Due to my many opportunities of employment over the years, I have gained a wealth of valuable knowledge and experience in many fields that will assist me in the position of Commissioner. The years I spent working for the county in Precinct #2 and #3 have given me an insight to the day to day operation of the jobs that are required to be performed for building and maintaining the county roads and bridges. I am passionate about my work and dedicated and look forward to continuing a career in Hopkins County by serving as Commissioner of Precinct 2. I have knowledge and working experience to share with the members of the Commissioners Court. I know the roads and many of the residents in Precinct 2 and understand the concerns of the residents that live in the country and drive on the county roads. I am very aware of the challenges that face us to improve our county roads. I live off on County Road # #2466, which is just off of #2321, in Precinct #2. Please note that any statement made is not said in a derogative manner against the current commissioner.
I look forward to serving and representing Precinct #2 as well as all the citizens in Hopkins County. I will work hands on with my crew and we will work diligently to improve and maintain the county roads and bridges. I will not ask any of my employees to do anything that I would not do myself. I will be understanding of all county employee needs and concerns not just my road crew. I understand the need for a good and happy employee. I will uphold all the responsibilities of the position of Commissioner of Precinct 2 and the duties of serving on the Commissioner’s court. I will represent, support, and lend my service to the Sheriff and Fire Departments as well other departments that are represented in our commissioner’s court. As a member of the Commissioners court, we will work together on balancing a budget that is beneficial to all employees and in the best interest to all departments and to all residents of Hopkins County. I will be very involved in the day to day issues any concerns that may arise and we will work to find a resolution that will solve the problem.
