Professional, Charitable, Community Leadership
Richard Jackson is known for protecting the quality of life in Farmers Branch neighborhoods.
When a local short-term rental was being used for illicit and disorderly activities, Richard stood tall for all Farmers Branch residents. He mobilized concerned citizens and worked with City Council to enact code that now holds bad-actors accountable. His leadership brought swift action, returning peace to the neighborhood. Richard also frequently takes on aggressive, criminal transient behavior that threatens Marsh/635 neighborhoods.
As Chairman of the Board for Services of Hope Entities, Richard worked with challenged youth in underperforming elementary schools- reducing failure rates and improving college-bound opportunities. Richard was also selected to serve on the Mayor's I-35 Betterment Task Force.
Passionate about community, selfless service, family values, and citizen engagement. We can trust Richard to protect our neighborhoods, manage our tax dollars wisely and preserve our quality of life.
