Texas Family Project Endorses Carol Scarborough for Collin County Commissioner Precinct 1
Updated: Feb 13, 2020
Texas Family Project is proud to endorse Carol Scarborough for Collin County Commissioner Precinct 1.
Collin County is in North Texas whose county seat is in the city of McKinney. It is the seventh most populous county and contains part of Plano, Frisco, Richardson Garland, Dallas as well as others. The county commissioner is responsible for roads and bridges within their precinct and makes policy-making budget decisions. Here is a little bit about Carol and why we think she is the best person for the job.
“I’m a retired banking executive, a Mom, and a cancer survivor. I’m also a high school dropout and a single parent. And now, a political candidate. Throughout our lives, people attach labels to us, and those labels may reflect how others think about our identities as well as how we think about ourselves. My life history is the sum of my “labels”, some positive, some not so positive, but the story of my life is one of beating the odds, overcoming challenges and I’m very proud and grateful for the life I’ve lived”
“I understand what it takes to overcome challenges, to have the right mindset for success, to set goals, build coalitions, and get results. My whole life I have beaten the odds when they were stacked against me. When I was 12 years old, my mother passed away after a long illness. This devastated my family, but especially my father who had to take on the role of the sole caretaker of me and my siblings. Growing up poor, I understand the challenges faced by struggling families every day and difficult choices one must make. I left high school prior to graduation out of necessity and went to work to help provide for my siblings. It’s an odd twist of fate that one of the most devastating events in my life catapulted me into some of my greatest successes. I gained my education through real world experience. I spent my career in banking, working my way up and eventually retired as a Senior Vice President. I was the beneficiary of many mentors and role models throughout my career. I value collaboration and teamwork.”
“As a single parent, I struggled financially and emotionally to provide for my only child. To buy a home, provide security and educational opportunities. The struggle is real. And can’t be minimized. Nearly twenty years ago, I again had to face very a significant challenge when I was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML- Acute Myeloid Leukemia) and faced a very poor prognosis. I’m acutely aware of the devastation of medical crisis on uninsured or underinsured families. My entire life has been about fighting and beating the odds and I don’t think this time is any different. Now, I’m a political candidate (my current label) and I am ready to harness my fighting spirit to ensure the people in my district are represented fairly and equally. With compassion and fiscally responsible solutions. I’m excited to have this opportunity to use my life skills as public servant to the people of Collin County.”
