The Frisco (TX) Alumni Chapter (FAC) of Kappa Alpha Psi, Fraternity, Incorporated sponsored a political candidate forum to help enlighten the citizenry of Frisco, Texas on the issues, viewpoints, and priorities of the candidates running for Mayor, City Council (places 5 & 6) and Frisco ISD School Board. The forum was held on Saturday, March 23, 2023, from 2 pm to 4 pm at Collin College 9700 Wade Boulevard in Frisco. The candidates, shown at the top of the picture above, participated in the forum. The list of candidates, in no particular order, is as follows:


Mayoral Candidate

  • Jeff Cheney


City Council Candidates

  • Laura Rummel, Place 5

  • Answer Azam, Place 5

  • Brian Livingston, Place 6


Frisco ISD Trustee Candidates

  • Dynette Davis, Place 4

  • Mark Hill, Place 5

The forum, which was open to the public free of charge, was expertly moderated by Brother Sean Washington who managed the questions to the candidates and maintained an orderly process throughout. It also provided an opportunity for the residents of Frisco to ask questions and listen to answers directly from the people that will serve to shape their community. When asked what was gained by having that level of access to the candidates, FAC Chapter Polemarch Keith Maddox replied, “I believe the citizens of Frisco got an opportunity to interact with the candidates and present questions of their choosing. More importantly, I believe it gave the community an opportunity to recognize that we (FAC) are here in the community and willing to work to contribute to the well-being of the community, especially as Black men. Bottom line, it gave a positive image of the chapter and what we are capable of doing and the influence we will have in the community.”


Also, in keeping with FAC’s commitment to service and education to the broader community, those in attendance were enlightened with a discussion on voter education and the importance of local elections. Brother William Langford, Political Committee Chairman stated, “The forum definitely supported FAC's commitment of service and education to the broader community as we were able to convene a forum that allowed our community to engage with key political figures and candidates in the Frisco community that have a direct impact on important issues that affect residents. I also believe that the forum educated residents on issues and opportunities that they otherwise would not have known and will help them make decisions on who they will support. The forum also educated the community on the importance of voting in local elections.”
