Councilman Jungus Jordan Files For Re-Election to Fort Worth City Council District 6
Fort Worth, Texas, January 30, 2013 — City Councilman Jungus Jordan filed for re-election today, seeking an additional term representing Fort Worth City Council District 6 in south and southwest Fort Worth. During his time serving on the council, Jordan has become a respected leader on important local and regional issues, particularly public saftey, financial accountability, and transportation. In addition, Jordan is the current President-elect of the Texas Municipal League, only the fifth Fort Worth resident to earn that distinction over the 100 years of that organization's existence.
"I look forward to continuing to improve public safety in District 6 and throughout Fort Worth, as well as working to find a solution to the financial challenges that face our city" Jordan said. "I also intend to continue monitoring the progress of the Southwest Parkway until it is complete and working to find additional solutions to improve our area's traffic mobility."
Jordan stated his additional priorites during the next city council term will include continuing efforts to upgrade Fort Worth's infrastructure, protecting our neighborhoods, and ensuring that all money approved in past bond elections for road and street construction and improvements is spent as for those items as directed by the voters.
A Fort Worth native, Jungus Jordan was born at Carswell Air Force Base and graduated from local public schools and TCU. He retired from the United States Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel after serving as a senior level manager in the Office of the Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon. He is also a decorated Vietnam veteran.
After retiring from the military, Jordan worked as a Development Officer at TCU, a Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for an international marketing firm, and as a financial planner for a national financial services company. He currently works part time at a local children's hospital.
Jungus and his wife Glenda have been married for 42 years and have two adult children and two grandchildren.
