Local Election Guide
Frisco resident K.D. Warach has announced his campaign for Frisco City Council. Warach also ran for Council last year twice: in the special election for Place 1 and in the regular May election.

Community Impact Newspaper sent Warach a list of questions about his campaign. Below are his responses, edited for style.

1. Why did you decide to run for this office?


We moved to Frisco in 2013 to raise our family, and we fell in love immediately. I want to give back to this unique city and help ensure that it remains the wonderful place it is today with an eye toward the future. We are seeing historic growth here, but it’s important to recognize that we have challenges ahead in managing this growth. I want to put my civil engineering experience and knowledge to work for our city so it remains a desirable place to live for generations to come.

2. What experience—professionally or politically—do you have that would prepare you for this position?


I have been a practicing civil engineer for more than 20 years. Throughout my career, I have held many leadership positions. I’m currently a vice president for a global engineering firm. In addition, I’m a graduate of the Leadership Academy run by the state of Nevada. Politically, I’ve been active for many years as a campaign worker and activist. I previously ran for City Council in the early 2017 election. Currently, I serve on Frisco’s Board of Adjustment after being appointed this fall.

3. If elected, what would be your top priorities?


While there are many opportunities and challenges facing us in Frisco, I believe these are the most pressing issues we need to address:

Infrastructure and transportation needs: With rapid growth comes a variety of potential problems, such as increased traffic and congestion, the need for public transportation, addressing future expansion of our roads and highways and the maintenance of our existing infrastructure.

Managing our current and future growth: It will take smart long-term planning to ensure Frisco’s continued growth and appeal to the 200,000 plus people forecasted to move here in the coming years.

Taxes: I believe it’s possible to keep our taxes low while continuing to provide exceptional city services. We also need to focus on diversifying our tax base, with the goal of having more businesses contribute to our city’s tax revenue and easing the burden on citizens.

4. What else do you want constituents to know about you and your background?


My loving wife Amna and I have three wonderful children (13, 11 and 5 years old). We’ve been Frisco residents for five years, and we plan to be here for many more. I’m an active participant in my children’s schools as well as a volunteer soccer coach. As a registered professional engineer (P.E.) in Texas and three other states, I’ve worked with federal, state and local agencies throughout my career and successfully managed construction for some of the largest infrastructure projects in the nation, including the $2 billion LBJ TEXpress in Dallas. I ask that the voters of Frisco support me in this election because my goal is to support them—representing their interests as a member of our City Council. I will be the voice of Frisco’s residents.
