MONTGOMERY – Local business leader and sixth generation Montgomery County resident Will Metcalf has formally announced his candidacy for State Representative, District 16, the position Brandon Creighton is vacating in his bid for Commissioner of Agriculture.
“I have a deep connection to this community and the people,” Metcalf said. “I want to go to Austin to make sure the values that Montgomery County residents hold dear are represented and bring a new generation of conservative leadership to the state legislature.”
Metcalf is a fresh face with a familiar name. He is the son of former Conroe Mayor Tommy Metcalf and wife Mary Ann, and his Metcalf ancestors’ presence in Montgomery County dates back to 1847. But Will Metcalf has certainly done his part to continue the Metcalf legacy, with his community involvement through organizations including, but not limited to, Conroe Noon Lions Club, Montgomery County Fair Association Advisory Board, Conroe Industrial Development Corporation, Greater Conroe Economic Development Council, and Conroe Family YMCA Board of Directors. Supporters say Metcalf’s genuine enthusiasm and love of people spurs his contribution and participation. Recently, Metcalf was spotted bidding on animals at the East Montgomery County Fair and Rodeo Auction in New Caney.
While many feel Metcalf has devoted his life to the people of his community, and a big heart and being civic minded are important, Metcalf brings much more to the table. His experience in the financial sector at Spirit of Texas Bank gives Metcalf the skills, insight, and understanding to confidently promise he will be a knowledgeable and conservative voice on behalf of the people of Montgomery County from day one in office.
“I won’t need on the job training when it comes to understanding and ensuring our State Budget doesn’t get out of control,” Metcalf said. “Fighting for what we need and making sure the state stays within its means is my goal.”
Metcalf says as state representative, he will work hard to fight for the conservative values he shares with his community, keeping Texas a shining example for business and job creation.
Will Metcalf was born in Conroe and attended Conroe ISD schools, and then Sam Houston State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice. He and his wife, Megan, have been married for six years, and are the proud parents of beautiful 2-year old twin daughters, Amelia and Elizabeth. Megan is the Vice President of the Conroe Service League and a member of the Lake Conroe Area Republican Women and an associate member of North Shore Republican Women. The Metcalf’s attend Fellowship of Montgomery Church.
Metcalf will be hosting a Campaign Kick-Off Fundraiser at the Lone Star Convention Center on Monday, October 14, from 5:30 – 8 p.m.
