Jared Patterson’s values are rooted in a firm relationship with Jesus Christ and a dedication to upholding the constitution, promoting personal responsibility and restraining government spending and regulation. Jared served his community concurrently on the Sachse City Council and Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors from 2009 to 2013. In 2012, his peers elected him to serve as Mayor Pro Tem, the second-highest position within the local government.
During his time in office, Jared fought to cut wasteful spending, implement zero-based budgeting and multi-year budgeting and to dramatically increase transparency. He also instigated adding a prayer and the pledges of allegiance to open all city board meetings. While on council, the City of Sachse became one of the first cities in Texas to utilize E-Verify, ensuring that all of the city employees are in the country legally. Sachse also addressed major infrastructure issues by completely rebuilding over a dozen city streets and refurbishing major water storage facilities. Additionally, during Jared’s tenure, the community realized the largest economic development growth in history – securing major brands like Walmart, AutoZone, McDonalds, Subway, Hallmark and the Sachse Regional Medical Center; a for-profit hospital which will be the anchor for development along the President George Bush Turnpike District.
