|Frisco Mayor '96-'02 Kathy Seei emcees a crowded room|
Don Nelson the long time GM and President of the Dallas Mavericks is personally invested in the city of Frisco as a resident and civic voice. He knows great leadership from years rising from the shadows of his legendary father Don Nelson and many other NBA greats. He has also gotten to know the leadership of his home city and raised Bob Allen as one of those greats.
Four past Frisco mayors and a standing room only mixture of the Frisco rainbow of people felt the pause of what I would call Humility. Just before the big man with his comfortable smile and ease could offer himself as a candidate, it seemed that the whole room was aware of the gigantic step he was about to take.
Frisco has been stretching like a teenager that just reached their size and is beginning to fill in and out. Doubling the population and maintaining the connection with the community is a mission for great leadership.
