I am writing in support of Russ McDanel for Place 8 on the Stephenville City Council. My late husband, Arley, and I have known Russ and his family for many years and have always found him to be an upstanding and responsible citizen.

Russ is previously experienced at serving on the council, which will require no learning curve if he is elected. In addition, Russ listens to what everyone has to say, and he will work tirelessly to meet the needs of the people of this community. He understands the importance of listening over speaking, and he will make sure your voice is heard.

With a degree from Tarleton in Business Management, he has been successful at managing a small business in Stephenville for many years. In addition, he continues to operate his company at near debt-free levels.

His commitment to lowering taxes is exactly what we need on the council.  He cares about everyone in the community and will work tirelessly to best meet the needs of the people in Stephenville. His love for our town and its citizens is made evident in how he works diligently to address the needs of the people, as he has proven in the past.

Sincerely,

Cathy Echols,

Stephenville
