Southlake City Council has a new member for the Place 6 seat. Christopher Archer won with 61 percent of the vote in Saturday’s special election, defeating Shauna Newman with 36 percent of the vote and Stephen Luhrs with three percent.
“I am very excited at this opportunity and appreciate everyone who supported me throughout the campaign. I feel that my experience and knowledge gained from serving on the Carroll ISD Board of Trustees will help me as I transition to City Council,” Archer says. “I am looking forward to continuing to grow and expand the relationship between the City and CISD, while representing all Southlake residents.”
Archer stepped down from his post as school board president and expects to be sworn in to the Place 6 seat on September 19.
“I am sad to leave the CISD School Board, but am thankful to have had the opportunity to serve with my fellow Trustees,” he says. “I have learned much from them and wish them the best in the future.”
Some of Archer’s top priorities will be to continue the strong relationship between the City and the school district and to work with Mayor Laura Hill and the City Council towards the 2030 Plan for Southlake’s future. Archer has met with key members of City staff and is ready to jump into the 2018 budget process.
“I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work for the citizens of Southlake in my new role as Southlake City Council member for Place 6,” says Archer.
