Brenham City Councilmember Clint Kolby has announced he will seek re-election.
Kolby is the first incumbent on the council to officially announce his plans to run for office again. He has served as At-Large Position Five Councilmember since being appointed after a special election in 2018.
Kolby said he feels his education and professional background working on large capital projects with businesses and governmental agencies serves the city well as it moves forward.
Prior to becoming an attorney at the Brenham law firm Betts, Walters and Mutscher, P.C., Kolby served seven years as the project manager with the Brenham Economic Development Foundation. He currently serves as president of the Blinn Alumni and Friends Association, and previously served as president of the Washington County Bar Association. He graduated from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University and South Texas College of Law Houston.
Kolby believes his time in office thus far has given him a greater perspective on challenges facing the city and the accomplishments it can achieve.
Clint is married to Elizabeth Kolby, who is a Pre-AP and AP Physics teacher at Brenham High School. They have two young children, Catherine and Thomas, and are expecting the birth of their third child, a baby girl, later this spring. Kolby and his family also are members of the Champion Fellowship church.
