Wright Enterprises E-News Highlights Dallas Mayoral Candidate & San Francisco Mayor & More
W.E. Community Spotlight joins philanthropist, scientist, seasoned leader Lynn McBee on the campaign trail, shares news of "Paris of the West," SF Mayor London Breed, African business opportunities, & other community news at www.wrightnow.biz.
On May 4th, Dallas may have its fourth female Mayor in Lynn McBee. After a day volunteering at McBee's campaign headquarters, I saw her in action at Gateway Church in North Dallas. Noting the Dallas Morning News endorsed McBee as Mayor, additional affirmation of her leadership came at the "Youth Believing in Change" event honoring philanthropists, Sylvia and Dennis Turnbull.
McBee was the keynote speaker. She talked about "Youth Believing in Change (YBC)," the accomplishments of the Turnbull's raising over $3 million dollars in short order to sustain and stabilize YBC, and the amazing on-going life changing work of founders Vince and Angela Gaddis.
I witnessed something rarely seen during the final days of a political campaign. McBee encouraged the audience to financially support YBC and she said she would lead the way with a gift of $5,000. Instead of asking for financial support for her campaign, the former research scientist & biotech executive, now head of a statewide educational non profit (and Texas is a big state), chose to give away money. The President of The Marketing Collaborative in Dallas, Winsor Barbee's introduction of McBee as a bold leader was affirmed at that very moment of the event. What's the old saying, "putting your money where your mouth is?
For more about McBee's initiatives that include 1) growing the police department
2) improving streets and Dallas' overall infrastructure and 3) improving the schools, visit www.lynnmcbee.com.
I first met Lynn McBee when she chaired the Dallas International Film Festival in 2012. She is described by many who have benefited from her 25 years of rolling up her sleeves as "a servant leader." My 2012 article that included a mention of McBee was posted in W.E. Community Spotlight and the San Francisco Bayview Newspaper.
