Mike Lombardo, Tom Heslep and Dan Jaworski returned to the Highland Village City Council where they will continue to represent Places 3, 5 and 7, respectively.

The city swore the three in May 11 at the regular council meeting after canvassing the votes cast in the May 1 election.


Lombardo has been on council since 2014. Heslep was elected to council in 2019. Jaworski joined the council in 2017. All three had previously served on the planning and zoning committee.

Following the swearing in, the council selected a mayor pro tem and deputy mayor pro tem for the newly formed council.

Jaworski moved that Lombardo continue acting as mayor pro tem and Barbara Fleming continue as deputy pro tem. The motion was approved unanimously.
