Fowler seeks re-election

 

DeWitt County Judge Daryl L. Fowler announces his intent to run for re-election in the Republican Primary in 2014.
 
“The challenges of the Eagle Ford Shale have only multiplied since I was sworn into office in January 2011 and after three years of continuous effort to get the Texas Legislature to acknowledge responsibility for the damaged roads, DeWitt County is preparing to implement SB 1747 which is the new program that will provide state funding for roads damaged by oilfield activity. I am compelled by a sense of responsibility to ask the voters for another term in office in order to implement the new program and see the road conditions improve. And, while the challenges are great, I want everyone to know that I enjoy the work I do for the county and I appreciate the confidence that has been  placed in me during these first three years in office.”
