Hello, I am
Sem Habtemariam

I want to represent YOU on the Carrolton City Council.

I chose Carrollton as the place I have called home for more than 22 years, and it is where I chose to raise my children. The time has come for me to give back and serve Carrollton and I would be honored if you support my candidacy to be the next councilmember for Place 1.

“We the people of the Unites States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish the Constitution of the United States…” (Preamble of the U.S. Constitution)

Why Me?

Why Me?

Why you should choose me over my opponent to represent you in Carrollton City Council, Place 1?

I am fiercely independent, and beholden to no interest group. I answer only to Carrollton’s residents, our valued businesses and, of course, our city’s employees.  My vision for Carrollton is to be the city of choice where people and businesses proudly call home and where the diversity of our communities is reflected in their local government. All voices must be heard because diversity matters. I am ready to routinely invite fresh and diverse perspectives from our diverse communities and serve all of Carrollton’s residents and stakeholders.

Like many people in Carrollton, I am also an immigrant, and it is my privilege to call America home, to call Texas home, to call Carrollton home.  I have sown deep roots in this community, and it is time I stand up, answer the call of duty, and serve the people of my community.

Our Mission & Vision for Carrollton City

Together we the people achieve more than any single
person could ever do alone.


We must aspire and work towards making Carrollton the safest city in the North Texas area where all residents feel secure and safe in their homes, streets, and businesses.

Promoting Business

We must aggressively pursue new businesses to Call Carrollton home. Due to Carrollton’s prime location, it can be the Mecca of dining and shopping. This is a source of revenue that Carrollton cannot afford to lose.

Community Life

People and businesses will not call Carrollton home if we do not promote a conducive environment where businesses and communities can thrive. Carrollton must be a city of choice where neighborhoods, parks, rails, roads, and sidewalks are second to none.

Service and Response Time

Service and construction works are taking longer than what most residents believe is reasonable. It is important that we find more efficient ways of responding to service requests and doing the actual work in a timely manner therefore avoiding unnecessary inconvenience to people and traffic.

Early voting is April 25- May 3 & Election Day May 7, 2022
