Long time Liberty County resident and businessman Mike McCarty is pleased to announce his candidacy for his party’s nomination for the office of County Commissioner of Precinct 1 in the March 6th, 2012 Republican primary.
McCarty has been deeply involved in the community, most notably as a member of the Liberty City Council serving as Mayor Pro-Tem for the last four of seven terms. McCarty also serves as Vice President of the Liberty Community Development Corporation and as a member of the Liberty Municipal Airport Advisory Board. He has been a part of bringing much needed infrastructure improvements to the City of Liberty and also bringing Boomerang Tubular LLC and its over 500 jobs to South Liberty County.
McCarty believes if elected he could encourage economic growth in Precinct 1 as well as all of Liberty County. He states, “It’s important to create jobs and skills here where we live. It is just as important County Commissioners adhere to a budget that does not severely burden those who live here. Transparency must always prevail and good decisions are more important than ever.”
McCarty insists Liberty County will prosper with clear direction and a unified governing body- “Good leadership with a vision must be the driving force in county government. Good ideas and good decisions are a must.”
Again, Mike McCarty is seeking the Republican nomination for Liberty County Commissioner, Precinct 1 in the primary election being held on March 6th, 2012.
