Rockwall County Commissioner Lee Gilbert Endorses Frank New for County Judge Position – Blue Ribbon News

Lee Gilbert

Rockwall, TX (May 4, 2022) It’s clear that Frank New, Pro Tem Mayor of the City of Heath, Heath Alderman, and businessman is the right person to lead this county as the Rockwall County Judge.

As Precinct 2 County Commissioner for the past 7 years, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the methods and motivations of leadership under the current County Judge. Specifically, while I was in the Court of Commissioners, the judge never once recommended a study related to a strategic plan for Rockwall County.

By contrast, during Frank’s time as a member of Heath Town Council, the town, with input from the citizens, adopted a comprehensive plan which represents the vision of what the citizens want their town to become. This is a notable example of the good that collaborative leadership can do. Additionally, Frank is an experienced business owner and a seasoned servant to this community. Frank continues to earn the respect of the people he represents and those he works with, including city employees, law enforcement, and city and county leaders. This respect comes from Frank rolling up his sleeves and doing the work, where and when needed, to make remarkable things happen in his community. His good-natured personality and positive outlook make Frank easy to work with, and his integrity allows him to focus on building trust with others.

I strongly believe that term limits are important because the community benefits from the influx of ideas that new leadership brings. Eight years in a position is quite a long time. If you want a leader who is not driven by a political agenda but by a genuine desire to do good for Rockwall County, join me in supporting Frank New for Rockwall County Judge.

The day of the second round of elections is May 24. Early voting will take place May 16-20.
