KEMP, Texas, April 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hal Richards, a candidate in the upcoming run-off elections for Kaufman County Judge, takes a proactive approach in evaluating the needs and voices of the local community. Mr. Richards, previously Mayor of Terrell in 2007, met with Mr. Rob Bresnahan, President and CEO of Larson Electronics, at the Larson Electronics headquarters; 9419 E US Hwy 175, Kemp, TX 75143. Mr. Richards, with vast experience surrounding infrastructure projects and implementing new standards, supports the establishment and growth of local businesses as a portal for new jobs and opportunities.

"I believe that Kaufman County, Texas is an exceptional place and I have committed myself to the betterment of this community for the past thirty-five years. The challenges ahead, however, are great,” said Mr. Richards.  As the fourth-fastest growing county in the state, the choices we make in the coming years will determine whether, or not our children inherit a safe, pro-business, pro-family, Kaufman County.”

During the visit to Larson Electronics Mr. Bresnahan issued a guided tour around the manufacturing facility. The company, with over 40 years of experience in the competitive industrial lighting sector, specializes in energy-efficient lighting solutions, power distribution systems and customized services. Mr. Richards was given a first-hand look at how Larson Electronics’ presence and services support local businesses in the area. In line with Mr. Richards’ objectives for the community, Larson Electronics could expand to offer new jobs in the area.

"We could potentially double our existing workforce of approximately fifty local residents, if we could get County support in bringing in adequate sewer and water systems. Our staff of skilled and well-paid employees all contribute to the local economy as would any, and all new positions we could add,” said Mr. Bresnahan.

Mr. Richards’ experience in bringing business to local communities is essential to Kaufman County. For the Highway 34 bypass project, Mr. Richards worked closely with the TxDOT, the Regional Transportation Council and state legislators to ensure completion. Mr. Richards also established the Building Standards Commission for Terrell, which resulted in the removal of 234 hazardous structures during his tenure. These accomplishments show Mr. Richards’ experience, knowledge and capabilities in addressing various aspects of bringing business into communities.
