Home > News > Keating wins Frisco

It worked: in the Frisco, TX City Council run-off race, John Keating beat incumbent Jim Joyner. Keating supported a Tea Party petition to reconsider funding for the Collin County Arts Hall, approved in 2002, successfully using Joyner’s support for the arts as a political Achilles’ heel in the  otherwise tight race. Although the Frisco city council rejected the widely-publicized petition on June 4,  When asked if the tea party would prepare another petition, Tes Party leader Lorie Medina, said, “We feel like we made our statement.”
