On Saturday, May 5, 2018, the registered voters of Bertram, Texas will have a choice to make. The choice of who they feel will best represent them and our great city as Mayor. My name is Danielle Armknecht and I am proud to be running for Mayor of Bertram.

When we moved here nearly five years ago, it didn’t take long for me to get involved locally. It’s been three years since I began volunteering as the Bertram’s Free Library Thrift Store Manager, which helps our community in a multitude of ways. Sitting on the Bertram Chamber of Commerce as Co-Secretary and being a member of the Economic Development Committee has really helped me to further reach out to our community. I am currently leading a task force to provide a Blessing Box for those who have less within our town.

I am entering my 6th season as volunteer YMCA Youth Soccer Team Coach for my children (Natalie 9, Charlie 7). Previously working with special needs children is where I first discovered my love of helping others. I’ve found it especially rewarding to give a helping hand up to those who need it most.
In my heart, lies the City of Bertram. As Mayor, I promise to be present full time. I get so energized envisioning a greater future under my leadership. When thinking of Bertram, we sometimes think of our individual strengths but, it’s the sum of our strengths as a whole, that makes us strong.
My goal is to make sure the City of Bertram does more with little. Our resources are limited and yet needs are great. Running our government in the most efficient way possible is necessary for us to thrive and prosper. Ensuring our infrastructure, such as our roads and water, are maintained properly and upgraded, is essential. Having quality police coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, will greatly improve the safety and protection of our community. Our most valuable resource is the people who choose to call Bertram home.

I started out by saying on May 5, there will be a choice. The reality is, I am the clear choice. Sometimes politics can seem so small but the choice we’re facing couldn’t be bigger. We’ve heard all the other promises before. We’ve tried them and they haven't lived up to expectations. I am asking for your support so the citizens of Bertram can truly have opportunities like never before. The time for change is now. Thank you for helping pave the road to a #STRONGERBETTERBERTRAM
