Letter to the Editor – Grapevine’s May Municipals

Dear Editor,

This coming Thursday is the deadline to register for Grapevine’s May Municipals. It will be a full ballot, with two contested city council races and the term limits city charter amendment election.

I’m looking forward to voting in the contests for Place 3 and Place 4, as well as for term limits, because public Grapevine needs citizen legislators not career politicians. Grapevine needs innovation and modernity, like video recording council proceedings, an open and honest checkbook online and accountability to and respect for its citizens and business owners.

Last year, our family moved within Grapevine and we’ve changed our voter registration to reflect our current address. Have you moved? Make sure you’re registered by April 11 and mark your calendar for early voting, April 29.
