ARLINGTON, TX - January 18, 2017. Reintroducing District 3 to meaning and insightful leadership that is truly community focused tops the list of goals for community leader Marvin Sutton as he announces his candidacy for Arlington City Council. Marvin has a refreshing and dynamic approach to addressing the needs and concerns of people in southeast Arlington.  Marvin, a career air traffic controller with the Federal Aviation Administration and a United States Air Force veteran, is ready to serve and ready to lead this great city in a direction that embraces aggressive public safety, transportation, economic, and environmental solutions. 

Marvin, a twenty-five year resident of Arlington, crime watch coordinator, community activist, election judge, and former candidate, has the depth, insight, wisdom, and vision needed to create a safer, smarter and greener city.

He’s a proud member of National Society of Collegiate Scholars, American Institute of Certified Public Accountant, and National Air Traffic Controllers Association.

Marvin has a passion for helping youth achieve their full potential.

Candidate Forum Hosted by the Arlington Republican Club ARLINGTON, TX - March 26, 2015.  Marvin Sutton, Robert Rivera, and Daniel Melendez attended the Arlington Republican Club forum at Humperdink's. After an opening statement from each candidate, the moderator, Dale Attebery, asked questions pertaining to camera enforced red lights and investment in the Great Southwest Industrial District. The candidates agreed that an invest in the Southwest Industrial District made good business sense. On the red lights issue, Robert and Daniel opposed the use of the camera enforced operation while Marvin tended to remain neutral until he's able to review more data on the subject. Marvin believes that the primary role of our government is public safety. Mr. Sutton said his campaign will take an official position on the issue in the upcoming weeks.
