TRWD board seats on ballot

by

David Webb is a veteran journalist who has written for the mainstream and alternative media for three decades. He is now a freelancer who lives in the Cedar Creek Lake area.




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.
