FPAC Is NOT Associated with Frisco Arts

It has come to our attention that the Frisco Performing Arts Coalition’s endorsements of political candidates for Frisco City Council have been confused as the actions of the Frisco Association for the Arts (Frisco Arts), as well as personal endorsements by members of each organization. This is not the case. While we have stated this on all communications, there has been a breakdown in messaging that has led to this unfortunate situation. The Frisco Performing Arts Coalition was formed in 2014 solely to support political issues of importance to the arts in Frisco and the region. While both organizations promote a healthy, vibrant arts environment in Frisco, the membership and operations of each are entirely separate. To be clear, the Frisco Performing Arts Coalition is a registered political action committee with no association to Frisco Arts, and we deeply regret any hardship encountered as a result of this confusion.

In addition, please note that the FPAC exists only to inform voters. While FPAC issues endorsements based on our research, we do not actively campaign for or against any candidate.

FPAC Endorses Frisco City Council Candidates

The City Council Candidate Forum on the Arts was held on Wednesday, April 13th, at Stan’s on Main Street.  The forum was a huge success and very well attended despite the weather!  The goal of the forum was to cultivate an informed discussion that will lead to informed voters.  The candidates answered specific questions regarding various arts issues, including the performing arts center, the city’s contribution to the arts from the Hotel Occupancy Tax, the Public Art Ordinance, and more.  After an exhaustive review process of each candidate, The Frisco Performing Arts Coalition is proud to endorse Terri Green for Place 2 and Laxmi Tummala for Place 4 in the upcoming City Council Election on May 7. Thanks to Sonny Moyers for moderating, and to all who attended.

Meet Frisco’s City Council

The Frisco City Council in made up of 6 publicly elected representatives and a mayor.  The role of the mayor is to preside over council meetings and vote only in the case of a tie among the 6 councilpersons.  All positions are at-large, meaning each member of the council represents the entire city, not a designated region.  Additionally, the City of Frisco has adopted the council-manager form of government.  This means that a city manager is employed to carry out the day-to-day operation of the city with all departments reporting to this position.  The City Council simply sets policies, budgets, and direction.  The city manager is responsible for administering those policies.  This is a popular form of government within the state of Texas.

 

City Council meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center.  The public portion of the meeting typically begins between 6:30pm and 7:00pm after the City Council returns from closed session.  All public meetings are required to posted 72-hours in advance.  A list of upcoming and past meetings, along with agendas and minutes can be found on the City of Frisco website.  All City Council meetings are streamed live online.  While the meeting is in session, the link will be available on the website next to the agenda and minutes links.
