🌱 City Council Election Results + Women’s History Month Books

Hello again, McKinney-Frisco! Important Update: All of you, as readers, have made the McKinney-Frisco Daily such a success that I am honored to announce the next phase of the newsletter. The fix is looking for a local writer and entrepreneur to lead the McKinney-Frisco Daily. While I enjoyed getting to know this community, we want to pass the torch to someone truly local to write about McKinney-Frisco for the long term. So if you want to earn extra income while making this newsletter a more valuable resource for your neighbors, learn more and apply here.


First, today’s weather forecast:

Partly sunny and windy. High: 81 Low: 62.


Here are McKinney-Frisco’s top 3 stories today:

  1. According to Star Local Media, the new City Council member for Frisco Place 5 will be Laura Rummel. Community members voted this weekend between Rummel and former Frisco City Council member Tracie Reveal Shipman in a runoff election. Unofficial results would show Rummel with 51% of the vote.

  2. In honor of Women’s History Month, Frisco Public Library has shared some of its staff’s favorite books for teens and young people! The books on this list are written by authors who identify women and are perfect to read with your children. (Press Release Office)
  3. Do you or your children frequently suffer from migraines? If so, you know how painful it can be. The North Texas Institute for Neurology and headaches in Frisco wants to help. To expand their migraine research, they need migraine patients between the ages of 12 and 17 to volunteer for a clinical trial. Participants must meet the required age, have at least one migraine per month and have at least six months history of migraines. (Featured local media)

Today in McKinney-Frisco:

  • Free fitness classes At McKinney Parks and Recreation (12:15 p.m.)
  • Digital bullet journal (ages 14+) At the John and Judy Gay Library (7:00 p.m.)

From my notebook:

  • To verify this new nightclub at Hub 121 at McKinney’s Craig Ranch. ChopShop McKinney Sports Garage offers ample seating indoors and on two levels of patios, a TV, game room, attached wine cellar, Wine A Little McKinney and, of course, a full menu. (Instagram)
  • Teachers are heroes for students and families in many ways, but McGowen’s 5th grade math and science teacher, Michael Steiner, recently became a hero in the most literal sense of the word when one of his students started choking on a snack. When Michael saw that she couldn’t breathe, he sprang into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver, saving her life. The MISD Board of Trustees recognized Michael for his quick response in coming to the aid of this student during a moment of real danger. (Facebook)
  • TRAFFIC ADVISORY for today (March 28)! TxDOT sets up a temporary road closure at Custer Road and Prosper Trail beginning at 5 a.m. Traffic will be diverted to Coit Road when TxDOT implements a traffic change to the new Custer Road carriageway. Prosper Trail is expected to reopen around 3 p.m. Drivers are advised to seek an alternative route during this time and to follow posted signage. (Facebook)
