The Real Estate Council Political Action Committee (TREC PAC) announces its endorsement of 15 candidates in the upcoming Dallas City Council election.
As part of its vetting process, TREC PAC carefully reviewed each candidate’s voting records, public comments and public service records. The committee also interviewed more than 30 candidates for all 14 City Council seats to learn more about their backgrounds and plans if elected.
The list of TREC PAC-endorsed candidates includes 11 incumbents and two new candidates who hope to fill the seats vacated by term-limited councilmembers Casey Thomas II (District 3) and Adam McGough (District 10).
Additionally, TREC PAC will endorse Mayor Eric L. Johnson, who was elected in 2019 after representing the City of Dallas for nine years as a member of the Texas House of Representatives.
TREC PAC is supporting newcomers Zarin Gracey for District 3, Kathy Stewart for District 10, and Amanda Schulz for District 14. TREC PAC is also endorsing incumbents Chad West for District 1, Jesse Moreno for District 2, Carolyn King Arnold for District 4, Jaime Resendez for District 5, Omar Narvaez for District 6, Adam Bazaldua for District 7, Tennell Atkins for District 8, Paula Blackmon for District 9, Jaynie Schultz for District 11, Cara Mendelsohn for District 12, and Gay Donnell Willis for District 13.
“TREC’s Executive Committee and membership set goals that we feel are necessary to move the city of Dallas and the entire North Texas region forward. When evaluating candidates for endorsement, we wanted to make sure they shared a similar understanding of what’s best for our city. TREC also focuses on the overall real estate industry, with over 2,000 members from all aspects of the industry including general contractors, sub-contractors, attorneys, architects, engineers, title companies, developers and affordable housing experts. With that in mind, we feel confident that the candidates we have chosen to endorse will represent the city of Dallas, the region and TREC well,” TREC PAC Chairman Scott Rohrman said.
Early voting for the spring election begins Monday, April 24, and ends Tuesday, May 2. Election day is Saturday, May 6.
