Jamie Heit Endorsement

Updated: Mar 5


In 2015, I moved to Frisco with my family from Washington DC. Prior to moving here, I was relatively naive about the significance of local politics. I always paid close attention to national politics, of course -- but to be honest I wasn't aware of the impact that local politics had on my daily life.


After less than a year in Frisco, I learned how wrong I was about that. As some of you may recall, in 2016 a large parcel of land across the street from Allen Elementary was in the process of being re-zoned so that it could be sold and used for a 5-acre power substation. I understood that the substation was necessary to support the rapid growth and development in Frisco, but I also felt strongly that the location was potentially devastating for nearby homeowners and families whose children attended the elementary school just 500 feet away.


I collaborated closely with the Planning & Zoning Commission, city staff and City Council to come up with a better solution: a substation that helped meet Frisco's power needs, while located further away from homes and schools. I helped lead my neighbors and other concerned residents to challenge the zoning plan respectfully, with consideration for all parties, but with forward thinking.


Through that process, I learned both how to be an involved resident… and what is needed in an effective Council member.


Sadaf Haq defines those qualities: honesty, integrity, sensibility, the ability to listen to others and the ability to understand complex problems and come up with unique solutions. She is a breath of fresh air -- the perfect mix of intelligence, unbiased rationality, selflessness, dedication and integrity. These are all the qualities I look for in a leader.


I am proud of Sadaf and all that she stands for, and I am proud to stand with her… Not just as a supporter, but with my name on her campaign as her treasurer. I encourage you to meet with her and learn more about her; I have no doubt that you will be impressed by Sadaf Haq’s character and her vision for Frisco.
