County Lines Aren’t Changing

Maybe you’ve noticed, Williamson County is changing. It’s growing quickly and becoming more diverse. Our county was the 4th fastest growing county in the nation from 2010-20, at 44% growth. 

Change can be hard. Earlier this week, I learned that I’ll be losing my State Representative. Politicians in far flung corners of Texas who feared Rep. Talarico–and knew they couldn’t get rid of him by voting him out–drew him out through redistricting. These partisans have made the State House map appear as if Williamson County is more Republican than it really is. 

But here’s the thing: The borders of Williamson County are not changing. Our county is trending more blue every year. In 2018, Williamson County went for Beto O’Rourke and MJ Hegar. In 2020, it sided with President Biden and Sheriff Mike Gleason.

Politicians who don’t live here are trying to paint Democrats into a corner in Williamson County. But the fact is, Independents, Republicans, and Democrats across our county–from Florence to Bartlett to Coupland to Liberty Hill–are ready for change at the top of our county government.

If you want honesty, transparency, and accountability from your county government, I am your candidate. If you want a County Judge who listens, learns, and leads, I’m asking for your support.
