Burnet County Precinct 2 Commissioner Russell Graeter stunned his colleagues Tuesday morning when he announced he would not seek re-election to a fifth term next year.

Graeter made his announcement during public comments at the regular Commissioners Court meeting.

“County Judge (James Oakley), fellow commissioners, citizens of Burnet County and especially to my constituents of Precinct 2, it is with much consideration, mixed emotions and many prayers that I have decided to not seek re-election of Burnet County Commissioner Precinct 2,” Graeter said.

“As you have heard me say through the years, 'I love my job.' I have had the privilege of serving some amazing people. It has been very rewarding and many major accomplishments have been made during my four terms as your commissioner.”
