Patrick Lawler

City Administrator

Patrick attended Texas A&M University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Political Science with a minor in Business Administration. Soon after, he continued his education at the University of North Texas where he received his Master of Public Administration.

His municipal career began in Houston, where he was a part of a park maintenance crew in a small special district. While at Texas A&M, his passion for civil service was strengthened as an intern in the City Manager's Office with the City of Bryan, TX. Since then, he has served in various positions with the City of Fort Worth, The Colony, and Denton County.

In 2007, Patrick began working for the City of Hudson Oaks as the Assistant to the City Administrator. In 2008, he was promoted to Director of Operations and then Assistant City Administrator in 2010. Three years later, the Hudson Oaks City Council of 2013 appointed Patrick as the City Administrator, and he happily remains in this role today.

Patrick’s best moments are spent with his wife Jennifer, who is the Dean of Academics at Birdville High School, and his two boys, Mason and Sutton.
