As a lifetime resident of Caldwell County, Texas, I have a vested interest in attracting and influencing the path for which improvements of our living standards are attributed to slow economic growth and/or tougher times.
I believe that local government is to provide the services and infrastructure needed for its citizenry to prosper and I will achieve this recovery by using fiscally responsible practices; seek community input, court private businesses that will enhance employment and adapt positive life style alternatives that seek to restore growth. I will court public/civil service agencies that will unwittingly support our values for Caldwell County’s economic well being.
Together with our distinguished commissioner’s court it will be our intention to develop a basic structure to shape this county into the most desirable county in the State of Texas complete with a balanced approach and effective leadership to solve.
If you will allow me to this opportunity to serve the citizenry of Caldwell County, Texas, present and future, I will promise you that this governing body will do its utmost to justify your trust.
My love for this county is beyond any physical deed, act or accomplishment.
I love its people, its culture, its geography and its destiny. I will be dedicating my life to Caldwell County while encouraging growth, development and a higher standard of living for all.
