Mark Mathews, for Mayor, has a history of achieving project goals through successful collaborations with local municipalities and economic development leaders. Keller has no Economic Development Plan.
Rick Barnes, for Place 6, is an established speaker, author, business coach and leadership trainer. “We need to be careful with high-density over-development and bring quality commercial development.” Candidate forums exposed a gap in communication between the present Council and citizens.
Bill Hodnett, for Place 5, retired from Brinks Armored, a former Senior Corporate VP for the Eastern region of the U.S. is “not opposed to medium-to high-density residential developments as long as it does not require rezoning to accomplish that development.” Commercial developments are the way to go. He believes in rules and plans in order to know if beneficial progress is being made. His management skills would be a welcome addition to the council.
