Garland City Council Member in the Spotlight
District 4 City Council Member B.J. Williams received public recognition for his community service – past, present and future.
The South Dallas Business and Professional Women’s Club (SDBPWC) named Council Member Williams as their 2014 Man of the Year. This award recognizes individuals who demonstrate outstanding community service beyond the call of duty. The award was presented during the 51st V. Alyce Foster Trailblazer Awards Luncheon on April 26. Garland Mayor Douglas Athas, Mayor Pro Tem Lori Dodson, District 2 City Council Member Anita Goebel, and Gwen Daniels from the SDBPWC were on hand to congratulate Council Member Williams.
Meanwhile, the Texas Municipal League (TML) has invited Council Member Williams to serve on its Legislative Committee on Transportation and Rights-of-Way. These policy committees play a key role in developing the League’s legislative priorities. TML officials cited Council Member Williams’ experience in municipal government and his knowledge of relevant issues.
Council Member Williams was elected to represent District 4 in May 2012. Prior to serving on the Garland City Council, he served on numerous City boards and commissions and served as chair to the Garland Plan Commission.
Council Member Williams expresses his commitment to serving Garland and the community at-large by quoting the words of pastor/author John Wesley: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.”
