State Rep. steps down
State Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt recently announced his resignation.
KARNES COUNTY – State Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt (R, Lexington), who represents Karnes and several other counties, announced his decision to resign from his position as state rep. to accept a position as general counsel of the Texas Department of Agriculture.
“When I announced the formation of my transition team, I promised that I would be seeking out the best and brightest to help me become the best Agriculture Commissioner in our state’s history. Tim Kleinschmidt fits the bill and I am excited that he will be joining my team at TDA,” Miller said.
Kleinschmidt, a Lee County attorney, rancher, family-man and civic leader, was recently elected to a fourth term in the Texas House of Representatives, where he serves on the Agriculture and Livestock and the Homeland Security and Public Safety Committees.
“I was humbled when Agriculture Commissioner-elect Miller reached out to me about assuming a leadership role in the Texas Department of Agriculture,” Kleinschmidt said.
