Irving City Council candidate Sunil Mosa: ‘New faces, new energy, new ideas’

Irving City Council Place 4 candidate Sunil Mosa strives to be the face of change that he believes his community desperately needs.

“I believe the Irving community needs new faces, new energy and new ideas for its upliftment and development at this time,” Mosa told the Dallas Express after formally launching her campaign.

Running against nonpartisan incumbent Phil Riddle in the May 1 election, Mosa said his vision for the community is a simple one.

“Ensuring that people’s voices and opinions are heard in the city council,” he said of the kind of representation she plans to bring to the district. “I will be a responsible representative, working with a dream to bring changes, offer support and help with the change needed for the citizens of the Irving community.”

With communities across the state and the country still reeling from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mosa said he has no doubt about which issues are most pressing for tired and frustrated residents of the district.

“Promoting small businesses and ensuring the safety of youth and community neighborhoods,” he said of her platform.

Now serving his second term, Riddle has held the Place 4 seat since 2015. The lifelong Irving resident entered the world of politics after serving 32 years with the Irving Fire Department and rising to the rank of captain.

He also serves as chair to the Public Safety Committee, the Community Services Committee and the Transportation and Natural Resources Committee.

After being forced into a runoff, Riddle won re-election by capturing a shade over 57% of the vote against incumbent Joe Putnam.
