Candidate Q&A

1. WHY ARE YOU THE BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE?
Bill Jones
Brianne Martindale
Stacy Peek
I've been a contributor and leader in the professional business industry for over 25 years. I understand the fine balance required for growth, while preserving the qualities and characteristics that sets you apart from others. With a team that shares the same vision, and thoughtful planning, I, along with my team have been successful in growing while preserving the core characteristics of an infrastructure. I adamantly state that this cannot be managed by one person. For Azle, it will take leaders in all capacities (Council, Chamber, School Districts, Churches) and the Azle community, to embrace and work towards a shared vision.
