Rodney Paulette Announces His Run for Angelina County Commissioner

Lufkin, TX— Rodney Paulette was born, raised, and has lived in Angelina County his entire life.

This is his home. As an advocate for the people, he is officially announcing his candidacy for Angelina County Commissioner’s Court representing Pct. 1. This encompasses Hudson, Granville, Central, Pollok, and Allentown.

Rodney’s love for our county, plus extensive education and business experience have uniquely qualified him to represent your voice on the Angelina County Commissioner’s Court. And he’s ready to tackle the pressing issues facing our community—from infrastructure and roads to government overspending and an overcrowded court system. This is exactly what Angelina County desperately needs.

Rodney knows how this works firsthand. He was appointed in 2021 to serve on Angelina County Commissioners Court for 21 months. While on the court, he witnessed incompetence and conflicts of interest that have plagued this county for decades. He also voted to install the unit road system, which was overwhelmingly approved by the voters. He believes it’s still lacking the experienced personnel to be properly implemented, and the drivers are the ones putting up with the massive
potholes to prove it. The people are not getting what they were promised. Rodney understands our road issues.

With Degrees in both Accounting and Finance, he understands sound fiscal management. As President of Texas Foundry and Executive Vice President of Citation Corporation, he supervised eighteen engineers and had one billion dollars in sales. Rodney understands business, economic growth, and how to manage people.
So why would a successful businessman want to be County Commissioner? He says, “The City of Lufkin has done a great job on their roads with professional management, and I’m confident we can do the same with our 730 miles of roads. We need good infrastructure to create economic growth—this is the backbone of every thriving community. Once that foundation is laid, we will be on the road to economic development, or as I like to say, the Road to Reform.”

“I do have an opponent in this race, but I’m running against a broken system—and I’m running for you. I plan on donating my salary, for me this is a job of community service. I’d appreciate your support in the March 5th election.”

In 1977, Rodney married his sweetheart, Diane, and they have two wonderful children together. Diane spends much of her time and energy volunteering in animal rescue with the Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter in Lufkin, as well as Pilots N Paws. They live on a small ranch in Hudson.

The campaign welcomes volunteers to join Rodney on the Road to Reform for Angelina County.
