(Seguin) -- With the November General Election over, it's time to begin the next round of campaigning. This time it's for such seats as the Republican nomination for Guadalupe County Commissioner Precinct 4. Announcing her intentions to seek re-election is County Commissioner Judy Cope.
Cope says she wants to continue the commitment she made to residents of Guadalupe County during her first campaign several years ago.
"One of those was to keep our tax rate as low as possible and this year, the court passed the lowest tax rate for
Guadalupe County in 20 years. I supported and voted for the property tax freeze for 65 and over and the disabled. While keeping taxes low, the court continues to provide the residents with the services needed to keep up with our growth of our county," said Cope.
Cope says over the years, she has worked hard for the best interest of all residents.
"Since I've been in office, law enforcement in Guadalupe County, has more than doubled in size in both manpower and equipment. I also made a commitment to bringing our residents more jobs with good benefits. The court has worked hand in hand with the cities in order to attract new businesses to the area that would provide good jobs with good benefits to our residents. Guadalupe County has been rated ' fourth in the nation' for job creation. For the safety of our residents, I have continually been committed to the support and funding of our volunteer fire departments, as well as our city fire departments. I am an advocate for our veterans. I support the men and women who have put their lives on the line for our freedoms and to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice," said Cope.
Cope stands committed to serving the residents full-time if again elected. She says the representation of the residents of Guadalupe County is "my only job."
Commissioner Cope has been in office for the past 15 years. The primary election is slated for Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
