A former Denton County Republican Party Chair has thrown her hat into the race for Denton County Commissioner Precinct 4.
Dianne Edmondson, a Robson Ranch resident, cited her strong business background, political experience and conservative Christian values as driving forces in her decision to run, according to a news release.
“The month-long filing period allows potential candidates like myself to spend thoughtful time deciding if public service is the right path,” Edmondson said in a prepared statement. “The encouragement I received, coupled with the unwavering support of my husband, convinced me this was the right course to take for me to continue serving Denton County.”
Edmondson will prioritize attracting jobs to Denton County, eliminating waste and fraud in government and supporting law enforcement, the news release said.
“Economic development that keeps rising property taxes in check is paramount,” she said. “I will look for ways to trim the fat and, of course, I will strongly support law enforcement efforts to keep Denton County residents safe.”
Edmondson will also demand excellent road upgrades and repairs.
“Commissioners and roads go hand-in-hand,” she said. “Listening to citizens will help me represent them effectively on the Commissioner’s Court. I’ll have big shoes to fill with Commissioner Eads moving on, but I am ready for the challenge.”
Edmondson and her husband, Bob, have two grown children and seven grandchildren.
