MUSTANG — A 25-year Mustang resident, Tim Mount, faces incumbent Councilman Terry Jones in the race for Mustang City Council's Ward 4 post. The election will be April 2.
Jones, 68, is the councilman chairman. His three-year term ends in April. He is president of Frontiers of Faith Inc., a nonprofit organization involving ministry and fundraising efforts for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Jones said that during his time in office, roads that needed attention were paved, and a stop sign was installed at the dangerous intersection of State Highway 92 and SW 59.
“I have a great drive to see the city completed,” Jones said.
“There's a lot more to it than meeting twice a month,” he said about the councilman chairman position. “I have experience, skill and relationships with the people.”
Mount, 54, is a glazing contractor for Consolidated Builders Supply. He said he is concerned with the way the city spends its money.
“Everybody moves to Mustang for its rural, country aspects,” Mount said. “I'd like to see it stay that way.”
Mount said his 34-year marriage to his wife, Tina, and their longtime Mustang residency proves his commitment to the people and community he cares about.
Kathleen Moon, 55, is running unopposed in Ward 2.
