San Angeloan Announces Bid for Tom Green County Commissioner
SAN ANGELO, TX – San Angelo engineer Cary Houston plans to file as a candidate for Tom Green County Commissioner for Precinct One, which serves the northeast portion of the county.
According to information from his campaign, Houston feels that his extensive experience as an engineer and engineering project manager can greatly benefit the residents of the precinct he calls home. Commissioners are responsible for the budgeting and oversight of road maintenance as well as major construction projects like the jail. Houston has pledged to “…help get the most benefit for your tax dollars in all the projects and maintenance the county oversees.”
He served as a project manager at Ethicon, where he worked for over 30 years, and has operated his own firm, MCH Engineering, for over 20 years.
Describing himself as “conservative and family oriented,” Houston and wife Carla has been married for 42 years and have five daughters and seven grandchildren. Houston graduated from Central High School, holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University and is a licensed Professional Engineer.
Houston is no stranger to politics or to public service; he spent 12 years on the Miles ISD School Board, four of those as president. He has also served for ten years on the board of MHMR Services for the Concho Valley and on the Texas Council of Community Centers for six years.
Houston has been actively meeting Precinct One residents and building up support for several months. Local businessman Jim Bob Harris will serve as treasurer of his campaign.
The first day to officially file as a candidate for the March 202 Primary is November ninth.
Long time Pct. 1 commissioner Ralph Hoelscher is the incumbent Republican. Hoelscher has not publicly said if he is seeking reelection in the March Republican primary.
