Mike Bennett announces Goliad County Judge run

Posted: Updated:

GOLIAD, TX – On Friday, December 1st, Mike Bennett formally launched his campaign to be the next Goliad County Judge in order to stabilize county government by cutting fat from the budget, restoring dignity to Commissioners’ Court and demonstrating leadership through transparency by increasing community involvement.    “Goliad is a community that has been at the forefront of many historical events. Today, we find ourselves at the crossroads once again. This time it is for the future of our county itself. After six consecutive deficit budgets, Goliad is in financial trouble. Our county is going broke and our school district has a million-dollar shortfall for its annual budget. We are in trouble and there is no articulate plan to turn our financial troubles around. 
Goliad needs leadership. Goliad needs a comprehensive plan to bring economic growth to our county and we need it now. I have decided to run for County Judge, as I intend to work to change our course of direction. It is my intent to reduce local government spending, create economic stimulus within the county, and conduct business in a manner that is more inclusive for the citizens of Goliad County.
I am seeking your vote, not because I need or want the salary. I do so for the Good of Goliad. I truly believe that it is the right thing to do for our future and our children’s future. In order to prove my intent, I am willing to forgo my annual salary for the first year if elected and put my salary back into the general budget as a show of good faith to my fellow citizens of this historic and important county, Goliad.”  
Mike Bennett dedicated 14 years to law enforcement and has 20+ years of business experience. Mike has been happily married for 41 years to Janet Bennett. They have two grown children together. Mike and Janet reside on 85 acres where they raise cattle and enjoy living in beautiful, historic Goliad County.
