Two more candidates have filed to replace Mark Clayton as the City Council District 9 representative. District 9 surrounds much of White Rock Lake and includes sections of Mockingbird, Skillman and Northwest Highway.
East Dallas residents Paul Sims and Paula Blackmon already threw their hats in the ring. Now Sarah Lamb and Erin Moore also are vying for the seat.
Lamb is the co-founder of Lakewood Citizens for Responsible Traffic, a grassroots campaign that recently lobbied against a reverse T design at the intersection of East Grand Avenue, Gaston Avenue and Garland Road. According to her campaign website, she plans to focus on public safety, improving road infrastructure, expanding Interstate 30 and Highway 78 and preserving White Rock Lake.

Moore has lived in the area for 27 years and held leadership roles in several Stonewall Democrat groups, which help elect pro-LGBT candidates and lobby for LGBT issues. She’s currently executive assistant to Dallas County Commissioner Theresa Daniel. Learn more about her here.
