ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 11, 2023) Longtime Rockwall resident and businessman Tim McCallum announced today he intends to run for Rockwall City Council, Place 1, in the May 6, 2023, general elections, a seat he formerly held.
McCallum is well known for his service to his community, having been twice awarded the Presidential Volunteer Service Award, for his many hours of service to various local and national organizations. Since moving to Rockwall in 2000, he has served in a variety of offices and volunteer positions, including:
- Rockwall City Council 2003-2008
- Rockwall City Council Mayor Pro Tem
- Rockwall Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors.
- Cain Middle School PTA President
- Rockwall Heath HS HBO President
- The Oaks of Buffalo Way HOA President
McCallum seeks to rejoin the Rockwall City Council at this critical time to bring strong leadership to one of the state’s fastest growing cities. As Rockwall grows his collaborative management of development is needed to prevent excessive high-density projects.
“As Rockwall continues its fast-paced growth, we need to focus on keeping density low, standards high and have a high sense of urgency to address infrastructure needs,” explained McCallum. :”I recently led a group of citizens against a development that was far too dense and not appropriate for its area. The planning and zoning commission had passed the development in its original form, despite the opposition of 100% of residents in the affected area.”
McCallum was able to work to cut the density significantly and bring a plan to the table that residents, the developers and the city could agree upon.
McCallum recognizes the challenges facing Rockwall as it grows, including bringing common sense and collaboration to issues including traffic, infrastructure, development and support of the local business community. As a strong fiscal conservative, he is firmly committed to protect Rockwall citizens from runaway tax hikes during this financially uncertain time and high home valuations.
McCallum currently leads a dynamic team of high-tech professionals as president of Raze Media, a Dallas-based digital marketing agency. Prior to working in digital marketing, McCallum was the Chief Marketing Officer for Incomm International and had an award-winning career in the retail sector as an executive for 7-Eleven, Inc. where he gained appreciation for the everyday challenges facing business owners.
He and his wife Jennifer also own and operate He Wines She Dines, a private winery and wine club in Rockwall. They are members of the First United Methodist Church in Rockwall and have two children, Caroline and Andrew.
