As a father of four, USAF vet, college professor, Texas Aggie, and 5th generation rancher, Carey A. Counsil is uniquely qualified to be the next Texas Agriculture Commissioner.
Carey is taking his grassroots campaign to the voters. Listening to the producers, the consumers, the landowners, and our representatives in Austin, he recognizes that the platform will continue to remain fluid, so that, when elected, he has a clear understanding of the issues that mean the most to Texans, and to Texas.
