The City of Dallas has dozens of boards and commissions comprised of community volunteers. These boards oversee important city issues, and often make recommendations to the city council. Each council member makes appointments to these boards, and the qualifications and time commitment vary depending on the board.
There are 3 vacant board/commission positions for District 14. (A recent Dallas Morning News article stated that there were 6 vacancies, but they failed to mention that half of those were in the process of being filled (applications had been filed but not yet approved).)
I am seeking committed, qualified candidates who live in District 14. Below are the vacant board positions. Please note that each requires special qualifications of the applicant. View more information about the time commitment and responsibilities of each board here.
