TAHSR CHAIRMAN BEN LEMAN TO SEEK SCHUBERT OPEN SEAT IN TEXAS HOUSE
Ben Leman to resign as Grimes County Judge; remain TAHSR Chairman
Jewett, Texas – Texans Against High-Speed Rail (TAHSR) Chairman Ben Leman has been a champion for protecting taxpayer dollars and private property rights and, in his capacity as Grimes County Judge, county rights in a fight now entering its fourth year against the proposed Dallas Houston HSR.
While Leman will continue to serve as TAHSR Chairman, he will resign as Grimes County Judge today, December 8, 2017, and begin his candidacy to seek election to the Texas House of Representatives for the position soon to be vacated by Leighton Schubert representing District 13.
Kyle Workman, President of Texans Against High-Speed Rail, “On behalf of all Texans, we would like to express our gratitude to Representative Schubert for his tireless work and coordination with us and wish him the best.”
“We are also excited for Judge Leman as he begins this new chapter and know unequivocally that, if elected, he will continue the hard work started by Representative Leighton Schubert to represent Texas landowners who are being negatively impacted by this proposed HSR project.”
“Knowing Ben personally, the voters of District 13 should be eager to head to the polls and elect Ben as their next Representative. He is a man of character and wisdom and has a genuine motivation to serve his constituents,” Workman said.
