Andy Eads, 51 (i)
As a 5th generation Denton County resident I have seen first hand our growth and have a clear understanding of our community needs. Our big challenge is to provide county services with increasing demands on our justice system, law enforcement and our roads and bridges, while maintaining a low tax rate. I am proud Denton County has the lowest countywide tax rate of the top 15 counties in Texas. I have the experience necessary to balance the needs of a growing county to move Denton County forward.
