Unable to make it to Sturgis this year, the next best thing is a burger at the Circleville Store, an ice cold Orange Fanta in Hare, and a tour of Thrall.

I bet you’re wondering, “Are there many voters in Circleville, Hare, and Thrall?” Nope. But there is corn and sorghum being harvested, and cotton waiting its turn. There are longhorns. And there are hard livings to be earned on the knife’s edge between failure and success, or something close to it.

There are families with hopes and dreams for their children. There are neighbors who deserve a county government that works for them as hard as it works for those who live in Georgetown or Round Rock.

Join me in moving Williamson County forward together.
