GOP leader enters Montgomery County Precinct 2 Commissioner race
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- Conroe businessman Brian K. Dawson recently announced he will enter the race for Commissioner, Precinct 2.
Dawson has worked in politics over the last decade and has spent the past year expressing his concern for the leadership on the Montgomery County Commissioners Court.
'As a resident of the 7th fastest growing county in the country, it is imperative to rein in spending, develop a more workable mobility plan, halt the tax-and-spend culture the court has adopted and cease reactive governing to the growth challenges,' Dawson said in his announcement. He added, 'In making this announcement, I am also going to insist on a clear and closely followed ethics standard by everyone on the Court.'
Dawson went on to explain that when people are constantly concerned about legal or avoidance issues, it takes away from their ability to properly govern and think outside the box about new solutions for a fast-growing county.
Dawson earned a BBA in Marketing from Stephen F. Austin University and is on the Board of the Stephen F. Austin Alumni Association. He is a member of the Montgomery County Fair Association and is also a member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo CWW Go Texan Committee. Recognized by many party activists in Montgomery County as a GOP leader for a number of years, he is also a member of the Texas Young Republicans, the Montgomery County Young Republicans and is also a Past President of MCYR.
Aside from his non-profit contributions, Brian is in sales of engineered solutions and he and his wife, Amber, live in Jacobs Reserve off of FM 1488.
Dawson continued about the campaign, 'I'm looking forward to the race and to showing the residents of Precinct 2 zero-based budgeting, an expanded pay-as-you-go budget system and maximizing our partnerships that work with the county, are all very viable options for us. And, we can do it while cleaning up our ethics issues in the county.'
Dawson ran for Commissioner of Precinct 3 in 2012when the incumbent opted to not seek re-election. Despite having lost the race, Brian was endorsed by The Courier. He looks forward to another lively race with a new determination to solve the problems of both Precinct 2 and Montgomery County, as a whole.
