“Having worked in-depth on many infrastructure and economic development projects throughout Denton County, I know firsthand that a strong freight rail system strengthens our economy. The private investments into North Texas freight rail access and the network’s capacity are connecting employers in the region to destinations and markets across the nation, and through our seaports, to the world.”

Commissioner Andy Eads, a native Texan and fifth generation resident of Denton County, has served on the Denton County Commissioners Court since 2007. He also serves as Denton County’s representative to the Regional Transportation Council, president of Denton County Housing Finance Corporation, and chairman emeritus of the Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce.

Andy began his public service career at the Town of Addison, where he researched and authored the history book Addison, Texas: A Pictorial History. Andy lives in Flower Mound with his wife and their children.
