Frisco City Council elections will take place May 9.
Projects implemented during Sowell's first term include the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility/headquarters, several mixed-use developments, the halting of operations at the Exide facility, and hiring new fire and police chiefs, according to his campaign news release.
"It has been an exciting time to be a part of the leadership of Frisco, and I look forward to continuing the work ahead of us," Sowell said. "The success of our city is a blessing, but it also requires thoughtful stewardship and I continue to take the responsibility very seriously. I am honored equally to be part of the 'wins' and of the solutions to challenges facing our community."
Sowell said he is most proud of building Frisco's capital reserve fund. Since his election in 2012, he said the fund will have more than doubled to more than $6 million.
He also touts a low tax rate and high level of city services.
Sowell has been a Frisco resident since 2000 along with his wife and children. He is president and chief operating officer for Ingo Money, a company offering prepaid financial technologies. He is a Marine Corps veteran and has participated in a variety of community and civic activities.
Sowell is aided in his re-election campaign by Treasurer Chad Rudy and Manager Tracy Gamble.
The councilman has also named an advisory council that he said will provide him with insight and direction throughout the campaign and during his tenure if re-elected.
The council includes: Debbie Pasha, James P. Hogan, Kurt North, Peter Burns, Dick Abernethy, Kristie Edwards, Jeff Hensley, Rick Fletcher, Jeanne Rubin, Lee McCormick, Dick Peasley, Bill Woodard and Mike Gfeller.
"One truth I have observed at all phases of my life—whether at school, in the military or in the workplace—is that good leaders don't surround themselves with followers, but with other strong leaders," Sowell said. "Iron sharpens iron, and I am honored that this group will be at my side to provide their insight and guidance."
