Amanda Lewis was elected Mayor in 2021.


My goals as Forney Mayor will be focused on fiscal accountability, strategic planning, commitment to first responders, road improvements, and restored relationships. I humbly take on this next role as a 'servant leader’ very seriously and am excited about Forney’s potential with a viable future. Although the Mayor role has been treated as part-time in the past, I am committed to it full-time in conjunction with continued service to my community service groups. Thank you for this honor to serve!


I have lived in Forney since 2002. I am married to a successful petroleum geologist who serves a dual role as a Christian minister. I have one teenage son and two grown stepsons. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance from Texas Tech University in 1995 and received a Master’s of Science in Healthcare Administration from Trinity University in San Antonio in 1997.

I have worked at the Dallas County Office of Budget and Evaluation and in the Parkland Health & Hospital System - having left there in the role as its Budget Director and managing multi-million dollar budgets and staff. Recently, I have turned my focus to community service as a Board Director and Treasurer with Sharing the Love Foundation (a youth empowerment group in Forney and Terrell), Board Director and Secretary for the Forney’s Economic Development Corporationa Board Director and Treasurer with Forney Community Ministries, a Board Director with Hunger Relief Ministries, and previously as a volunteer with the Genesis Center for Women and Children in Crisis in Kaufman, TX.
