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.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 19)

GOOD. Water stained; 52 degrees; 3.83 feet low. The weather should cooperate this weekend with mild winds and rising temperatures after the cold front. Largemouth bass are slow on crankbaits and underspins are fished very slowly. Sand and hybrid bass are good on the deadstick technique, fair on slabs. Both work best when fished with little or no movement in cold water. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths as the fish are doing the same thing. Keep an eye out for Gulls to help you find the fish. Blue Catfish are good on cut gizzard shad, drifting deeper water near the river channel. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs in deeper water near docks and the HWY 380 bridge. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
