Vision & Values

I have never been one to shy away from hard work and always strive for excellence.  I am also very aware of the fact that if elected Mayor of Horseshoe Bay I will be serving our community, putting your needs and concerns first.  I will always stand-up for what is right.

Horseshoe Bay has been our home since Debbie and I bought our first property back in February of 2005, during a Valentine’s Day trip.  We were so enamored with the beauty and charm of the community that we decided to invest in our own little piece of paradise.  For the past 18 years, our love for Horseshoe Bay has continued to deepen, grow and it remains an essential part of our lives.  We have had the opportunity to meet a large number of individuals that just like us, come from other areas and call Horseshoe Bay home.  If you decided to invest in a property in our beloved community, pay your taxes, plus other fees, and are happy to be part of our community then that deserves all the rights, respect, and friendliness that our city has to offer.

I am absolutely qualified to become Mayor of our great city and I am proud of my humble beginnings.   After graduating from Spring Woods High School in 1971, I pursued higher education at East Central State University in Ada, OK on a football scholarship.  In 1974, I returned to Houston to complete my education at The University of Houston, Majoring in Accounting while immersing myself in the dynamic world of transportation and logistics. It was during this time that I discovered my passion for this industry, setting the stage for a successful professional trajectory. 

I founded the Beeman Supply Company with the first truck used to haul steel and agricultural products such as grain, cotton, hay, and alfalfa to name a few.  Additionally, I invested in warehouse properties to be used in our commodities distribution system. That led to the establishment of Beeman Transportation, a nationwide company transporting essential commodities across all lower 48 states. Concurrently, I expanded into sales and marketing to represent and do regional sales for major companies such as Smithfield, Jenny O, Armour (ConAgra), plus Bar S Foods.  My entrepreneurial nature recognized the need to expand into other areas to include buying and growing underperforming companies and turning around its management to once again be profitable.  This was accomplished for 12 consecutive years.  

The national and international nature of my companies subjected me to various local, city, state, and federal regulations. I am very knowledgeable and have a clear understanding about compliance, record keeping and data management. I worked closely with the USDA, FDA, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and TxDOT to name a few.  Another area of importance deals with water conservation, water treatment, and overall water management. Our high standards awarded our companies an AA+ rating. 

As Horseshoe Bay Mayor, I am committed to listen and to hear you, and to give you the opportunity to express differences of opinion with respect.  Our city should welcome responsible innovation, learning, and resilience that brings conscientious growth.  If we do not grow, we become stagnant, but it must be done in a way that protects all of our basic needs and resources.  Let’s bring common sense back to our city government and have meaningful and responsible progress together!  Your Vote is Your Voice…BE HEARD this November 7th, 2023.
