Christopher Bedynek filed to run in the Democratic Party Primary. This week he released the following statement:

I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Christopher Daniel Bedynek, and I am running for the position of Refugio County Judge. I was born in Refugio in 1959, raised in the Woodsboro -Bonnie View area by my parents the late Mr. Frank W., Bedynek and Mrs. June (Shorty) Wiginton of Woodsboro and graduated from Woodsboro High School in 1977.

I come from a rather large family of 10, my siblings are Michael (Beverly) Bedynek, Clyde W. Bedynek, Joseph L. (Regina) Bedynek, Theresa A. (Abe) Moss, Regina K. (Charlie) Levien, Patrick S. (Joni) Bedynek, Virginia L. (John) Kopec, Andrew R. (Jennifer) Bedynek and Patricia K. (Larry) Breeden, step-sisters and brothers are Terri (Doug Meissner) Wiginton, Donna (Joe) Corolla, Wesley Wiginton, Bobby Wiginton, and Angie Wiginton.

My work experience has been with the former United Gas Pipeline both here and in Erath, La., a personal injury/medical malpractice and corporate defense law firm in Corpus Christi, as accounting manager, an immigration law firm in Austin, and public finance law firms in Austin, and Santa Fe, N.M. as a bond paralegal.

Currently I am working with the Refugio County Juvenile Justice Center and I have seen the need to encourage parents to participate in a child’s life in order to have a positive effect towards a child’s development, behavior, respect for others and property. These efforts by positive family members help teach a young person how to be responsible and accountable for their actions.

Regarding the position of County Judge, they are the most visible official in county government. Often thought of as the county’s chief executive officer, a county judge has broad judicial and administrative powers, including serving as the presiding officer of the county’s policy-making body, the commissioners’ court.

It is my intention to be publicly involved with the many organizations within our county and listen to their needs and concerns. Being the most visible official in the county, I will be available to you - when you need me, and will be there to support you, the taxpayer.

My past work experience has taught me well, and I hope to use this experience to further the development of Refugio County. I share your concerns for bringing growth to the community, which in turn would provide an economic stimulus to our area.

Medical costs and health care coverage are of a major concern of mine as well and I will strive to evaluate every option available to continue providing dire health care benefits to our employees and opportunities for the community as well.

At this time I am asking you for your vote and support, to be elected the next Refugio County Judge. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by the following means: Cell phone 361-543-0027, 354 FM 629, Woodsboro, Tx 78393.
