"I'm so blessed and thankful to be able to submit my application with more than the required 500 signatures," Jones said. "There's plenty of work yet to do on the campaign trail, but this is great momentum for moving things forward to victories in both March and November."

With an unwavering Republican voting history, Jones noted that her conservative values and strong belief in fiscal responsibility are striking a chord with an overwhelming majority of the people she visits. These residents are looking for county government to provide required and expected services without over-regulating businesses and over-taxing residents, and that is exactly what Peggy promises to do as County Judge.

"When I earn the privilege to serve as your Judge, I will apply rational property tax policy and transparent public money practices to Hays County government," Jones said. "Also a priority of mine will be bringing economic development together with smart growth practices that build our economy while respecting the environment."

With a Master's degree in Applied Geography, majoring in Land Area/Development and Management and a Bachelor's degree with special emphasis in real estate development, Jones has a clear handle on best practices for regional land management and will apply her experiences as a real estate broker and business owner to the business of making Hays County run efficiently and within its budget.

"Working together we can foster constructive communication to develop ways to curb the erosion of private property rights, provide groundwater solutions, and enact other initiatives to make Hays County an even better place to live, work and visit," Jones said.

Peggy Jones has been a Hays County businesswoman since 1989. Known for working with diversity, she has earned respect and admiration from her peers and customers because of her unique background comprised of a career in land and water management. As County Judge, Peggy will preserve the health, promote the safety, and protect the well-being of all Hays County citizens.
