A local rancher has announced he will run for Washington County Commissioner.

Rick Seeker

Rick Seeker has filed for the office of County Commissioner of Precinct One.  Seeker will face incumbent Don Koester in the March Republican primary, the winner of which will face Democrat Shirley Harris-Jackson in November.

Born in Brenham and a resident of Washington County since 1995, Seeker has 44 years of experience in the oilfield industry.  Seeker said his experience in handling large budgets will allow him to understand complex financial situations within the county.

Seeker said, since moving back to Washington County, he has paid close attention to commissioners court proceedings and what has and has not been done.



Seeker said he also wants to address what he calls a lack of pride of some landowners, and encourage them to keep up the image of the county by keeping their properties clean.  In addition, he wants to make a concerted effort to always be available to constituents.



The primary election will be held March 3, 2020, with early voting beginning February 18th.

  1. While we all prefer to see everything neat and tidy in the county, property appearance outside the city limits has no ordinances other than illegal dumping, or restrictions to enforce property appearance preferences. As citizens have said repeatedly on this forum, it is the country, and the freedom to do, build and live as they wish should be their choice. And since the majority of a Washington county citizens prefer to have “ less government” and interference in their lives, we need other reasons to vote for candidates. Like a plan for maintaining county roads which see increasing oil field activity, wise purchasing for the counties needs, and an open, clear, responsive, and complete communication with citizens.
