Fourth grader to serve as Mayor for a Day

Mayor for a Day

Colleyville Heritage Elementary School’s Sydney Ellis submitted the winning essay for this year’s Mayor for a Day contest.

Mayor Richard Newton and city staff judges chose the fourth grader’s essay for its ideas on making Colleyville an even better place to live. Sydney’s ideas included many aspects to make Colleyville a community such as a focus on nature, parks, safety, helping others, creating traditions, and listening to others.

Sydney will serve as Mayor for a Day where she will learn what it takes to run a city by working directly with various departments. She will also co-run a future City Council worksession and meeting, and host a private pizza party at City Hall.

Congratulations to Sydney and thank you to all our applicants.
