamood and Zeitlin
Colleyville forced a bad plan on its citizens regarding Glade. Council’s "10 Year Plan" has construction lasting 10 years. The Plan had a 10’ trail, destroyed hundreds of trees, threatened eminent domain, and cost $21 Million.
In response citizens developed Resolution 1. Council members oppose Resolution 1, falsely making it a safety issue.
The latest "trick" is a City Attorney memo scaring citizens into believing nothing can be done with Glade if Resolution 1 passes. The memo is wrong and a disservice. It is propaganda for Council.
Whether Resolution 1 passes or not, the 10-Year Plan is a bad idea. Unfortunately, Council is fully invested which is why we need new blood.
That new blood is Bobby Lindamood and Elizabeth Zeitlin. They understand what is a fair, fiscally responsible and a safe reconstruction of Glade.
These candidates will bring common sense to a Council in need.
Jon Ayers, Colleyville
A breath of fresh air
Liz Zeitlin and Bobby Lindamood are a breath fresh air for Colleyville.
Please do your research so you can understand that new blood is desperately needed in our city.
Liz and Bobby are not politicians but were thrown into city politics recently due to decisions by those in power that would take property, waste tax dollars and diminish the rural beauty of our city....and all for no improvement in traffic flow.
Liz and Bobby are proven leaders who represent common sense, fiscal responsibility and respect for those who live in our city.
The good people of this city who often don't vote need to get involved and vote FOR Liz, Bobby and The Resolution to Protect Glade.
This resolution calls for common sense improvements to our roadways without waste.
Liz and Bobby will make certain that is what we get on every issue facing our city.

A vote for Coplen
Nancy Coplen will make an excellent City Council member in Colleyville.
Nancy spent three successful terms on the GCISD Board of Trustees. During that time she helped the District achieve academic excellence while restoring the fund balance and keeping expenses under control, allowing the property tax rate to be lowered over 20 percent.
During her fourteen years of living in Colleyville she has been an active volunteer and local leader in many community organizations.
Her opponent has only recently joined any organizations and has not been active in the community until she decided to run for office.
We are fortunate that someone with Nancy's proven record of service and commitment to the city is running for the Council. Please join me and others who care about Colleyville in voting for Nancy Coplen.

Support for Thompson
I write supporting Kathleen Thompson for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD School Board Place 1.
Kathleen is a tireless public servant dedicated to the citizens of her community. She has championed open and transparent government and was the driving force behind the City of Grapevine’s beginning to record and publish city council meetings.
On April 15, she testified in support of HB 283, a bill to require governmental bodies to record and make available their meetings.
As a school board member, Kathleen will work to champion open and transparent government—something sadly lacking at Grapevine-Colleyville ISD now—and continue to build upon the district excellent programs.
Please join me in supporting Kathleen Thompson for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD School Board Place 1.
Leigh W. Davis, Grapevine
A voice on school board
I'm voting Kathleen Thompson for GCISD School Board, Place 1 and you should too.
I've admired for several years the work Kathleen has done to improve our community. Whether it’s through A Better Grapevine or the Grapevine Veterans Day Parade, the Grapevine I live in is a better place because of Kathleen. And we have the chance to help her do more.
Supporting Kathleen just makes sense. She's a tireless advocate for local property values, public safety and government transparency. She supports neighborhood schools and is unwavering in her opposition to changing the feeder system. She's committed to excellence in education because both of her boys are students in GCISD.
In times when other candidates are willing to say whatever it might take to get elected, Kathleen remains resolute in her principles. Voting for Kathleen, you know what you're getting. She will be your voice on the board.

A clear choice
As a 22 year resident of Southlake who also served on the Southlake Crime Control & Prevention District Board of Directors for many years, I have had the privilege of knowing every Mayor of Southlake since 1993.
It continues to be our home long after our children have graduated from the Carroll schools. Simply put, we just can't imagine living elsewhere.
Laura Hill is the clear choice to be Southlake's next Mayor. Electing Laura will give us a leader that continues the fine leadership that our city has always enjoyed.
Laura, as a business person, has the right skills that we need to keep our city moving forward. There is no question that the 114 corridor will be developed.
What remains a challenge is making sure that its development contains high quality businesses that will benefit Southlake and its citizens.
Please vote for Laura Hill for Mayor.
Frank Pittman, Esq., Southlake
