Lewisville City Council Place 3
Penny Mallet wants to lead Lewisville with a vision of one community. Penny leadership goal is to provide a community where all are welcome.
As City Leaders doing the business of Government – they should be a tool that helps where it can for everyone, protect our investments and defend the rights of all.
Lewisville is what Community looks like, caring for each other. Let us make everyone here welcome. The act of running for office is talking to and listening to your voters, especially those who are too often left out of the conversations about their future in the community.
Leadership requires the ability to engage and to create empathy for communities with needs and ideas.
