Bio:

Doug graduated from Frenship High School in 1972.  In 1963, his parents built a house in town, and they moved from the farm when Doug was nine years old. His parents were very active in the Wolfforth community before and after moving here.  Both were members of the church, his mother worked for FISD, and his father was a city council member for several years.  Him and his wife Kay attend Wolfforth Methodist church.  They have 2 daughters and 7 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. 

Doug farmed for several years before deciding to pursue a different career.  He applied for and was hired by City of Wolfforth in January 1983 as the Assistant Director of Public Works.  He obtained both water and wastewater licenses while working for the city.  He was a member of the volunteer fire and EMS department.  When Director of Public Works, Roe Dalton, retired in 1984, he was promoted to the Public Work’s Director position. 

When Doug started with the city, it had a population of around 1500 people.  At that time, all water meters were read by hand.  During his years with the city, he has seen a lot of growth, including building and maintaining three water towers, a water treatment plant, numerous water well acquisitions, and a wastewater treatment plant.  Doug has seen the development of numerous subdivisions and many changes within the FISD campuses.  The public works department went from 3 employees to 10 while he was in charge.   

Doug retired from the city in December of 2019 after 36 years of service.  Wolfforth is a great place to work and raise a family.  Doug decided to run for city council in 2021, so that he could stay involved with the community and help with the development of Wolfforth.  He is currently serving his second term.
