Precinct 2 Commissioner Tim Brown will file for re-election to the position he first filled two decades ago.

“The voters of Precinct 2 honored me with their trust,” Commissioner Brown said. 

Brown said that he first ran for the position because of his “concern about the impacts of rampant growth” in Bell County.

“I have enjoyed the privilege of serving with some outstanding men and women and,” Brown said, “with them, have managed a remarkable transformation in Bell County.”

Among the accomplishments Brown has pointed to are these:  substantially improved the financial strength and stability of the county; completely modernized county facilities, steadily improved the network of county roads and bridges, developed an award-winning public safety communications system, implemented an award-winning cash management system to maximize interest earnings with greater security, implemented and maintained an award-winning workplace safety program resulting in the lowest workers compensation insurance rates in the state, developed an award-winning Information Technology Department, improved access to services through expansion of annexes and maintained one of the lowest tax rates and lowest per capita spending rate in Central Texas

“It has been my honor to serve in leadership roles in a number of affiliated organizations and associations,” he said. He is the former chairman of the Texas Conference of Urban Counties. the Central Texas Council of Government, the Central Texas Economic Development District and the Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization (former chairman).  “During my tenure as chairman, we secured funding for several major projects on I-35 and U.S. 190 in Killeen,” he said.

Gov. George Bush appointed Brown to the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Working Group, which developed the blueprint for the award-winning courthouse preservation program subsequently created by the legislature.
