- Fundraiser for Mary Kelleher & Gary Moates for TRWD
Join us after FW Earth Party to help Mary Kelleher's bid to return to the Tarrant Regional Water District Board. The TRWD's Panther Island Project lacks transparency and should be scaled back. It is far over-budget and has taken way too much time. Mary wants to get the TRWD out of development and back to its core mission: flood control, water supply, and recreation. Meet Mary and learn about her platform and goals for the TRWD and the Panther Island Project. Gary Moates will also be in attendance. He is seeking a seat on the TRWD board as well. Check out his FB page: Vote Moates for Tarrant Regional Water District Board.
