Jimmy Lucas filed for Place 2 on the Sulphur Springs City Council on the afternoon of the first day to file, January 17, according to City Secretary Gale Roberts.
A native resident of Sulphur Springs for 54 years, Lucas said choosing this city as his home has been key to his success in life, and it’s time for him to give back. If elected, Lucas plans to address the growing challenges facing the community including road repairs, taxation and business development outside of downtown. Additionally, fire/rescue, police services, parks and recreation and senior citizen services are a top priority for Lucas.
Previously, Lucas has stated, “If elected, I can ensure citizens that each vote made from this seat will be in the best interest of all citizens and all consumers for our city. I have no issue or reservation with questioning or going against the grain to guarantee all residents are represented.”
