"I hope that my history of service to the community as well as my experience working with City committees will earn the confidence of District 6 voters. I would be honored to serve as their representative to the City Council. As a local business owner, I know the importance of keeping the city on its current course of strong fiscal responsibility and running city government like a business. Following the blueprint and making Tyler attractive to businesses as well as individuals is a priority."

Curtis is married to Kris and has two children and four grandchildren.
