Washington County Precinct 2 Commissioner Candice Bullock has announced her intent to run for re-election next year.
Bullock was first elected in 2018 after defeating former Precinct 2 Commissioner Luther Hueske in the March Republican primary and Democrat opponent Ira Newsome in November’s general election.
Bullock said she hopes to build upon the foundation laid over her time in office thus far.
Bullock said she is proud to have helped lead the effort to use technology to aid county departments in refining their processes and functioning more efficiently. She also pointed to the county’s work on increasing employee pay.
Since being elected, Bullock has served as a court liaison for the sheriff’s office, IT department, economic development, Hotel Occupancy Tax Board, courthouse security committee, Brenham Heritage Museum and Enterprise Fleet Management. She has also served on the Chappell Hill Water Supply Corporation Long Range Planning and Funding Committee, Washington County Subdivision Rules and Regulations Advisory Committee, Highway 290 Corridor Study Advisory Committee and as chair of the Washington County Judicial, Jail and E-911 Master Planning Committee. In addition, she currently serves as a board member of the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County and the Baylor Scott & White Fiduciary.
Bullock said she wants to strive towards “achieving an equitable balance for Washington County” as it navigates the challenges associated with community growth and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also plans to continue prioritizing upgrades to the Chappell Hill water tower.
Bullock has been endorsed for re-election by Brenham National Bank President and CEO Tieman “Tee” Dippel III and Mike Hopkins Distributing Inc. President Mike Hopkins Jr.
Prior to taking office, Bullock was a senior project manager for 11 years with Hi-Line Industries in Brenham.
