My wife, Debbie, and I bought our home in Joshua in 2005. We enjoy the small town atmosphere that Joshua provides, and quickly became involved in the community. I have served as Chairman of both the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Capital Improvements Committee and served as a member of the Type A Economic Development Board. When the Joshua ISD Education Foundation was being formed, I was asked to be a member and currently serve as Secretary-Treasurer. Through these involvements I saw that Joshua would be faced with many opportunities in the coming years, so I decided to run for Mayor and be a part of city’s future growth.
Debbie and I have been married for 24 years. We have five children, and four grandchildren. Four of our children live and work in the Joshua/Burleson area, which is the reason why we moved here. We are members of the First United Methodist Church of Joshua. I work out of my home as a consultant to the Mortgage Banking Industry.
I look forward to serving the citizens of Joshua.

I have lived in Joshua for the past twenty years and the Johnson County area for the past forty years. My husband, Roy, has lived here all his life and is a retired employee of Bell Helicopter. I am currently President of the Joshua Area Chamber of Commerce. I also serve on the Heritage Preservation Committee and the Animal Shelter Board for the City of Joshua. I am a member of the Board of Directors for the YMCA, and a member of the Joshua Lions Club and Joshua Police Academy Alumni Association. I am honored and excited to be part of the City Council. I see the potential growth for our City and I’d wanted to be part of that growth, but I also see the importance of preserving Joshua’s history.

I have lived in Joshua since 1979 and graduated from Joshua High School. My wife and I have been married for 22 years and we have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Our daughters graduated from Joshua and my son graduates in 2019.
I have worked for Bell Helicopter since 2005 as an Aircraft Painter and serve on the safety committee. My wife has worked for the school district since 2011. We enjoy camping, fishing, and spending time on our farm here in Joshua. We do volunteer work with school activities at JISD and at the local food bank warehouse. We are members of Open Door Church, where I also serve as a deacon.
Joshua has been home to me since I was 10 and I have seen it grow yet maintain its small town appeal. I enjoy living here and I am excited to be working with our council to be a part of the future growth of our city.

My husband and I moved here in 1996 from Arlington. We moved here because we loved the peacefulness and small town feel. We have two grown sons that both attended and graduated from Joshua ISD.
I have a city government background having worked for the City of Arlington and the City of Abilene in management positions with the Parks and Recreation Department for a combined total of 16 years.
Richard and I own Right at Home, a home care and personal assistance business here in Joshua to help seniors, post-surgery patients, and other who might need help.
I have served on the Joshua Planning & Zoning Commission for 7 years, a Board Member for the Type B Economic Development and Parks Board, the Joshua Community YMCA, and the Johnson County Economic Development Commission
I look forward to being on City Council and serving the citizens of Joshua as it continues to grow.

I have lived in Joshua for almost two years. Prior to moving to Joshua, I lived and grew up in the Arlington area. My wife Jennifer and I have been married for eleven years and have three children, Kaleb, Chance, and Kinley. We love the small town feel and great school districts that Joshua has to offer. I currently work for Target Corporation and have a combined ten years of business experience in management and law enforcement.
I had the opportunity to serve on the Type A Economic Development Corporation Board this year. I enjoy being involved in the community and see great potential for the city of Joshua to grow and develop. I look forward to serving the citizens of Joshua and continue to make this city great.

My wife of 20 years, Donna, and I moved to Joshua over 15 years ago while we were looking for a small community with strong schools to raise our children in. Having taught for several years in Joshua ISD and then staying home for the past 11 years, Donna now finds herself back in education and her passion with Cleburne ISD teaching 2nd grade. Our oldest son, Mitchell, is a freshman Sooner at OU finding his way with the Naval ROTC. We have a new teenager in the home as our middle son is enjoying 7th grade at Loflin, playing sports and band. Our youngest, Paige, continues to keep us busy with her singing and acting where you can usually find her in some local venues on occasion. Myself, I stay busy building a new business as an Edward Jones Financial Advisor. I have been involved for over 6 years as a member of our Type B Economic Development and Parks Board. Here I am proud to have worked closely with our city staff and others making our first city park a reality and opening the county’s first YMCA. I look forward to keeping Joshua moving forward in the years to come.

I grew up in southern Indiana. Joining the US Air Force in 1976, I had the opportunity to travel the globe, experiencing different cultures. I moved to Texas in 1986. My wife, Kim (from Burleson) and I settled in Joshua after we married in 1988. The small town atmosphere of Joshua was and continues to be very important to me. We and our two adult children own businesses in the Burleson/Joshua area.
Growth is a natural process for all cities and I am excited to be a part of Joshua’s future. I’m committed to serving the people of Joshua and working to keep it an affordable and pleasant place to live.
