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.

  • CURRENT PRESIDENT OF THE HORSESHOE BAY PROPERTY OWNERS’ ASSOCIATION
  • SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS ENTREPRENEUR
  • OVER 40 YEARS MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE
