A Republican from Inez is challenging Commissioner Clint Ives for his seat on Victoria County's commissioners court.
Mark Schroller filed to run for county commissioner in Precinct 4, which covers the northwest section of the county. The Victoria native currently works for The Dow Chemical Company as a technology leader for its apprenticeship program, according to a news release.
"The reason I am running for county commissioner is to leverage the technical skills and competencies I achieved throughout my career to better assist the citizens of Victoria County," said Schroller.
Increasing communication with local citizens, helping seniors and improving student achievement are some of Schroller's priorities, according to his campaign website. Boosting public safety and keeping taxes low are also focuses for Schroller.
"The citizens of our county deserve someone who will listen, genuinely care, respond and take action," said Schroller.
Schroller graduated from Victoria High School and attended Victoria College. He now serves on several advisory boards at Victoria College and also was the chairman for a local credit union's board.
