"The Place 5 race features Lisa Marie Coppoletta, Shaune Maycock and Ryan Thomason.
Coppoletta, an academic adviser at Texas State, said she favors limiting urban sprawl and increasing the number of green jobs in the community. An opponent of incentives to Springtown and city subsidies for outlet mall advertising, Coppoletta, who lost to Place 4 Council Member Chris Jones in the 2008 election, said she'd like to build up local businesses instead."
