Scott Dunn says he will not seek re-election to Richardson City Council in May


Richardson Council Member Scott Dunn announced tonight he will not seek re-election in May.

“Eight years is enough for me,” Dunn said at the Jan. 7 City Council meeting.

Dunn, who joined council in 2011 and was re-elected in 2015, is the representative for Place 3, or the southwest portion of Richardson. He also serves on the Methodist Richardson Medical Center Foundation board and is course chairman of Richardson High School’s 5K Excellence in Education Foundation Committee.

While Dunn is retiring from council, he said he intends to seek out other opportunities for public service.

The filing period for candidates planning to run for Richardson City Council opens Jan. 16 and closes Feb. 15. Applications are now available for pickup at the city secretary’s office in City Hall.

  1. Glad that we are rid of sexist pigs such as him. Tired of having to defend the behavior of these chauvinistic men.

  2. Glad he’s not seeking reelection. TX women don’t need sexists like this representing us. The coward insults women and then deletes his social media accounts.

  3. Eight years may have been “enough” for you… was WAY TOO MUCH for many of us. You are clearly a stupid man. Did you really think you could get away with such a comment and survive politically? Yes, your role model in the W. House seems to have done so thus far; but stupid is stupid, and the voters won’t support anyone not smart enough to understand this for long. Just plain dumb!

  4. Name-calling is the lowest form of argument. Ironic that Dunn’s tweet merely highlighted his own intellectual deficiencies. Good riddance.
