TRWD board seats on ballot




Five candidates will compete for three seats on the Tarrant Regional Water District Board of Directors in the May 6, 2017, election in Tarrant County.

Two of the candidates are incumbents, including Jack Stevens, who joined the board in 2004 and now serves as vice president, and Mary Kelleher, who was elected in 2013.

They are being challenged by three prominent business people: Andra Beatty, a real estate broker; James Hill, a banker and Leah King, a communications manager. All have long histories of civic involvement in Fort Worth, the site of TRWD’s headquarters.

The winners will join incumbents Victor Henderson, president of the board who was elected in 1985; Marty Leonard, secretary of the board who joined it in 2006 and Jim Lane, secretary pro tem, who was elected in 2006.

TRWD, in operation for more than nine decades, manages the seven water reservoirs of Cedar Creek, Richland Chambers, Worth, Eagle Mountain, Bridgeport, Benbrook and Arlington.

Lake Bridgeport

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 15)

GOOD. Water stained; 70 degrees; 12.89 feet below pool. The low water ramps at Wise County Park and Runaway Bay are the best bet for launching. The main lake is stained but quite stirred up on both ends. Crappie continue to be hot, especially from the mid lake area south. Fish can be right on the shore or out to about 8 feet of water around cover with minnows and jigs. Sand bass and hybrids have been good. Fish are wandering, feeding hard on shad. Look close to shore early and back off into deeper water as the day warms up. Topwater baits and slabs have been putting them in the boat. Largemouth bass have been good on topwaters, flat billed crankbaits, finesse baits. Check main lake points near deeper water. Catfish action is picking up on! cut shad. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
