Landy Warren, a Round Rock banker and businessman, announced June 15 he plans to seek the Republican nomination for Williamson County Commissioner Precinct 1.
Warren represents the county on the Lone Star Regional Water Authority of which he serves as president of the board and served on the county’s 2013 bond committee.
“I’ve enjoyed serving the county the last several years on behalf of the court,” Warren said. “After my experience working on county business, many people around the community asked me to consider running for county commissioner, and after talking to my family, my wife and my employer, everyone was supportive. It seemed like a good opportunity and a good time in my life to do this.”
Warren is past chair of the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce and has also held leadership positions with a variety of organizations, including the Rotary Club of Round Rock, the Round Rock Area Serving Center and the St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center board.
He said he hopes to translate those leadership roles into serving on Commissioners Court.
“Williamson County has had great leadership over the years; leaders that were willing to use a lot of foresight in terms of building infrastructure and roads to support the growth that’s coming,” Warren said. “As that growth continues, the challenges are going to get harder and harder to manage. I look forward to a process of continuing what the county has been doing [and]bringing a lot of good management skills, teamwork skills and relations throughout the county to keep that process going smoothly.”
Lisa Birkman, who has served as the Precinct 1 commissioner since 2004, announced in April that she would not seek a fourth term.
The primary election is March 1.
