“I want to be Mayor of Georgetown because I see the need, I have what it takes, and I want to help us become a community that future generations will be proud of”, (The Church and The Community, Special Mayor Edition, Page X)
- We need to Manage The Growth that is coming to Georgetown with a strategy that reduces costs and improves efficiencies, while maintaining the beauty of our historic town square, which is ranked as the most beautiful town square in Texas and one of the five greatest neighborhoods in the United States.
- Improve Public Safety. Especially with IH-35 being an artery for the movement of illegal drugs and trafficked persons, now is the time to recruit, train, and deploy more police officers to protect our beloved community.
- I see a huge need to Bring Accountability back to our taxpayers. In short, you deserve answers to your questions, those answers need to be verified, and answers need to be regularly published!
In summary, the concerned and diverse constituency of Georgetown deserve a chance to: (a) challenge the rational complacency that is negatively affecting our community, and (b) lobby for the change that is needed to redirect our trajectory. Essentially, #DadeForMayor believes our current approach to water availability, traffic, homelessness, affordability, culture preservation, community standards, and citizen engagement is not aligned with your long-term goals, and we want to be the choice that ensures we do not get “more of the same”.
Election May 02, 2023
With a childhood goal to be a Navy SEAL, and Neurosurgeon, Jonathan Dade pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, and served six years in the U.S. Navy. He found this was not his calling. Recruiters sought after him and welcomed Jonathan into PepsiCo as an Operations Manager. He quickly climbed the corporate ladder by pursuing a Master in Business (MBA), but found that was not his calling either. An upward career move to Michelin, North America, the second largest tire manufacturer in the world brought him to Austin Texas, but it became clear Jonathan needed to prepare for kingdom building rather than corporate building by pursuing a Master of Theology Degree (MTS). During the program, Jonathan’s mission was made clear – be the leader who brings values, transparency, strategy, and kindness to the communities in which he serves. Ultimately, this meant entering ministry, as well as being involved politically.
Jonathan, Melinda, Karissa (born 2011), Tristen (born 2012), the Rhodesian Ridgeback (Chaya), and a flock of mostly Buff Orpington chickens live in the Oakcrest II Neighborhood of Georgetown, Texas. Outside of Jonathan’s unifying work with Messiah Echad and RLB Echad, he enjoys road cycling, target shooting, and visiting local wineries, usually— safely—in that order.
