Mr. PV was serving on the City Council of Spearman when we married
he has been doing that for 22 years now
when he began, he was the youngest Alderman to to be elected
After our good friend Mayor Steve Benton moved to south Texas
Mr. PV was appointed to complete his term and then was elected the following year
so...he has been on the city council now for 22 years and the mayor for 10
our city council is a volunteer board...no money...
just time and love for community are what compel those to serve
He has loved it, and so have I. I have been so proud of him as his post has given him opportunity to serve on regional boards such as Texas Municipal League, Panhandle Regional Planning Commission and was also appointed by Governor Rick Perry to serve on the Regional Review Committee.
He is currently Executive Vice President of First National Bank and will take a higher position in early March. As much as he will miss being the mayor,
he felt his energy needed to be more focused on his job at the bank.
I am proud of him for that too.
He began working at the bank in college during the summers...starting as a teller.
This man has a lot of assets...he is a hard worker, he does his very best at everything he does whether that be leading a community, a bank, or planting a veggie garden at home.
His position will end this May so there will be some last hurrahs as he ends his tenure,
and it will be exciting to see who will step up to be our new mayor.
The race is on beginning January 20, 2016
