Addison's Next Mayor?

Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717

The city council election in Addison, Texas this year was a non-event.  With 3 candidates vying for 3 seats, the election was cancelled and the candidates sworn in as the code allows. Next year, in 2011, in addition to council seats up for grabs, the mayor's position will also be open due to current Addison Mayor Joe Chow being term-limited and unable to run again.Don Daseke

Don Daseke, Addison's current Mayor Pro Tempore, has been quietly holding exploratory conversations with city leaders, past and present.  Don is an entrepreneur and businessman and he held various positions in Addison before serving on the town council. He was the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the WaterTower Theatre; is a past Vice-Chairman of the Town of Addison Planning and Zoning Commission; was a member of the Addison Business Association;  and he graduated from the Town of Addison Citizens Academy in 1998. 

Don was appointed to the Addison Town Council to fill a vacancy left when Todd Meier resigned to run for Mayor in 2009, then Don was elected in his own right to a 2-year term.

The election for Mayor is in May, 2011.  Will Don run? Will Don run unopposed? Will Don Daseke become Addison's next mayor?  Stay tuned!
