The Rotary Club of Dallas is honored to have Commissioner Daniel come visit with us this week and share her stories about
the virtues and peccadilloes of Dallas County that we do not know a thing about! She was sworn in on January 3, 2013, to
represent the citizens of Dallas County Road & Bridge District 1. The newly drawn district encompasses some of the most diverse,
vibrant, and culturally rich parts of several cities in Dallas County, to include: Dallas, Richardson, Garland, and Mesquite,
so she has had a lot of work to do over the past three years!
Commissioner Daniel is Co-Chair of the Dallas County Behavioral Health Leadership Team and she has been leading an effort to develop
transitional housing for special needs populations of Dallas County residents. Commissioner Daniel's has also testified before committees on topics
important to residents of Dallas County, such as the distribution of funds for emission control programs and increasing mental health funding.
Other areas of Daniel's interest are manifested through active membership on the Conference of Urban Counties (CUC) Public Policy
committee, CUC-Meadows Foundation Statewide Mental Health Index Committee, as well as the National Association of Counties (NACO)
Public Health Committee and Urban County Committee member. Commissioner Daniel is also active in an organization addressing local
environmental interests affecting public health through the Clean Air Committee of North Texas.
Commissioner Daniel has extensive expertise in public affairs, economic development, housing, transportation, education, gerontology
and local political thought. Having obtained a Ph.D. in public policy and public administration, Dr. Daniel has been a social science researcher
and involved in public organizations for over three decades. Professionally, she served as a U.S. Congressional staff member, worked with
the American Red Cross and has focused on public education for seven years.
Prior to her election to Commissioners Court, Dr. Daniel worked with the Dallas Independent School District in program evaluation and
accountability and was also adjunct professor of urban and public affairs at UT-Arlington.
As you can see, her body of knowledge is deep and wide, so have your questions ready, as she is sure to have the answers you seek!
