Yesterday, Jessica Walker announced her decision to run for Temple City Council District 1.

The District 1 seat was left empty after Tim Davis' decision to enter the Mayoral race.  The Council Chambers were full of supporters for Jessica, who was born and raised on the North Side.

Walker and her husband, Bruce, own Lengefeld Lumber in Downtown Temple.

After attending Temple schools herself, she was enthusiastic about her own children spending their time in school in TISD. She has been a long time supporter of the school district and the opportunities it allows for its students.

Voting for the City Council District 1 seat will take place on May 5th.
