Get Out and VOTE, Frisco!!!

This is the final week and we’ve learned that ONLY approximately 5,200 of us have voted so far for our Mayor, City Council seats, and FISD Board seats. Our local government has far more impact on our daily lives than national issues so PLEASE take the time and make the effort to educate yourself and make your voice heard!

Let’s plan your calendar all week long, Frisco! Spring is in full swing, and we have all the events to go along with it… the Cowboys Draft events, entrepreneurship meetings, an FC Dallas game, and live music galore!
