Steven Ingram wants to replace Joe Smith as Sherman City Councilor for District 1 this November. Ingram is a North Texan from the Sherman and Whitesboro area who has lived in Sherman for two years.


Ingram said he is running for a spot on the Council "to serve and be a voice to all residents of this community." Ingram said, "I firmly believe that every resident can contribute to our city by getting involved with local government… I wish to serve on the City Council because I believe that every neighborhood that collectively makes our city counts and should be considered in future economic developments."


Ingram and his wife have three children between the ages of 19 and 25. Ingram is an insurance salesman and has been in the sales field for 25 years. Ingram said, "I firmly believe in the Judeo-Christian values that the United States of America was founded (on). The family is the foundation of our society and is responsible for its own welfare, education, and moral training."


Ingram said he is against "high tax loads" and that to accomplish his goals for the city he would "find ways to attract and promote our city to potential employers… to ensure that small businesses have a voice in local government and to protect their business interests."


Sherman voters will elect new members for City Council in District 1 and District 3 in November, when sitting members Joe Smith and Deputy Mayor Pamela Howeth reach their term limits and step down from the Council.
