CHUCK'S PRIORITIES

A STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE FUTURE

There is no question, our community is changing rapidly and Brazos County is poised for explosive growth in the near future. The decisions our leaders make today will shape the future of our community for the next several decades. It is critical that we elect leaders who understand that we can either shape the future or the future will shape us. 

 

Interstate 14 is coming. It is coming right through Precinct 2. The Aggie Highway is coming south of town. The Health Science Center is witnessing rapid expansion and with it, the BioMedical corridor is experiencing explosive growth. 

 

During my time on the Bryan City Council, I was part of the team that laid the groundwork to bring vaccine manufacturing to Brazos County. Working in partnership with Brazos County, Texas A&M, the cities of Bryan and College Station, we set out to develop a biomedical corridor that would become a world leader in research and development, attract first-class companies, and create top-tier jobs.  Not jobs from the 1950s. Jobs for 2050. 

 

We witnessed a major step in achieving this goal when the TAMUS influenza vaccine-manufacturing center opened and the ability to research, design, and manufacture vaccines in 4 to 6 weeks became a reality.


It is imperative the next Commissioner for Precinct 2 has a deep understanding of these industries, the changes they will bring to our area, and the potential impacts to the local, state, and national economies. As your next County Commissioner, I will work diligently to ensure that we position ourselves to maximize the positive potential of the change currently on the horizon to ensure a bright future for our community.

A STRONGER AND SAFER COMMUNITY

Brazos County is currently the largest metro area in the United States that does not have direct access to the interstate highway system. Interstate 14 will be a game-changer for our county, Precinct 2, and our surrounding communities. It is critical that we begin making preparations now.

 

A major interstate highway will bring new challenges to our area that will directly affect law enforcement, emergency services, trauma centers, and medical personnel. As your next County Commissioner, I will work to ensure the funding is in place to provide the tools and resources necessary for our first responders to perform their duties efficiently and effectively.

A ROBUST LOCAL ECONOMY

We are truly blessed to live and work in a community that is thriving. As a business owner, I know firsthand the challenges the pandemic created for our local business owners, non-profit organizations, and our neighbors. We are resilient and we will continue to push forward.

 

As your County Commissioner, I will work to promote the strength of our current local economy, cultivate new growth opportunities for our county, and work to minimize local regulations that interfere with the success of local businesses. 

 

My background in business, my degree in agricultural economics, as well as my experience in pharmaceutical and biomedical technologies, has provided me with a unique perspective for the steps necessary to promote our economy. I will continue to use my ability to bring county and city officials, local business leaders, and university officials together to develop programs designed to enrich our way of life in Brazos County.


As a businessman, father, and community servant, I interact with thousands of entrepreneurs, consumers, and individuals each year. I have a deep understanding of the importance of listening to the needs of others. In my time on Bryan City Council and as County Commissioner, I learned to prioritize understanding the perspective of others through simply listening.  One of my goals as your Commissioner is to be known for my ability to listen, to help find common ground and to effectively communicate amicable resolutions.
