Lamar County Judge Chuck Superville has announced his re-election campaign for another term as Lamar County Judge.
Tuesday evening in the Lamar County Courthouse, the courtroom was standing-room-only when Superville made his announcement.
“I am grateful for the trust and confidence that you all have placed in me,” Superville said. “Serving our county has been both a great joy and a great challenge — causing me to grow, both professionally and personally.”
Serving Lamar County for the past 22 years, Superville attributed his career as county judge to the support and assistance of “many people working together to accomplish many things.”
Some of the highlights Superville mentioned he has accomplished while serving as Lamar County Judge include:
- creating the Lamar County Veterans Service Office;
- creating the Lamar County Elections Administrator’s office;
- Renovating and restoring the courthouse;
- Renovating the old post office downtown;
- Total upgrade of all the county’s software;
- Assisting with the Northeast Texas Trail using grant money, rather than tax money;
- Doubling the money going toward volunteer fire departments without raising taxes;
- Working with the Regional Mobility Authority to complete construction of Hwy. 19/24 to I-30; and
- Balanced 22 budgets.
“The tax rate,” Superville added, “has only been raised four pennies in the last 22 years and is the lowest it has been in 13 years.”
Although he is on the ballot as a Democrat, Superville said the office is nonpartisan and that he will continue to work as a public servant for the best interest of all Lamar County.
“You have all given me the gift of a lifetime by allowing me to serve in this position,” Superville said. “Please check Chuck when casting your vote.”
