I'm taking the chance that this is a serious question and using this forum to respond in kind.

It's not too early for serious candidates to start planning. Attend council, park board and p&z meetings. Learn about the issues. Watch the interaction between members. Ask questions. And remember, the people voting have a lot more information (if they've studied their packets and done their homework) than is available to the public at the meetings. So don't jump to conclusions. If something seems dumb, you may not have all the facts - and then again, maybe it really is a dumb decision.

Develop your message - not merely regurgitate the feel-good phrases that we've all heard too many times. Are you willing and able to make the time commitment? There's a lot more involved than showing up at meetings twice a month.

And examine your motives. Why do you want to be a council member? Is it an ego trip? How hard are you willing to work? Can you make independent decisions and not cave in to special interests who may not have the welfare of all the citizens in mind? Can you be the kind of representative who will work with others, share credit (we, not I) and accept the consequences of poor decisions?

There are knowledgable people in town interested in good government who will work with and support worthy candidates. After considering all factors, including the above, put your name out there. Someone will get in touch with you.

Now I'm hearing she is bragging to all of her Republican fiends that she's working on another campaign in East Texas. Does she think we are impressed? She is not smart enough to do her job as it is especially if she is working on something else . I pray she doesn't run again.
I'm one of the people she called who voted for her last time. I will not do that again.

After 6 months on the job, Michelle knew so much that she supported the move to oust one of the most well-respected city managers in Texas so the council could "take a different direction." She was away working on the Santorum campaign and now she's gone again?? Doesn't she need to be here guiding this "new direction?" It's not clear what her agenda is, but the first step to higher political office is to do your current job well.

A lot is going on at the City right now. The 2012-13 budget is being prepared, tonight there is a discussion of the two bond items that passed, and two experienced and respected councilpersons leave to be replaced two two newbies. That leaves us with Russo - 4 years, White, Smith and Daniels - 1 year, Sweet (mayor)- 5 years, and Townsend and Lewis - 0 years. That's not a lot of depth and we need everyone's full attention.

I've been here a long time, been around a bunch of mayors and council members. These new guys will be fine. She is different though. I voted for her to. I won't do that again. Her biggest problem is her intelligence and her lack of experience. She thinks people are impressed that she works on these campaigns and believes that will help her in Rockwall. People think it's a joke.
I hope she does not run again. I'm not close enough to her to talk to her about it but I know a couple that are and I will visit with them.

She is just stupid period. I saw her at a chamber event walking around handing out business cards.
She does not know she should not being doing that? When she left everyone was talking about how stupid she is and her Facebook post all day.
I'm not her Facebook friend but they were telling me she post about food and working out and stupid political stuff all the time.

I just happened to find this post. I met her at the Republican Mens Club this Saturday and I was shocked how ignorant and offensive she was.
It was only my third time to attend the meeting but I am a very conservative Rockwall voter and several of my friends who supported her last time will not vote for her next time . If this council makes a good replacement for Mark she will be the only council person I don't support .

She also thinks A&M Commerce is the Aggies.

A friend of mine told me about this post. I worked with her on Brian Hughes campaign. Y'all can have her back. She is one of the most selfish fake people I have ever met. She is so nice at first and comes across sincere but she is all about herself . Brian had no idea what he was getting into with her and regrets getting her involved at all. She thinks she knows politics and Austin and really she is just plain stupid and more trouble than she's worth having around. We learned real quick the only thing we could let her do was maybe make phone calls. He problem is she has uneducated ideas that she can't defend other than like two issues and she has no idea of real issues that affect Texas and no solutions at all. I'm sorry for the people of Rockwall:(

I am the best council person ever.
If you don't believe me ask Rice Santorum , Brian Hughes or Scott Turner . You should be impressed that I know all of these people and believe I know what is best for you and your lives. You must forget that I know nothing about Rockwall and that I am an idiot.

Not all of the incumbents, who are up for City elections in 2013.will run. i believe places 1, 3,5 and the mayor job will be one.

ASFAR as the 2014 election, there will be candidates for places 2, 3, and 6

She is the worst council member I have ever had contact with, I hope she does not run for reelection. If she does I will contribute $500 to their campaign. I'm serious. If there is someone on here who is considering running you can count on our money.

I'm sorry I dont know who Dickson is?
My husband and I have two children who attend Reinhart Elementary.I met her when she knocked on our door last year and I have spoken with her at different functions in the city. She is not that smart, she is very fake and she is a mean person. She spends her time telling everyone what they should think and believe. That is not my idea of what Rockwall is about. Why don't you anonymous posters use your real names so we can have a honest discussion?
