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 (Feb. 22)

GOOD. Water clear; 50 degrees; 15.37 feet below pool. Lake Bridgeport is holding around 15 feet low. Water is stained with temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The low water ramp on U.S. Route 380 and the ramp at the dam are the best bets for launching. Sand bass and hybrids have been holding in the main lake. They are very deep and the bite very light. The deadstick method has put some in the boat. Catfish have been good on cut bait. A partial shad kill has the catfish feeding hard on dead bait. Look shallow and work your way deeper. Largemouth bass should be well into their pre-spawn pattern. Try a black and blue jig and craw in warmer, protected water. Crappie remain scattered, deep water around docks are the best bet. They should be heading to their pre-spawn areas pretty quickly. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
