Zimmerman to open office in District 6
Tuesday, April 7, 2015 by Jo Clifton
Last week, City Council Member Don Zimmerman announced that he would be opening a field office for District 6 at The Crossing on Anderson Mill Road. In a news release, Zimmerman said he plans to lease the office for an initial period of six months in order to gauge its effectiveness. According to Zimmerman’s chief of staff, Joe Petronis, the Council member will be able to open the office without increasing his budget by “restructuring his Council personnel.” At the same time, Zimmerman’s constituent liaison, Trent Pool, has left the city to return to campaign work, Petronis said. The new person in that role is Nuvia Devine, who worked on Zimmerman’s campaign and is married to Texas Supreme Court Justice John Devine. She will be in the City Hall office for only a short period of time before going to the District 6 field office, according to aide Gregory Watson.
