MetroTex Candidate Endorsements
The MetroTex Association of REALTORS actively supports candidates for office who have demonstrated knowledge and concern about housing in North Texas. Because our area is experiencing both tremendous growth and a burgeoning housing market, we need local leaders who understand the impact of key decisions on housing in their communities. As you are no doubt aware, Dallas-Fort Worth is expecting a continuation of the enormous population boom for several more years. MetroTex maintains that it is critical for local governments to plan for the future by understanding homeowners’ concerns and to bolster homeownership in the area. Supporting those efforts is the Association’s top priority this election season. Through the candidate interview process with MetroTex, our endorsed candidates clearly showed a command of issues critical to sustaining our economy, as well as the needs and challenges our fast-growing area faces.
