1. Please tell us briefly about yourself and why you are interested in a position on the Brownfield ISD Board of Trustees…

Jimmy Hammons, incumbent candidate for At Large position
    

I am married and have two children and four grandchildren.  I am an attorney and began practicing in Brownfield, Texas in 1982.  I have been president of the United Fund of Terry County for a number of years since its inception.  I am a past president of the Brownfield Chamber of Commerce, Brownfield Optimist Club, Brownfield Little League, Brownfield Babe Ruth League, and Brownfield Girl’s Softball Association.  I am a past chairman and organizer of the Brownfield Industrial Development Corporation.  For 15 years, I was the youth director at First United Methodist Church in Brownfield, Texas.  I went into the practice of law to help people and make a difference.  I strongly believe it is our responsibility to serve others.  Whether it has been through meeting the spiritual needs of teens or developing economic opportunities in Brownfield, or even giving tennis lessons to young people hungry to learn, I have spent my life trying to make Brownfield a better place to live.  My position on the Brownfield ISD Board of Trustees is another step in that progress.…

Cars raced all over town to find cover from the storm under carports, gas pump awnings and drive in windows at the banks.…
