City of Kyle councilmember Lucy Johnson announced Sunday that she’ll make a mayoral bid, following Mayor Mike Gonzalez’s decision to resign his seat and seek the Hays County Precinct 2 Commissioner spot.
Johnson, who serves as District 5 councilmember, said she’ll bring strong leadership and fiscal responsibility to keep Kyle moving forward, a news release said.
“This recession has meant an end to easy solutions for Kyle,” Johnson said in the release. “When I first ran for City Council, I stated that our city needs a vision for future growth that retains its individual appeal to stay competitive during a period of widespread economic instability.”
“Remaining competitive is more important than ever for Kyle. I am dedicated to ensuring our community continues to develop successfully, even in today’s economic climate,” she added.
Johnson is endorsed by Hays County Pct. 2 Commissioner Jeff Barton, former Kyle Mayor Ed Winn and former Kyle City Council Members Ray Bryant and Paula Alverez, the release said.
A native of Kyle, Johnson is the chair of the Kyle Parks and Recreation Committee, a member of The Friends of the Family Justice Center Honorary Committee, and represents Kyle on the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG). She currently lives in Plum Creek and is a member of the Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce, the release said.Email | Print
