Community Impact Newspaper sent Bumgarner a set of questions about his candidacy. His answers have been edited for publication style.
Why did you decide to run for this office?
I’m young; I’m 35 years old. I grew up in McKinney, Texas. I’ve seen the changes that community has gone through. Long story short, I don’t want Flower Mound to turn into McKinney, where you go from a small town with a great country feeling to rat-race suburbia.
What do you think is one of the biggest issues facing Flower Mound today, and how do you plan to address it on council?
If elected, what would be your top priorities?
What experience—professionally or politically—do you have that would prepare you for this position?
I am a business owner and have leadership/management experience working with a Fortune 500 company. I am a voter. I have voted here as long as I’ve been a resident since 2013. I have been vocal on social media on local issues. I’d love to serve this town from the perspective as a citizen and not a politician.
