Llano County Precinct 3 Commissioner

Sue Glover

Sue Glover

Sue Glover

Age: 51

Education: Bachelor’s degree in government from the University of Texas at Austin, 1991

Family: Two siblings

Experience: Twenty-seven years working with Texas counties in various capacities. Through my work with Allison & Associates, Texas Association of Counties and Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott, I have gained insight into Texas county operations, including the property tax structure. I’ve represented counties before the Texas Legislature, including, but not limited to, burn ban authority, road concerns, indigent defense and budgetary matters.

Party affiliation: Republican

What do you wish to accomplish?

My primary goal is to defend the taxpayers’ dollars, cutting unnecessary spending wherever possible. Additionally, I will work toward ensuring road projects are completed in a timely manner. I will remain available and responsive to all citizens, promptly addressing concerns and questions. I am not afraid to make hard decisions if they will benefit our entire community.

Why are you the most qualified candidate

My entire career has prepared me to serve as a member of the commissioners court. I understand the budget process of how tax dollars are collected and how they are spent. Not all decisions are made locally; some programs are mandated by the state with the county forced to adhere to those even if they are unfair and unfunded. Understanding both local issues and state mandates, I am committed to thoroughly reviewing and researching each matter brought before commissioners court and making the best decision for the taxpayer.

I am currently a board member and vice president of Kingsland Water Supply Corp. and a member of the Economic Development Committee of the Kingsland Chamber of Commerce.

Party affiliation: Republican

What do you wish to accomplish?

To work diligently and be accessible for the citizens of Precinct 3 to ensure that their concerns and ideas about how Llano County government can best serve them is accomplished. I believe that governments at all levels need to deliver the best services at the lowest feasible cost while operating openly and in the best interests of its taxpayers. To be a voice that matters, a voice who cares and a voice who listens to all Kingsland residents.

Why are you the most qualified candidate?

Because I have more hands-on government and business experience than the combined experiences of the incumbent first-term commissioner and the other challenger in the Precinct 3 race.
