Maci Newsom said Friday she would be a candidate for commissioner for Hopkins County Precinct 1.
In making the announcement, she said she was born and raised in Hopkins County. She is a graduate of Sulphur Springs High School and Columbus State University.
Newsom is married to Jonathan Newsom, who was also born and raised in Hopkins County, and is the proud mother of their two children, Noah, who is eight years old, and Anna-Claire, who is six. Her family resides in Sulphur Springs. Newsom’s parents, Glenn and Leeta Mattison, and her husband's parents, Hopkins County Judge Robert and Robbie Newsom, also live in Sulphur Springs.
Maci and Jonathan were an active duty military family for 11 years. After leaving the military, they returned to Hopkins County and immediately immersed themselves into the community. Newsom has held her Texas State Insurance License for 15 years.
Maci and Jonathan own a general practice law firm on North Davis Street in Sulphur Springs where she works as office manager. She also serves as the vice-president of the Hopkins County Republican Women’s Club, and will serve as the club’s president during the upcoming electionyear. She is also the treasurer for Bright Star Baseball.
In announcing her candidacy, Newsom adds, “If I have the privilege of being elected commissioner of Precinct 1, I will focus all of my energy into making Hopkins County an even greater place to live and raise our families. And, while I won’t guarantee that I will be able to fix every road, I can promise to represent the citizens of Hopkins County to the best of my ability. I will work hard, and be accessible and available to the residents of Precinct 1. Hopkins County is my home, and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to serve the community I love so dearly.”
