A Better East Texas: Gregg County Government Effectiveness

Gregg County Judge Bill Stoudt Gregg County Judge Bill Stoudt

Gregg county commissioner's recent approval of a multi-purpose arena is good news for residents for 2 reasons.

First, indoor air conditioned entertainment venues will now be available to you that you never had before.

Second and probably more important it's yet another sign that as for as government effectiveness goes Gregg county is one of the best in the region.

 Not only did the commissioner's court unanimously approve the building but they joined forces with the city of Longview to insure the long term success of the project. What's equally impressive is the debt structure of Gregg County will most likely not be affected by the proposed new construction.

So how did they do it? The answer in my book is fiscal responsibility.

When Gregg county judge Bill Stoudt took office he led an effort to reduce the county's expenses by almost 3 million dollars. Revenue was raised while still keeping Gregg County with the 10th lowest tax rate in the state.

Judge Stoudt has established himself as a leader, an intuitive consensus builder, and visionary who has a keen understanding of what it takes to build voter confidence and make this a better east Texas.
