Republican Frank Leffingwell Launches Campaign for Williamson County Judge
ROUND ROCK, TX – Republican attorney and businessman Frank Leffingwell kicked off his campaign for Williamson County Judge this morning in hopes of succeeding three-term Judge Dan Gattis who will not be seeking re-election in 2018. Leffingwell believes that in order for Williamson County to prepare for future growth and plan for infrastructure needs, we must elect problem solvers with successful track records in the private sector.
“We need more business leaders and fewer insiders, bureaucrats, and career politicians in our governmental institutions,” Leffingwell said. “We need to have a conservative approach to government that enables us to better control property appraisals and taxes. For a businessperson, these challenges are well-understood realities. If we are going to provide a place for families to live and businesses to grow, then government will need to operate within a reasonable budget. It’s what every hard-working family does each month, and it’s what our county government should do as well.”
A Round Rock native, Leffingwell has run a successful law practice since 2008, focusing in business law, tax law, and estate planning. He is a Sustaining Life Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation (an organization which invites the top 1/3 of 1% of all Texas attorneys as members), and has the highest possible rating (AV) from Martindale-Hubbell. In 2013, his law firm was named the “Small Business of the Year” by the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce.
Leffingwell is also heavily invested in the Williamson County community. He is a founding member of the Round Rock Police Foundation, a past president of CHASCO YMCA, Family Eldercare, and the Round Rock Rotary Club, and he is a former board member of the Greater Williamson County YMCA, Seton Williamson Foundation, and St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center. He currently serves as a board member for Round Rock/Austin Baylor Scott & White and the Greater Round Rock Community Foundation.
While serving on the Round Rock City Council, Leffingwell has focused on economic development issues and bringing high-quality jobs to Williamson County. He has chaired numerous commissions and organizations which focus on improving mobility and creating an environment where the private sector can thrive. He has held leadership positions on the Austin Area Research Organization, the Capital Area Economic Development District, the Capital Area Council of Governments, the Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority, and the Round Rock Chamber Economic Development Advisory Committee, among others.
“Williamson County continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in the country. Our growth requires a steady hand and experienced leadership,” Leffingwell concluded. “My background in business, the law, and public service together with nearly 40 years of experience watching Williamson County grow from a small, rural community to a thriving center of technology and innovation has prepared me for the challenges ahead. But I cannot do this alone. Let’s work together with a singular vision to create a conservative county government that serves the people – not the other way around.”
Leffingwell graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown in 1989, earned his J.D. from St. Mary’s University School of Law in 1993, and is a candidate for an executive masters in law (LL.M.) in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center. He and his wife, Bethany, have been married for 23 years and are the proud parents of two teenagers, Blake and Claire. They are active members of Round Rock Presbyterian Church.
