As our candidate previews continue, tonight we focus on Brazos County Commissioner, Precinct 4.
The incumbent is Democrat Carey Cauley. Since he moved to the area in 1963, Cauley has worn numerous hats, including working for the Department of Labor, owning businesses, teaching, and as a minister. He has served as a commissioner for 12 years.
"I've given of my time and service," Cauley said. "I'm completing 12 years of, I believe, exceptional service. There are still some things I feel need to be done with my expertise, my experience on the job, my relationship with other commissioners. I feel like I can do a better job of representing the people of Brazos County, and get things done."
His opponent is no stranger to the area or to public office. Republican Paul Madison is a fourth generation Bryan resident, who previously served for five years as a Bryan city councilman. He stepped down from that position to run for commissioner.
"I've served as mayor pro-tem of the city of Bryan for two years," Madison said. "I've served on the Bryan Business Council, and Single Member District 2 for the city of Bryan. I also worked with the Research Valley Partnership, and just a number of boards and commissions. That, I think, will lend itself to what I would be doing as county commissioner."
Early voting ends Friday.
