Tammy and her husband, Yuki, chose Colleyville as the place to raise their two children over 15 years ago. In that time, Tammy has been deeply involved in the community, from her children’s school to the Chamber, she has poured herself into Colleyville. “Tammy Nakamura is an altruistic powerhouse” is how Rita Goodner described Tammy when nominating her for the Shining Stars award. Tammy started volunteering as a teenager and simply expanded her horizons into adulthood, while raising a family and building a thriving business. Tammy's community leadership is vast and includes support of the American Cancer Society (board member), American Heart Association (board member and fundraising chair), Colleyville Woman’s Club (activist and fundraiser Chair), The Arts League and Arts Council Northeast, GRACE Gala and Advisory Board, Colleyville Chamber Citizen of the Year (’12), PTA’s at Crosstimbers, Glenhope, and GHS, Football and Cheerleader Booster Club (President), and countless other positions. With over 36 years of volunteerism, Tammy has provided significant and crucial support for the many agencies she’s championed.
“Tammy is high-energy and her enthusiasm is infectious! She inspires others and attracts legions of volunteers to her various causes where she uses her professional background in public relations, marketing and advertising to create successful projects. Not only does she provide countless volunteer hours, she also ensures the financial viability of the numerous fundraising projects she chairs through personal sponsorships and sponsorships of numerous friends in the business community. Tammy Nakamura is quite simply "a dream volunteer."
Tammy has been a business owner for 29 years. She owned and operated Chammeyville Junction Car Washes for 15 years and currently owns Accent on You Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medi Spa with her husband Yuki Nakamura, M.D. She currently is President of Natico Management Company.
Now Tammy has her eyes set on keeping Colleyville the same destination city which brought her and Yuki here 15 years ago. With her vast relationships, project oversight experience and attention to detail, Tammy will bring City Hall’s focus back to what made Colleyville great – the citizens and our great community. Tammy looks forward to earning your vote this May 7th.
Eliminating the rubber stamping mentality that has crept in. I’ll push for best practices in all areas, starting with contracts and work to be performed. Ensure good, independent, third party bids, no cronyism. Just like I do at my home or business – I get multiple bids and work towards the best value. That’s the management style I promise to bring to city hall.
As a councilor I’ll take my responsibility to be a fiduciary very seriously. This means my job is to act in the best interests of the residents of Colleyville. This includes holding the city manager accountable, vendors, and especially scrutinizing our intergovernmental agreements and contract. The city council is the boss, not the manager, not other agencies. The days of excuses and passing the buck will be over.
TexRail has been a controversial topic in Colleyville for several years now. I want to have our city LEAD towards a solution, not continue to parrot the excuses of inevitability given by the central planners. Colleyville should not be subject to an unaccountable Obama appointee. The City has a responsibility to stand up for it’s citizens. I will do just that.
I believe in “Citizen Representatives” for all levels of government. Several of our surrounding cities have term limits and it has served them well. Colleyville is plush with talented and bright citizens who have a lot to offer our city. Let them serve. I believe Benjarmin Franklin said it well when he stated: “In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors … For the former to return among the latter does not degrade, but promote them.”
