I emailed the Mayor and asked him. He didn't see fit to return my email. So, I emailed the City Secretary and asked her. She apologized for being late getting back to me, but was gracious in informing me that 2,778 voted........and that did not include Rockwall County. In order to give residents in Rockwall County some representation, I estimated another 20% above the actual, for an estimated count of 3,333. There are approximately 37,000 registered voters in Rowlett. That meant that 9% also voted in Rowlett.
Folks, I'm really pleased with that. Could it be much better? Absolutely. But, compared to last election, it was absolutely amazing. The last election in Rowlett had 1400 voters. That was only about 3.7%. It makes me feel like someone woke up. This last performance was 2 1/2 times better than before and just as good as Dallas. That makes me feel good. It makes me feel that people from Rowlett are getting interested in their community. That is a great gift to the community.......and it's free.
