To the editor,
Jeff Barton is my guy for Hays County Judge
Why would anyone not vote for Jeff Barton? He and his family have lived in Hays County for generations. He comes from a family that has worked hard and contributed to Hays County. He is a good family man with a working wife and two great kids. In addition, just take a look at what Jeff has done for us.
Accountability – Jeff sets the standard for transparency in government and respect for taxpayers. Jeff has refused the pay raise recommended by an independent citizen review panel. We who depend on our Social Security checks appreciate that, since we probably won’t get an increase in our checks for the second straight year. Jeff has shown us his leadership and management skills as we have seen Hays County growing at a rapid rate while he has held the line on taxes.
Transportation – My family probably mirrors most families who travel FM 1626 each morning, rushing to jobs, universities and other schools. Jeff participates in many meetings dealing with the infamous 1626, always working to make this and other roads safer for us all. He has been our elected official who has no problem taking on Travis County opposition and TxDot delays in our effort to keep FM 1626 and SH 45 alive.
Jobs – It’s so important to all of us for our families to find jobs close to home. Jeff has worked closely with economic development folks to bring jobs to us. Kyle watched closely as Seton Medical Center-Hays rose up from a bare hill to a state of the art medical facility bringing many good paying jobs to the medical center and related services. Jeff helped make that happen.
I’m voting for Jeff Barton for Hays County Judge.
