Chad West

Dallas City Council, District 1

Chad will continue to fight for his community on the Dallas City Council!


Oak Cliff neighbor elected neighborhood entrepreneur, veteran, and father Chad West to represent us on the Dallas City Council in 2019 and re-elected him to a second term in 2021. A U.S. Army combat veteran and 2006 honors graduate of Texas Tech School of Law, Chad opened his first business in Oak Cliff in 2010.

Chad is well-known as a community philanthropist, conducting annual school supply drives and Halloween costume and bucket drives for neighborhood children. Chad is also the co-founder of the Dash for the Beads 5K/10K race, which has raised nearly $500,000 for health, wellness, and nutrition programming at local schools. In 2020, the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce selected him as the Public Servant of the Year.

Chad’s passion for Oak Cliff comes from his own values as a father to his 5- and 6-year-olds, from his desire to make our streets, sidewalks, and parks safe and accessible to all children, and from his goal of preserving our neighborhoods for generations to come.
