Eric Matthews – A Parker County Tea Party Endorsed Candidate, Announces his Run for Weatherford City Council Place 2
I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Weatherford City Council Place 2. I have had a proven track record of success in both my business and as a U.S. Army Captain who served in Afghanistan. As your Councilman for Place 2, I would be committed to bringing that proven leadership to bear on the financial problems that are currently plaguing our city. My focus will be on fiscal responsibility and transparency; citizen involvement in our government; lower taxes and stable utility rates; and job creation.
The cornerstone of my character has always been selfless service. This is more than just a value that has guided me during my time as an officer in the United States Army; it’s also been a tenet that has inspired me to contribute as much as I could to my country and my community. That is why if given the honor of representing the citizens of Weatherford as a City Council member, I will continue to make selfless service the driving force behind my dedication to the city and will always remain vigilant when it comes to keeping your taxes low and handling your money responsibly.
My wife Linda and I have called Weatherford home for more than 8 years. I am proud to live and own a home here in Weatherford, where Linda and I are raising our wonderful daughter Taylor, who is 15 years old. We know how lucky we are to have the opportunity to raise Taylor in a City like Weatherford. Just like you, I want to make sure Weatherford remains safe and beautiful for my family and neighbors.
Weatherford deserves a City Council that can provide real leadership for our city in these challenging times. As a Reagan Republican and member of the City Council, I will remain committed to my conservative principles and will ensure that my duty and responsibility to the Citizens of Weatherford remains at the forefront of my mission.
I hope you will join me in my goals to bring fiscal responsibility, transparency, service, and commitment to the Weatherford City Council.
