“I feel that I have contributed as a responsible and accountable commissioner,” Morales said. “I have also contributed significantly working as a team with the entire commissioners court to keep the tax rate stable, working with the different county organizations in the disbursement of funds from the sale of the Airpark and bringing in the DCP plant at Berclair and associated pipelines.”
Morales said he also wants to continue representing county employees.
“We were also able to give all county employees and retirees a 3-percent raise this year and continued their benefits,” Morales said.
