A Bold Blend of Community Affinity and Municipality Experience
Elect Nancy Lewis for Fairview Town Council Seat 4
Nancy Lewis has lived in Fairview since 2008. When she was recruited for a job, she moved to the Dallas area in 2007. She explains why she chose to move to Fairview over other options, “Fairview was the perfect place for us. After a busy day at work, I would drive home on Country Club; the views were so serene and calming that the trials of a day at work faded away. I love to come home to Fairview.”
Nancy is running for Fairview Town Council Seat 4. If elected, she will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Town Council. She is a current member of the Fairview Economic Development/Community Development Committee and was a member of the Destination Fairview Committee which has become the Fairview Special Events Committee. She is a current member of the Collin County Sheriff Advisory Committee. While living in California, she began her experience as an elected official when the suburb in which she lived decided to incorporate. She was elected to the council in 1986 and was able to serve the town by assisting in developing the town charter, hiring a town manager, establishing town budgets and developing a long-range plan for the town.
She has been a member of the Heritage Ranch Marketing Committee for four years and was instrumental in working with the Foundation for Lovejoy Schools to locate the Taste of Fairview at Heritage Ranch. She said, “The Taste of Fairview is important to me because everyone participating won. Heritage Ranch was able to show off the country club to a large number of people. The Foundation for Lovejoy Schools received donations. The participating restaurants showcased their food. The people attending had wonderful food and a great evening while donating to a great cause.” During initial conversations, Nancy was the one who suggested that the Foundation for Lovejoy Schools be the recipient of ticket sales.
Nancy said, “I always will do what is best for Fairview. Every decision I make that affects the town affects me too.” She adds, “There needs to be open communication between citizens and council members and this is a two way street.” Regarding the importance of impartiality, Nancy said, “Impartiality is tantamount to good leadership. A council member has to listen to both sides and understand all viewpoints. Better decisions are made when you listen and understand different opinions.”
Ben Brown, a Fairview resident who has sat on various committees with Nancy said, “She thinks out of the box and has ideas that will change and challenge the status quo. She will stand her ground when challenged but not in a demeaning and arrogant way. Whether she is tasked with an assignment or whether she volunteers, you know that the task will get done and will be done well.”
Nancy says, “The things that I like about Fairview are driving down Country Club seeing the horses, shopping for vegetables at the Willis Farm Market, that the people are interested in their community to volunteer for their schools, churches and their town, that our community is safe and the schools are good and especially the small town feel, the friendly caring feeling that you get when you meet people. Fairview is comfortable and serene. Fairview is a great place to live and the town that I love.”
