Rockwall County Commissioner David Magness has announced that he will seek a fourth term as Commissioner in the March 2014 primary election. He represents Precinct 4, which is primarily the County's northeast quadrant.
First elected in 2002, and taking office in January 2003, Magness is the senior member of the Commissioners Court and serves as judge pro tem.
Magness--who chairs the Rockwall County Transportation Consortium--points to the County's transportation plan as one of the areas he believes is critical for the County's future. Calling transportation a "quality of life" issue, Magness noted, "Nobody likes to sit in traffic, and Rockwall County is taking the lead in transportation improvements. Our transportation plan has become the model for other counties because of our success in getting projects funded."
