Perry has worked diligently at the department to represent agriculture’s interests across Texas and the nation In 1991, he was selected to serve on the U.S. Trade Advisory Committee on International Trade. As a member of this group, he worked closely with the U.S. team to draff the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Perry began his political career in 1984 when he was elected to represent District 64 in the Texas House of Representatives. He won praise for his legislative work in 1989 when he was named “one of the IO most effective lawmakers” by the Dallas Morning News He served three terms before being elected to his current post.
A native of Paint Creek in Haskell County, Perry received a bachelor of science degree in animal science from Texas A&.M University. Upon graduating in 1972, he entered the U.S. Air Force and served as a C-130 pilot He attained the rank of captain before leaving the service to return to ranching and fanning in Haskell County.

tract also states that the county will pay half only on major structural repairs and will not be responsible for routine maintenance
The contract also states that the county must consult with the city throughout the entire project and that the city can refuse to accept the bridge if it is not what it expected, said Rhein-lander Rhemlander said this should not occur because the county will obtain the city s approval during the preliminary , design and construction stages.
Commissioner J L "Jumbo" Evans said he was concerned about the clause saying the city could refuse the bridge. and said the wording of the contract needed to be precise
"That is an escape that they don't need because they approved even step taken.” he said. "I don’t think we should leav e that door open to them '
The Eikel Field project is a plan to build a walking; exercise track at the Eikel Field Park The city and county have agreed to fund SI0.500 each for the project. The contract says the city will develop plans and get proposals and the county will pay half of the cost to contract it out Rhemlander said the county could do the w ork. but it would require very detailed specifications so

the county will know what it is dealing with.
"The line of lesser resistance at this point would seem to be to contract it out." said Rhemlander
Casteel said she believes the approval of the contract is a move closer to completing the project. Changes will soil have to be made, but it gives every one a point to work from. she said.
"I don't think this is the end of it but it gives us a firm footing on where we're coming from.” Casteel said.
In ocher business, the court approv ed membership in the Greater Austin-San Antonio Corridor of Texas. Casteel said she felt the organization has changed since the last time the county was a member, and it would benefit the area.
"They 've really made an attempt to include the small anes rn marketing the area and drawing attention to it.” she said
The court also approved the county 's participation in a contract with the Department of Public Safety . According to the contract the courts will notify DPS when an individual has failed to appear in court or failed to pay a fine The person will then not be able to renew a license in Texas.
