Governor Rick Perry Will Not Seek Reelection

Governor Rick Perry

One always has to be cautious when discussing politics. Whether you liked him or not, Governor Rick Perry announced that he will not see a 4th term:

 

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Monday that he would not run for an unprecedented fourth term as governor.

Perry, 63, is the longest-serving governor in Texas history, having taken the post in 2000 when George W. Bush left to become president. He made his announcement this afternoon at a Caterpillar equipment dealership in San Antonio, a location intended to highlight Perry’s reputation as a job creator.

Perry did not address whether he would run again for the GOP president nomination in 2016.

“I will announce any other further considerations in due time,” he told the crowd of supporters assembled for the announcement. Perry ran an unsuccessful campaign for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a prize that was claimed by Mitt Romney.

He was introduced by his wife, Anita Perry and was later joined on stage by his family.

Perry — who was recently ranked No. 2 among the nation’s governors for job creation — said he would spend the next 18 months working to create more jobs in Texas and to build the state’s economy.

“We have created the strongest economy in the nation,” said Perry, who touted what he considered other major accomplishments, such as seven balanced budgets, a state water plan that will go the voters and maintaining Texas’ tax burden among the lowest in the nation.

“We Texans are not afraid of a good fight,” he said. “Most of all, I am most proud of what we’ve done to create jobs and opportunity in Texas.”

 

Governor Rick Perry did contribute positively to the economic environment of the local North Austin / Round Rock area by attracting and recruiting large companies from out of state. What Governor Perry will do next is anyone’s guess and we’ll be watching to report on it as soon as possible.
