I’m Jane Welch, and I’m seeking the opportunity to once again serve our Town of Lewisville as a member of the Town Council. I have a passion and commitment to continue being a part of a community I’m so proud of. Thank-you for considering me when voting on November the 7th.
Melissa Hunt is a local business owner, mother of 3 and Lewisville resident. Because she loves the community and wants to see it thrive 10, 20, and 50 years from now, she is running for Town Council to help preserve the small-town charm through smart, controlled growth while being fiscally responsible with the town's tax dollars.
I’m running for Lewisville town council to serve the residents and help continue the vision of the comprehensive plan.
As a 6th-Generation resident of Lewisville I have seen what my ancestors and the ancestors of so many other proud citizens have built. My family began its time here over 150 years ago. With a ferry on the Yadkin River before any bridges were constructed, and life as farmers and planters of the coveted maple trees along Conrad Road we have remained dedicated to our town. Simply, my roots run deep here in Lewisville. It is time that my generation took a vested interest in the wonderful town that is Lewisville. By working with fellow citizens on the “Save Conrad Road” campaign a few years ago, I have tried to always look out for the place I call home. With plans to ensure smart economic decisions, without compromising Lewisville’s beauty and grace, I feel that I can prepare our town for the future. As a member of our Council, I feel that I can help bring fresh perspectives and ideas to the issues of our town while considering the wishes and hopes of all residents. - Thank you and I look forward to your vote!
I’m Ken Sadler and I’m running for re-election to the Lewisvile Town Council. I have lived here since 1978. I was part of the group that promoted and successfully achieved the Incorporation of the Town in 1991. Since that time I have worked to insure that Lewisville remains the type of community envisioned at that time. I was a member of the Charter Council and have served on Council for a number of years. I helped spearhead the efforts that lead to the creation and development of the Town Square, the Library, Town Hall and Jack Warren Park. I was also part of the effort to bring to realization the Great Wagon Road which will be built in the not to distant future.
My desire is to make sure the wishes of the majority of the citizens are honored. I will work to make sure the comprehensive plan is implemented where practical. I’m a retired army colonel and as a veteran have defended the ideals of the nation by working in a support role. I am a dentist by profession and currently interim & executive director and CEO of the North Carolina Dental Society.
My wife Brenda (who is a physician) and I have reared two sons , Jackson (a dentist) and Raleigh a graduate of UNC Charlotte.
I have served in many civic roles in the county and state.
I am a retired Wake Forest University Faculty who has lived for over 30 years in Lewisville. I have a wife, two children and two grandchildren. My son lives in Lewisville. That guarantees me three votes from my own family. However, that is not enough. I need your votes and those of your neighbors to be elected. I am running on a platform of austerity and I promise to voters that I will vote only for essential city government functions and oppose all causes that are unnecessary and wasteful . Secondly, I promise to be accessible through web site, email and cell phone.
My friend and real estate agent, Mr. George Ware will read this and will distribute my campaign literature so you can learn more about my platform. I will do my best to keep property taxes low which is good for home prices and the real estate sector, business startups and put money in the hands of people to stimulate the economy. As one of the very few Democrat presidents that I admire, Bill Clinton famously once said, “It is the economy stupid”. More importantly, he didn’t say “It is the government stupid”. In our country the economy is five times as big as the Federal budget and is a clear, outright and unambiguous winner as to which of the two should be our priority. When we run governments carefully and keep taxes low, the economy will take off and provide more and more jobs. New Job creation is the most reliable way to do justice for our minorities and low-income earners in the majority.
My husband Kevin and I have lived in Lewisville for over 20 years. Kevin is a middle school science teacher in Yadkinville and I retired from the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools after 19 years as a teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I now work with the City of Winston-Salem in the Human Relations/Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Department as the city's Equity Assurance Administrator. I received my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership at High Point University.
My work has always been service oriented. My work with the city ensures that employees and the residents we serve are treated in an equitable and inclusive manner. If elected to the Lewisville Town Council my goal would be the same, to serve all Lewisville residents, and ensure that their vision for the town and any concerns they express, are heard and addressed equitably and inclusively.
I believe serving in public office is a privilege and that when given that privilege it then becomes our responsibility to represent and be a voice for those that put us in office. It is easy to talk about what should or could change, but harder to be a part of the actual work of creating positive change. I want to be a part of helping Lewisville continue to grow to meet the needs of my fellow Lewisville residents, while managing that growth to keep the special aspects of our town that make it uniquely Lewisville.
I would focus on and support:
I need your votes and I am asking for them. It would be a privilege to serve you on our Lewisville Town Council.

Mayor Mike Horn -
I have served you on the town council for 26 years and as mayor for 10 of those years. During this time, I believe we have made significant investments to improve the quality of life for all our residents including Shallowford Square, Town Hall, Jack Warren Park, Mary Alice Warren Community Center, The Lewisville Gateway, Lewisville Middle School and a number of roadway improvements, sidewalks and recreational and entertainment events - all without an increase in the property tax rate.
I am seeking to continue to serve as your Mayor for one final term because I believe the next two years will be a landmark period for our town with the ground breaking next year of the long planned Great Wagon Road.
Additionally, we will be challenged by significant growth in the coming years through new development and folks wanting to move to Lewisville, frankly because it’s a great place to live. To best manage this growth we will, more than ever, need to stay with our town vision expressed in our Comprehensive Plan that our residents have helped develop.
It has been my privilege to have served with previous councils that shared our common vision for the future, worked extremely well together and have demonstrated exceptional fiscal responsibility (we have reserves of more than $11.5 million dollars).
I believe that I can continue to provide strong, experienced and visionary leadership during this next term to the benefit of all our residents. I would appreciate your continued support.
