Who We Are

We’re moms and dads, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters; we’re homemakers, teachers, lawyers, and small business owners. All of us share one thing: we’re committed to making sure Irving is the best place in America to raise a family.

To advance that goal, we’re supporting candidates in the upcoming May 2022 City Elections who will stand up for all Irving families and make the city we love even better: John Bloch for Council District 1Brad LaMorgese for Council District 2 and Bryan Jones for Council District 7.

We hope that you will join us.

Our Principles

  • Ensure Irving’s cultural services—including its libraries and arts—reflect the traditional family values of our community

  • Advance school choice by facilitating additional high-caliber charter schools in Irving 

  • Protect and preserve the character of existing single family housing neighborhoods

  • Provide first-rate parks and recreation (including swimming pools)

  • Hold public architecture to higher standards of beauty so that public edifices and monuments properly honor our City’s past and inspire our children to build its future.

  • Plan an Irving that continues to attract world-class businesses while safeguarding the interests of Irving families

  • Stand by first responders, rejecting any efforts to defund Irving Police and Fire, in order to ensure that Irving families always have access to the best resources for public safety.
