Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – Hays County Commissioner Precinct 1 Debbie Gonzales Ingalsbe was recently elected president of the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas (CJCAT), a statewide organization with more than 1,200 active members.
Several hundred county officials and guests from across the state honored Ingalsbe as she took her oath of office at the CJCAT Annual Conference held in Odessa on Oct. 3-6.
The CJCAT promotes the interests of county government through continuing education and active participation in governmental affairs, particularly the Texas Legislature.
“The people of Texas and the members of the CJCAT will be well served by the leadership provided by Commissioner Ingalsbe and the other officers,” said Jim Allison, general counsel to the CJCAT. “We look forward to a successful year for the organization.”
As president of the CJCAT Executive Board, Ingalsbe will keep apprised of legislative proposals and interim studies that will impact county government and the services it provides to the citizen taxpayers. Last year Ingalsbe served as CJCAT first vice president; her duties included traveling to Austin during the 82nd Session of the Texas Legislature to testify in committee hearings on behalf of Texas counties.
Ingalsbe is a former president of the South Texas County Judges and Commissioners Association, a sub-region of the CJCAT.
