To my friends, family, and citizens of Hardin County, Texas, my name is Matthew Minick, and I am announcing my candidacy for County Attorney of Hardin County, Texas. I am a long-time, proud resident of Hardin County. I graduated from Hardin-Jefferson High School and Lamar University, substitute taught at Lumberton ISD, and coached tennis players from Sour Lake, Kountze, Lumberton, and Silsbee. My wife, Kaltrina Minick, and I intend to see our newborn son, Connor, grow up in the same amazing community I grew up in. When I decided to go to law school, I knew I wanted to dedicate my life to public service. As the Assistant County Attorney of Hardin and Liberty Counties, I have had the honor to serve our citizens, protect victims of domestic violence, help neglected children find safe and stable homes, provide legal guidance to our elected officials, and much more. Each and every day, I am dedicated to protecting Hardin County and our citizens. If elected, I will dedicate my entire legal practice to serving Hardin County. I will not have a private legal practice. I pledge to give Hardin County one-hundred percent of my effort and time in becoming a strong, passionate county attorney. As the current Assistant County Attorney in Hardin County, I am prepared and trained on how the office operates, and on day one, I will be ready and able to run a fully functioning office. I am excited to start this new chapter of my life. If elected, I look forward to serving the people of this amazing community. In 2020, I am asking for your vote as the republican candidate for County Attorney of Hardin County, Texas. Thank you and God Bless!
