  1. All the new candidates are NOT moderate Republicans as they say. They are working with a group of people who want immigration reform, healthy environment, equality for all, and affordable healthcare. Along with other progressive causes. We need to re-elect our current council members who focus on public safety (particularly support for law enforcement), low taxes, low debt, low residential density, ethics/transparency reforms and term limits. Councilman Lindamood’s Chicago opponent wants urbanize Colleyville, in other words high density! We don’t want apartments or any more condo’s/townhouses in our great City!
