Occupation: entrepreneur; business owner; director of a community bank

What are the previous positions that you have held that are relevant to the office that you are running for?

SH: Previously, I was on the city of Southlake Zoning Board of Adjustment for two terms. My background as a banker and my experience in business and enterprise technology would be an asset to citizens, business owners and leadership of the City Council of Southlake.

Why are you running for office?

SH: I have lived in Southlake for over 27 years. Now that I am an established entrepreneur, I have the passion, energy and time to give back to the city that has shaped me into the woman I am today. I want to preserve and protect the Southlake way of life by working to lower property taxes, preserve lower-density single-family homes, say NO to apartments, reduce traffic and maintain parks and open spaces.
