Barkemeyer seeks new term


Barkemeyer Barkemeyer I’m Dave Barkemeyer and I have decided to run for a second term as county judge of Milam County.

It has been a privilege to serve as your county judge these past three years; my first term has certainly been challenging and has gone by very quickly. I’d be honored to serve for another term.

I’ve tried to do my best to keep you informed about your county government through regular weekly newspaper columns, radio programs, the Milam County website at www.milamcounty.net, by conducting informative commissioners court meetings, and by having periodic community communication meetings around the county.

I believe in faith-based leadership that respects First Amendment rights; in responsible, efficient county government based on a balanced budget.

I’ve tried to demonstrate honest ethical behavior during my first term in office and will continue to pursue bringing new business and industry to Milam County.

Margia and I are both natives of Milam County, having graduated from Yoe High back in the early 1960s.

We live in Cameron, having been back now for some 15 years after I completed a 30 year career with Dow Chemical Company.

I’m a graduate of Texas A&M with an MBA from the University of Houston.

So you’ve seen how I perform during my first term; I will continue with the same philosophy and practices should you choose to re-elect me to a second term.

Thank you for your support this first term, and I would appreciate your vote so that I may continue to work along side the other elected officials, county employees, and you the citizens of Milam County to make our community a better place to live.
