City of Lockhart Elections

After spending more than two decades serving the constituents of District 2 and serving as Mayor-Pro for the City of Lockhart, I am announcing today that these next few months will be my last in the office as I have decided not run for re-election in the Nov. 2 general election. It’s been a great honor and learning experience for which I shall be forever grateful.
I am thankful by the outpouring of support and encouragement I have received from so many people and especially my family and while many have urged me to run for re-election, I believe this is the right time to leave after all these years of community service and I feel good about all of my accomplishments.
This is not an easy decision but one with which I am comfortable with. As the end of my term approaches and with the up-coming changes with work and my family, I will not be able to devote the time I believe necessary for me to be an effective council member and Mayor Pro-Tem. While I will miss working for the neighborhood and for the people of Lockhart as a whole, I am excited about future opportunities and remain committed to building the future of our city.

I sincerely hope that I have made a difference in someone’s life and the quality of our neighborhoods.
Thank you for your support, friendship and confidence.

My farewell good bye

Thank you very much Mayor.

I have so much to be thankful for.

I want to thank all of my supporters; donors; staff, friends and most of all to my family, who is always there to support me.

I want to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity he has given me to serve this community.

It certainly has been an honor, I feel so fortunate and blessed.

Second, I want to thank my family, especially my wife Gloria, for all of their support thru all the difficulties.

I want to thank all of my supporters in District 2. Unbelievable, it’s amazing!!

For 26 years, they supported me repeatedly, but I feel it is the right thing to do.

I want to take this time to thank the City of Lockhart staff and employees. It was like a second family to me after so many years. Thanks so much.

I also want to thank all of the individuals that serve under many of my committees. Some that have served my entire tenure. Wish them the best of luck!!!

And last, but certainly not least, I want to thank all of the councilmembers that serve with me and supported me. I met some wonderful people.

From Mayor Maxine Goodman, my first Mayor to Mayor John Allred who appointed me to beome his Mayor Pro-Tem and I served in that capacity for 15 yrs.

It has been a wonderful experience!!

I want to congratulate the new elected officials and wish them well.

I came in as a humble person and expect to leave the same way.

I am just grateful for the trust that my constituents place on me and I hope I did not disappoint them.

Adios and vayan con dios….
