Wichita Falls City Councilor Planning to Finish Term, Not Running Again

Wichita Falls District Two City Councilor Annetta Pope-Dotson has announced that she will not seek reelection following the end of her current term in May of 2015.

"I am announcing now that I will not be running again to give others who may be interested in the District Two seat, adequate time to make their decision to run and plan their campaigns," said the Councilor. "I hope several candidates run from District Two and bring with them new ideas and desires to keep Wichita Falls on the path of growing prosperity," said the Councilor. 

Councilor Pope-Dotson was first elected in 2011 and reelected in 2013 following a 23-year career in the United States Air Force. She is currently working on her Master's Degree from the University of Oklahoma and has a Bachelor's Degree, Cum Laude, from Midwestern State University.

"During my tenure I have been extremely impressed with my fellow Council members and the City staff," said the Councilor. "We have great people working in every Department and Division at the City. During this time we have also faced possibly the most serious issue to befall this area in decades, the drought, and I still have work to do and tough decisions to make until the end of my term next year," said the Councilor.
