Tim Berneking has announced his candidacy for Ellis County Commissioner, Precinct 2 in the 2014 primary election.

A resident of Avalon, Berneking is asking residents to visit his campaign website at http://www.timbernekingcampaign.com.

“My campaign website was created to share with you my desire to serve you, the residents of Ellis County, on the commissioner’s court, and allow you to get to know something about myself,” Berneking stated in his release.

“Ellis County is your county and the commissioner’s court is your court, yet there are manipulations to the court’s processes that don’t allow the residents wanting to get involved the opportunity to do so,” the release stated. “While adhering to my conservative principles, I want the court to be more accessible and visible. The court needs to be there for you.

“Visit the website, email me, or call me. I want to know your concerns and I am asking for your support,” the release stated.
