Spirit: Arlington’s can-do spirit has been demonstrated many times over with big initiatives throughout its history.

“Whether faced with criticism or success, it is all about innovating. It’s about stepping out and seeing the future, seeing where you want to take your brand and how you want to expand it. Together the Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium, and the City of Arlington can do just that.”

Spirit: Arlington’s can-do spirit has been demonstrated many times over with big initiatives throughout its history.

“Arlington is hometown. It’s where I grew up. It’s where I went to school. But more than that, it’s given me the opportunity to grow my business. I know we are in the middle of a wonderful metropolitan area between Dallas and Fort Worth. But, Arlington is its own unique city. It’s the complete city for work and play.”

- Randy Ford, J. Gilligan’s Bar & Grill Owner

“To me the American Dream means opportunity. It means the chance to be whatever you want to be, as you want to be it, when you want to be it. And I think Arlington affords you that opportunity to do whatever you want to do.”

- Victor Vandergriff, Community Leader and son of former Mayor Tom Vandergriff
