2020 County Commissioner-Pct 1
Robert Cervenka, a former City Manager has announced he will campaign as a republican candidate for McLennan County Commissioner-Precinct 1 in the spring 2020 primary. A lifelong resident of McLennan County, he is a graduate of Baylor University. He is currently self-employed as a consultant for cities and developers within the Greater Waco Area. He pledges to use his more than 35 years of experience and his many professional relationships to help the residents of Precinct 1 grow and succeed. He takes pride in a career that was accomplished with the utmost professionalism, integrity, and honesty.
A conservative who believes in republican values, he is a civic leader with experience and integrity with a successful city government career. He views running for County Commissioner is a continuation of an entire career built from service in planning and municipal government. “My education, management and leadership skills, work in economic development, city planning, and years of public service have given me the necessary knowledge and skills to fulfill any expectation as a County Commissioner. I intend to work with all local officials and residents in Precinct 1 to develop and implement new collaborative solutions to existing infrastructure issues such as street, water, sanitary sewer, drainage, and floodplain maintenance. I feel local government works best when public servants answer to the people they represent. I am committed to working to bring positive leadership and consensus-building to the Commissioners Court to improve conditions and make life better for Precinct 1 and all County residents. I will work with State Legislators as a representative of McLennan County and its constituents on potential legislation that may affect the lives of the residents of Precinct 1. I will work with McLennan County officials to encourage all cities to participate in economic development projects.”
