Two candidates for Place 2 in Town of Annetta

(Continued)

Annetta Town Council Place 2

Danny Coffman, 54, is an independent self-employed life and health insurance agent with 30 years of experience. He is married and has two daughters, one stepson, and three granddaughters. Coffman has earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA.

He has lived in the community for 14 years. Coffman currently serves on the Aledo ISD education foundation board and on their finance and governance committee. He has been a board member of Aledo Athletics, Inc. for the last 12 years managing the concession stand and held leadership positions in the past as treasurer, vice president and fund raising chairman. He is a past board member of the Texas Perinatal Association.

Q: What is the Town of Annetta’s biggest problem and how can you help solve it?

A: Annetta’s biggest problem as well as its greatest asset is the water system. Ensuring adequate water supply should be a priority. This will require planning and foresight to allow for the growth of our community. Proper management of the water system is essential to limit negative impact on property values due to water restrictions. As a member of the Parker County Community Coalition (PCCC), I was intimately involved with addressing water issues from the time the water system was sold to Willow Park and fought hard for our voice to be heard. Through that process I gained a great deal of experience in the political and legal process.  

Q: What makes you the best candidate for town council?

A: I have been active in our community since moving here 14 years ago and am familiar with the local issues. I believe in rolling up my sleeves and going to work. This has meant joining as a volunteer for numerous non-profit agencies. But more importantly I have attended city council meetings as a concerned citizen, standing up to make sure our concerns are known and addressed. I will continue to stand up for what is right and represent all of those served by our city.
