ASK ABOUT MY HOLIDAY PIES
at the Emory Livestock Sale Barn
Owner Willy Bell • 903-268-0295
Thank you citizens and voters in Precinct 1 for
giving me the opportunity to serve you and the other
citizens of Rains County for another four year term
as your Commissioner. These first four years have
passed very quickly but lean truly say I have enjoyed
the learning experience. I believe some solutions
have been reached that have enhanced the county’s
service to its citizens and reduced costs, however,
many more await solutions and I eagerly embrace the
privilege you have granted me by my re-election to
do just that.
Again, thank you all.
Commissioner Pet. 1
To the many
Supporters, Friends and Family
that gave our campaign
their time, energy and
I am forever grateful for the
Confidence, Trust and Hope
you placed in our effort. This
journey was made possible
by each one of you
and I could not ask for
better people by my side.
Here’s what’s next.
