Back in the saddle

Despite being felled by a major stroke in January shortly after Granbury Mayor Rickie Pratt suffered the same fate, deCordova Mayor Dick Pruitt has filed for re-election, according to City Secretary Sylvia Hickey. She said that the mayor’s memory “has never been affected,” and his speech is improving. “He’s doing really well,” she said Monday (Aug. 12). Pruitt was deCordova’s first – and only – mayor. If he wins re-election, it will be his seventh term, Hickey said.
