Long-time Forney Resident Appointed to Vacancy on City Council
On Tuesday, January 22, the Forney City Council addressed the resignation of Cory McGee, who held the position of City Council Member Place 1. To fill the void left by Mr. McGee’s resignation, the Mayor and the remaining Council Members voted in a 4-2 vote (Wilson & Johnson voting against) to appoint longtime Forney resident, Mike Thomas, to the seat.
Mr. Thomas and his wife, Cyndi, moved to Forney in 1984. In addition to being a local business owner and raising their 2 daughters here, Mike has served the City in numerous ways throughout the last 35 years. He has years of experience in city government stemming from his current position as the Chairman of Forney’s Planning & Zoning Commission, his time as the President of the Forney Economic Development Corporation Board, and notably as a council member for the Forney City Council from 1992 to 1994.
