From a campaign press release:
Democratic activist Rick Koster enters County Commissioner race for Collin County Precinct 2
Allen, TX January 4, 2010 – Rick Koster has filed as a candidate for County Commissioner on the Democratic ticket. The Allen engineer hopes to expand citizen representation at the Collin County Commissioner's court.
“Our county will face challenges in the coming years,” the candidate said on filing. “The most important center on managing growth. It will take imagination and practical know-how to maintain the quality of our air and our access to water, and to keep our streets and highways free of congestion. County residents need to be aware of these challenges, and to participate in the debate to find solutions.”
Since graduating from Yale University with a degree in Electrical Engineering, Koster has worked for high-tech firms and the US Government. For the last 14 years he has focused professionally on the Functional Verification of digital designs. Koster has been a delegate to 2 national conventions and one state convention. He ran for the Texas State House in 2006 and currently serves as a precinct chair and president of the nascent Texas Democratic Men's Club.
“I have over 25 years of experience in the world of high technology,” says Koster. “I want to bring that perspective to handling the challenges facing Collin County.”
