I’m a 5 th generation citizen of Rockwall County. My great grandfather and grandfather were cotton
farmers, my grandfather, father and uncle had careers in law enforcement in our community. My family
instilled in me a sense of community pride that supports my commitment and responsibility. I’ve lived
here nearly my entire life and cannot think of another place I’d want to live. I raised my sons here. We
attended Rockwall schools, participated in school sports and activities, County 4-H, worship and shop
here. And now I have a grandson who lives here and I want to protect Rockwall’s future for him. I’m
most proud when he says, “I’m from Rockwall, Texas”.
