Mayor Ward Office

Welcome from the Mayor's Office

Thank you for your interest in the Town of Denton.

As Mayor, I am very proud of our community. I truly believe Denton represents the best of "small town America," and that Denton is a great place to raise a family, start a business, or to just visit as you are passing through.

What makes Denton unique is the wonderful citizens that choose to call Denton home. More than 1,600 people live here, and every one of them contributes to making our community special. We have experienced a positive population growth since 2000, which we attribute to an expanded awareness of all Denton has to offer.


As the Mayor of Denton, I am the highest-elected Town official. What that means is that I have a great responsibility to represent the town with honor and dignity, and to serve the citizens any way I can. I take my responsibilities seriously and consider it an honor to be your Mayor.

I am available to represent the Town in ribbon-cutting ceremonies, business openings, and similar events. However, what I consider my most important role is serving the citizens of Denton. When you have questions and you don't know where to turn, or you have an unresolved issue with any matters related to living in Denton, I invite you to contact me. If I don't have the answers you need, I will help you find those answers. I consider it a personal responsibility to address your concerns, so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

You may contact me through any of the following means:
