Argyle Elections: What You Need to Know

by Sarah Bays

The Town of Argyle is led by a 5-member council and a mayor as well as various boards and commissions.

Election Day for municipal offices is May 7 with early voting from April 25 to May 3.

There are three open seats on the Argyle Town Council:

  • Place 1: Joey Hasty
  • Place 3: Eric Lamon
  • Place 5: Marla Hawkesworth

Hasty, Lamon and Hawkesworth are already serving in the positions they are running for.  The term for these offices is May 2016 – May 2018.

Hasty was first elected in 2008. He is a pilot with Delta Air Lines. Hasty graduated from Nolan Catholic High School in 1994. Hasty originally ran to balance growth and how to keep Argyle a rural community.

Lamon is an engineer who built a large family business. He was first elected to office in May 2014. He is married to Cheryl, and has three sons: Brock, Mack and Mitchell.

Hawkesworth is originally from Arlington. She is married to Craig Hawkesworth. She is a partner at a commercial/residential flooring company. She studied interior design at the University of Texas.  She was first elected to office in May 2013 with a win over John Tutini.

Major issues surrounding the town include development and land ownership. The town has a comprehensive plan that seeks to align commercial and residential growth with the needs
of current residents.

Added to that, Argyle lawmakers must ensure that sufficient infrastructure is in place to support that growth. This includes road maintenance
and local taxes.

Current development projects include Canyon Falls and Canyon Falls II. Canyon Falls is a master planned community located in the Towns of Flower Mound and Northlake and the Town of Argyle Extra-territorial Jurisdiction comprising approximately 1,242 acres. Canyon Falls II is a 126-acre portion of the 1,242-acre Canyon Falls Master Planned Community located within the Town of Argyle fronting I 35W.  The community includes a mixed use of approximately 55 acres of mixed residential, 41 acres of commercial, and 10 acres of open space/park land.

Additionally, the town council recently adopted a hands-free law, which prohibits motorists in town from using electronic hand-held
devices while driving.

Major schools in Argyle include the Argyle Independent School District — Argyle High, Argyle Middle, Argyle Intermediate and Hilltop Elementary — and Liberty Christian School.
