Dear Friends,

I would like to announce that I will be running for re-election as your Council Member for District 8!  I appreciate and value the support you have given me.  With your support I have been able to continue to stand on my promise to aggressively work to keep things moving forward in District 8 and our great city.

Our great city has faced tough challenges to start the year.  The COVID-19 pandemic brought on challenges affecting each of our family’s health, safety and well-being, along with the future of our business community.  Dallas held tough through the quarantine, united and worked smart in reopening our city, and moved forward.   

Over the past week, our city has faced the tough challenge of addressing the issue of racism and questions on how we move forward with meaningful change that addresses health and wellness, safety, housing, economic development, education and the quality of life for all residents.  Together we will face this challenge and begin to work on smart solutions.  Dallas will move forward.

As your community leader and servant of the people, my motto has always been and still is listen to the people and respond accordingly for their good. The District 8 Community Office in the former Highland Hills Library is open daily for the people.  This office has allowed me to work directly in the neighborhood so that the people can conveniently interface with myself, my staff and city employees. We are here to listen   even more and continue to effectively serve the people.

For the past 12 months we have been reaping the rewards of my 12 years of dedicated service to you and the city of Dallas. Enclosed, please find a copy of my 2019 District 8 Community Newsletter for your review.

The success of my re-election depends on your continued support! Due to health and safety measure we must follow, I will not be holding my 12th Annual Birthday Celebration Fundraiser.  I’m asking that you unite with me in support of my campaign and my work in keeping to move our great city of Dallas forward! 

Warmest regards,

Tennell Atkins

Dallas Councilmember, District 8
