Dan DagelEmail: dageldan@aol.comWater;
Our water has been below state standards since 2006. The current repairs,15 million dollars worth, may or may not fix the problem. There has been no guarantee from the state engineers or our own public works director that the current work will fix the problem. If it does not, it will be time to see if we can make an agreement with the City of Fort Worth to purchase water in the future. We already use them for sewer disposal service.

Fire department;
We need to get away from a volunteer department and find the money from other non-essential services to hire paid firefighters, 24/7.
I have lived in River Oaks since 1987. I have watched the current city leaders for 24 years run our once great city into the ground.
I can not stand by any more. It is time to change the direction the city has been moving for so long. The city needs to get back to being ruled by the people, not the city fathers.
The only way to do this is from the inside, so I have decided to do my part in turning the city around.
I have learned over the years that it is important to listen to what my customers want and expect, and a council person should do the same thing. I understand what it means to work within a budget and that not everyone will be happy with that.
