CHARLES ALWORTH

District 6 Tyler City Councilman Charles Alworth said he's ready to tackle another term in office to help continue shaping positive growth for his district and its citizens.
Alworth, 62, a patent attorney and registered professional engineer, is semi-retired and operates an international patent firm, Alworth Law and Engineering.
He is challenged by businessman Bob Peppard and petroleum salesman Kenneth Shepherd in the May 13 elections.
Alworth said he's experienced a busy first term, citing a varied list of accomplishments.
"I have a past track record of helping the citizens," Alworth said."I do not own land in the city (other than his residence) so I can represent the citizens without worrying about stepping on people's toes - I know I've not been very popular on some issues."
He lists unregulated growth and traffic congestion among his top priorities for this district, which lies in the southern area of the city.
"I've worked with the city and developers to lessen the effects of development," he said.
...
In his first term, Alworth also worked with former councilman Ron Shaffer to push through an ethics ordinance to reduce conflicts of interest between the city and people who serve on municipal boards.
...
"I'm disappointed the first part of the loop will be tolled," Alworth said."I encourage the Texas Department of Transportation to keep the first two portions free.I believe once we get traffic onto that road, they'll stay on and pay the toll."
He is a longstanding advocate of improved "curb cut" ordinances to limit the number of driveways along Broadway.
Alworth said he plans to continue protecting Tyler's natural resources by encouraging improved oversight of the city's water supply, updates to the city's tree ordinances and stricter guidelines for erosion control.
The city should rely more on input from city boards, particularly the Lake Tyler Advisory Board, which is composed of veteran oil and gas experts, he said.
The councilman said he supports the idea of development around Bellwood Lake and the creation of a convention center - using private dollars, not public.
"It's economical and makes sense, private money will usually do it," Alworth said.
He views money spent on creating the Tyler 21 Comprehensive Plan as dollars well spent.
"We need to know what's going on," he said.
...
Alworth holds a law degree from The University of Tulsa, a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma, a Master of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Oklahoma and a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Oklahoma.
He has taught electrical engineering at Texas A&M.
Alworth has served on the board of the Taxpayers Association of Smith County and both the city's electrical board and construction board of adjustment.He has also served as the assistant city prosecutor in Tyler Municipal Court.
He is married and has two children.
...
Peppard, 50, is challenging incumbent Charles Alworth in a three-way race that also includes petroleum salesman Kenneth Shepherd.
...
"If Charles or Kenneth get it, great, I'll go find another spot - maybe on one of the Tyler 21 committees."
...
Shepherd said the incumbent, Alworth, was not to blame for his dissatisfaction.
...
"I don't have a quarrel with him (Alworth)," Shepherd said."He, too, was in favor of voting on the deal, but he was not allowed a vote.He's been to the neighborhood meetings and I support him in a lot of things he's done."
Opposing Alworth in next month's election simply gives voters another choice, he said.

He pledged to support two Copeland Road homeowners who stand to loose their property to eminent domain associated with the Grande project.
"Unfortunately, I was not able to protect two homes, but I will see that these residents are protected in settlements with the city," Alworth said.

"I plan to continue our efforts to provide a good workplace for Tyler employees as this results in a better community for all," he said.
