Addison Pacesetters (the 50+ group) meet the first Wednesay of each month at Dunn Bros. Coffeehouse on Beltline Road and learn about the Town of Addison. This month, Mr. Chris Terry, Assistant City Manager, spoke to us.
Here are some interesting tidbits from his presentation:
Chris's grandfather was a 2-term county sheriff and as a child, Chris would visit him at the jail. Chris is a graduate of Baylor University and has a degree in Political Science. His first fulltime job in public administration was in Southlake Texas, after completing an internship.
Chris shares some responsibilities with Deputy City Manager Lea Dunn. City Manager Ron Whitehead is responsible for visitor services, the municipal courts, and the Parks & Recreation Department. Chris is responsible for special events, the health department, inspectios, public works (streets, water, animal control, engineering), and general services, including fleet operations and the airport. Lea has responsibility for everything else.
What Chris likes most about his job is that no two days are the same.
Next month, June 3rd is the first Wednesday. Come out and join us at Dunn Bros.
