For the first time in nearly three decades, Montgomery County will have a new county clerk. Current County Clerk Mark Turnbull’s decision not to run for re-election has created an opening in county government that Brandon Steinmann is seeking to fill.
Steinmann, who currently serves as the district director for Congressman Kevin Brady, officially filed for the position on Monday, the last day candidates could file to be on the primary ballot. A longtime supporter of Turnbull, Steinmann says he will follow in his footsteps if elected county clerk:
“One of my earliest political campaigns was for Mark’s first campaign and I am excited about the opportunity to continue the good work he has been doing as our County Clerk,” said Steinmann. “I am a lifelong conservative, and I will fight to ensure transparency and efficiency in this crucial county office.”
A native of Conroe, Steinmann graduated from Conroe High School where he helped found the first High School Republican Club. Before going to work for Brady, he worked for then-governor Rick Perry, and has also been the government relations executive for a billion dollar company.
“When I first heard Ronald Reagan put into words the beliefs I held – Faith in God, free enterprise, limited government, the Right to Life – I knew I wanted to enter public service to fight for them and the Republican Party,” Steinmann said. “With the Biden Administration threatening our economy, values, and way of life, Texas needs strong conservative leaders to step up and fight at all levels of government. I look forward to using my experience to help my friends and neighbors here in Montgomery County grow and prosper.”
Steinmann is involved with numerous local civic organizations. He and his wife Jessica, who worked in the Justice Department during the Trump Administration, current reside in The Woodlands with their dog Riley.
