From Top to Bottom: Mike Gallaway, Trini Gonzalez

By BJ Austin, KERA News

Dallas, TX – Irving voters decide three City Council seats on Saturday, May 8th.

Place 1 is a new single-member district in South Irving, majority Hispanic. 64 year old Trini Gonzalez is a political newcomer, owner of Glass Bricks by TC in Irving. It's also the first campaign for 45 year old Mike Gallaway, a senior inventory planner, and co-owner of a downtown Irving clothing boutique.

Each candidate was asked the same questions:

How will single member districts impact city government?

What are the issues facing Irving?
