The competition intensifies for the open District 4 seat on Denton City Council, as three distinguished candidates, Joe Holland, Stephanie Neuharth, and Donald Thornton, present their individual visions for the future of the city’s southern section. Each candidate showcases a diverse mix of professional expertise and dedication to community service. According to an article from Cross Timbers Gazette, while they share certain priorities, such as repealing the voter-approved ordinance to decriminalize marijuana, their unique experiences set them apart in the race.

Joe Holland, a 71-year-old former Justice of the Peace, aims to improve road conditions, support Denton’s police and fire departments, maintain or reduce the city’s tax rate, and improve the city’s business community. He envisions implementing an economic development fund to attract strong businesses to Denton.

Stephanie Neuharth, a 35-year-old loan officer, focuses on fiscal responsibility, reducing tax burdens, and cutting costs while supporting police and fire departments. Neuharth differentiates herself from her opponents through stewardship, responsiveness, and trust, and her background in account management and auditory compliance.

Donald Thornton, a 56-year-old financial analyst, prioritizes keeping property taxes affordable, promoting economic development, and addressing homelessness in Denton. Thornton serves on the Denton Police Chief Advisory Board, and he believes his intricate relationship with the city and the police department, his passion for numbers, and his grit and toughness set him apart from his opponents.
