Candidates contend for Linda Koop’s position

KoopTwo candidates are competing for the District 11 city council seat of Linda Koop now that her term is expired.

Former District 11 Dallas Park Board Member Lee Kleinman resigned December 2012 specifically to run for Linda Koop’s position. Koop initially appointed Kleinman to the Park Board. Kleinman is chief operating officer and principal at Bridge Metrics, where employees provide marketing tools and services for the technology channel. If elected, Kleinman wants to make sure the Valley View Center transition is successful.

Ori Raphael, vice president of business development for FreshLoc, a wireless temperature monitoring company, and is a former aid to U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions. If elected, Raphael says the first issue he would address is traffic and is confident that he’s a strong candidate for the May 11 elections.
