History in Lucas

Councilmember Lawrence and his wife Lisa along with sons, Philip Jr. and Jonathan (and don’t forget their pet lab Sadie) purchased a home in Lucas about nine years ago, decided to move from Los Angeles, California, and make the City of Lucas their home. The open spaces and country living lifestyle, along with the fact that Lucas has one of the top rated exemplary school districts in North Texas, Councilmember Lawrence and Lisa felt this to be the “best place on earth” to bring and raise their children who were six and nine at the time. Councilmember Lawrence and his family have found the residents of Lucas to be the most warm and welcoming (that’s what you have to love about Texas) folks they have ever had the pleasure to meet and know. Councilmember Lawrence looks forward to continuing to be a vital part of Lucas’ future by helping to ensure the city continues to “KEEP IT COUNTRY”!
