Mayor's Message

On behalf of City Council, I would like to take a moment to welcome you to Wilmer.  Photo of Sheila Petta 2023 

As your Mayor, I want to convey how excited I am about serving you in a manner that will be productive, prosperous, and unifying. Wilmer and its residents are worthy of the best, and it is my mission to achieve great things for our community. That is my commitment to you. Together, we can move our community forward in an unprecedented manner.

Wilmer is one of the fastest growing cities within Southern Dallas County. Wilmer offers the comfort of a small town with access to the commerce of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area, as well as, both international and general aviation airports (Lancaster, DFW International, Love Field) and United Pacific Rail (UP). Wilmer is an excellent place to live, work, play, and learn. The City is continuing to explode with growth as new and improved development is occurring all around us. The City is home to Fortune 500 companies, to name a few, Procter & Gamble, Whirlpool, Ace Hardware, Medline, Amazon, Unilever, and Makita USA.

My challenge to our residents is to look for ways to get involved, solve issues and to make others around us better! As a new resident, I encourage you to get involved in your community by either serving on one of our City’s Board or Commission, or just staying abreast by attending a City Council meeting.

Thank you for making this such a special place to live and raise a family. If I can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Again, on behalf of the City Council members, welcome to Wilmer, Texas! I look forward to working with and for all of you!

Sincerely,Mayor Petta

Sheila Petta,
Mayor, CMO, City of Wilmer
