The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper, endorses James Noack for re-election as Precinct 3 Montgomery County Commissioner in the November 3, 2020, General Election, with Early Voting starting today. Noack has been an outstanding road and bridge commissioner and is – obviously – the leading conservative on the Montgomery County Commissioners Court
As a road and bridge commissioner, Noack has been nothing short of superb. His office is efficient, responsive, and quick with respect to road maintenance issues. He has careful with tax and bond dollars, has closely managed road projects, and has listened to citizen concerns with an open mind.
Noack’s office has become the model 21st century road and bridge commissioner’s precinct in Texas. Many commissioners from other counties have learned from Noack. At least two of his colleagues on the Commissioners Court in Montgomery County have taken some of his practices into their precincts as well.
Noack has had enormous influence over the entire County government, because his intellectual force and superb hiring of smart people translates into innovations across many government departments.
Undoubtedly, the achievement of the Commissioners Court in passing two annual Budgets in a row at the “no new tax revenue” tax rate or lower is Noack’s and none others. County Judge Mark Keough has followed Noack’s lead on most Commissioners Court issues and often openly seeks Noack’s guidance in public meetings. Noack is always prepared for Court meetings in vast distinction from his four colleagues on the Commissioners Court.
In ensuring the best use of tax dollars and protecting the interests of taxpayers in Montgomery County, no one comes close to the Noack superlative. He deserves another term as the Precinct 3 County Commissioner.
Brady for Congress
As with almost all politicians who go to Washington, D.C., Kevin Brady’s primary constituency are the members of the House Republican Conference rather than his constituents back at home in the Eighth Congressional District. Nevertheless, Brady has a fairly conservative voting record and, most importantly, has voted to support the agenda of President Donald Trump consistently.
Brady’s official staff is remarkably strong and provide excellent constituent services to District 8 residents.
As Chairman of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee, Brady was helpful in the passage of President Trump’s tax overhaul package.
Since Brady’s opponent is running on the same liberal agenda as Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, endorsing Brady for re-election over the Democrat is easy.
(Readers should notice that this newspaper has skipped endorsing anyone in the United States Senate race.)
