How long have you lived in Somervell County? 54 years.

Have you ever run for public office before? I served as mayor of Glen Rose in the 1990s and ran for Commissioner Precinct 1 in 1992.

What is the most important thing you want to do in office, if elected? “If I have the privilege to serve the citizens of Precinct 1, I plan to be available as a full time commissioner and will be actively looking to recruit small businesses into our community as well as support the current businesses with a fiscally conservative approach.  I would like to hold quarterly roundtable meetings with the citizens to gather their input and concerns as well.”
