Haughey said his family and its needs have outgrown their home in the city of Forney, they will still be in the Forney community, just outside the city limits.
Brian Haughey also served as the City of Forney Bond Committee Chairman in 2006, was the President and Treasurer of the Forney Area United Way, and served on the Planning and Zoning Commission in Mesquite before moving to Forney.
