A SE Campus biology professor is running for a spot on the Kennedale City Council in May.
“I was on the parks and recreational board for two years,” said Dr. Elizabeth Carrington, who is running in the election.
While on the board, the city took some positive turns that Carrington noticed.
“I was really impressed in the direction the city is going,” She said.
Carrington will face many tasks if she is elected, but certain ones are more important to her.
“I will be working on making major road improvements,” Carrington said. “Also, I will be working very hard to bring in more economic development.”
She hopes to make a difference in the economic aspect of Kennedale.
“Any good-neighbor kind of businesses that provides jobs and sales taxes for the city is what I hope to bring in,” Carrington said. “The more sales tax we bring in from businesses, the less private property owners have to pay on their taxes.”
Early voting starts April 26-May 4, and regular voting is on May 8.
“I’m running a positive campaign and am looking forward to grow and improve the quality of life for the Kennedale residents,” Carrington said.
