County Commissioner

Precinct 1

County Commissioner


Each county in Texas is managed by a committee consisting of 4 'county commissioners' and headed by a 'county judge'. Each commissioner represents one of four districts in the county, with the district boundaries being defined after each census in order to preserve roughly equal populations.

The incumbent for Precinct 1 Commissioner is Mike Meador, who was originally elected to the position in 1992 and is running for re-election (unopposed in the primary).
