Dear Friend,

I’m Charlie Riley, a proud father and grandfather, a loving husband, and a community servant. Helping others is what I do best. Whether I am working as the Precinct Operations Manager, organizing a fundraiser, cooking barbeque for a local organization, or making music at church, you can always count on me to give 100%.As your next Commissioner of Precinct 2, you can count on me to use my relentless energy to make our community a better place to work and live. - Charlie

My Vision as Commissioner for Precinct 2

1.  Improve safety and security for our citizens.  Listening to my constituents is the most important thing I can do--”the constituent is always right”.  Public offices exist solely to serve the people.  Second, and equally as important, I will continue to maintain a strong relationship with law enforcement.  The quality of life for the citizens of Montgomery County is my main concern and I know that feeling safe and secure is a cornerstone for their happiness.

2.  Lead a fiscally conservative and transparent office.  It is my desire to lower the tax burden on the citizens of Precinct 2.  We enjoy great freedom in this country yet the taxpayer is is often shackled by wasteful spending and “bridges that go nowhere”.  As Commissioner, I would take every opportunity to ensure the citizens of Montgomery County are able to keep more of their paychecks and enjoy the liberties of our amazing country.  To that end, I will remain committed to investigating all funding options that would minimize taxpayer debt.

3.  Increase mobility, promote industrial growth, and pro-actively plan for progress.  I believe that, a flourishing business community will strengthen our economy.  In addition to improving safety and minimizing taxpayer burden, I will look to the future of our community by helping to create an environment that is attractive for businesses.  This includes increasing mobility through current and future road projects, preserving and improving public infrastructure, and working with local government to create a low business tax burden.  With these steps we can bring more businesses to our community and therefore lower personal taxes.

4.  Continue serving Montgomery County with Southern values and dedication to the Lord.  I have been a part of Montgomery County since 1971.  Because of my love for God and Southern values, I have contributed with hard work and dedication.  This will not change if I am elected as your Commissioner.  Those who know me will tell you that I am honest and true to my word.  If you do not know me, I hope to be given the chance to serve your needs as I always have for our community.

“I have known Charlie Riley for 30 plus years. He is a man who loves the Lord and his family and who serves his community in many ways. Charlie is involved in his church, has served on Magnolia School Board for years, supports our youth and seniors and known for cooking that famous Charlie “Daddy” Riley BBQ for numerous benefits and fundraisers. Serving as the Operations Manager for years at Pct. 2 Commissioner’s Office makes him the most qualified for Commissioner. A man with integrity who has compassion for the people he serves.

John & Rui Martin

My wife Rui and I have known the Riley family for over 40 years. Rui worked with Charlie’s father at Precinct 2 and I have worked with Charlie as a former Montgomery County Commissioner and real estate developer. Being a lifelong residents of Montgomery County I feel it is important to have someone that has a long term local history and perspective in Montgomery County. It is also important to have someone that has had a lifetime of service to our county. Charlie and his wife Deanne have done this from serving as President of the School board , serving his Church and serving the kids of their community. Rui and I support Charlie for Commissioner Precinct 2 Montgomery County, Texas

Riley, Clark will serve county well as commissioners
Posted: Friday, February 14, 2014 10:26 pm
In the two open races for county commissioner seats, one experienced county employee and one newcomer to county politics who has a diverse background in business, construction and development have risen above the crop.
The Courier is endorsing Charlie Riley for Precinct 2 commissioner and Jim Clark for Precinct 4 commissioner in the March 4 Republican primary.
Riley’s 13 years of work with Precinct 2 — overseeing 42 employees, the budget, equipment and material as the precinct’s manager of operations — as well as his nine years of service on the Magnolia Independent School District board bring the full package together for a county commissioner seat.
Riley knows all the problem areas and construction needs on the 800 miles of roads in Precinct 2. He has managed the $5.5 million annual budget for the precinct and created cost savings in certain areas to ensure more roads can be paved and improved. Last year alone, with $1.3 million allotted for paving roads, he found a way to allocate another $1.3 million out of his budget for more roadwork.
Handling a larger budget and fast growth? Riley has proven he can do that while serving on the Magnolia school board and helping that district meet growth needs with new schools, while making tough personnel decisions regarding administrators and other positions.
He understands, at some point, a road bond may be needed but believes projects should be identified and presented thoroughly to voters. He has identified FM 2978 and continued work on FM 1488 as the major areas of concern in Precinct 2.
Riley also is in touch with the residents in his precinct, attending homeowners meetings.....

.....The Courier believes Charlie Riley is the best candidate to serve as Precinct 2 commissioner, and Jim Clark is the top choice to be the next Precinct 4 commissioner.
Early voting starts Tuesday.

Conroe Courier - Sheriff Tommy Gage & Constable David Hill Support Charlie Riley for Commissioner

CONROE COURIER Article
Sheriff supports Riley for Precinct 2 commissioner

Constable supports Riley, too

To the editor:

I’ve known Charlie Riley for 40 years, and I know his kids and his grandkids. He’s just a good man, period – a man with integrity and a man of his word. He loves this county.

One of the most important things about Charlie Riley is that he’s a good Christian man. He leads the singing and the band at Magnolia Cowboy Church, where I go to church. We’re both on the building committee, and he’s a man of his beliefs. He has been Commissioner Craig Doyal’s No.2 man for a long time, he knows the job and loves the people in Precinct 2. He gets there early, stays late and he’s the man for the job.

As the Montgomery County sheriff, I understand there’s only so much money to go around. I will be happy to work with him, because he’s pro-law enforcement. He will listen and let me justify why we need more equipment and vehicles. When he says he can help, but may tell me that there’s only so much he can do, I can deal with that because I know he will be truthful with me.

I recommend Charlie Riley, I support him and I’m happy to endorse him for Precinct 2 county commissioner.

Tommy Gage
Montgomery County sheriff

Constable supports Riley, too

To the editor:

I’ve known Charlie Riley since he was 14 years old and watched him grow up. Working for Commissioner Craig Doyal, Charlie and I have worked closely together. He’s as honest and hardworking as they come.

Charlie Riley is involved on all sides of the community, working on the educational foundation board and the school board. Whatever’s going on in our community, he’s involved, from Project Prom to the ag shows. It’s not a power thing for Charlie, it’s actual service. That’s why I’m still working in my job, and he sees it the same way. We want to give back to the community with our efforts.

There is dynamic growth out here in our part of Montgomery County, and he’s been on top of it under Commissioner Doyal. Transportation and mobility are key issues for our future, from extending Woodlands Parkway to connecting Sawmill to 2920. Once those lanes are open, we’re going to grow like crazy. Charlie responds well to the public and he has been making many decisions already. It will take someone else a year or two to become familiar with Precinct 2, but Charlie could step in and do a great job tomorrow as Precinct 2 county commissioner.

Riley also is in touch with the residents in his precinct, attending homeowners meetings.

Clark is a three-tool candidate in a crowded Precinct 4 race to replace the retiring Ed Rinehart.

We found all candidates in this race to be good-hearted and truly concerned about the East Montgomery County communities.

But it is Clark who brings successful business experience along with proven project management in construction and real estate to the table.

Clark also has proven to be a community advocate on the ground level, working with other residents and elected officials in trying to stop the injection well project from coming to the Conroe oilfield. As a former worker at that well, Clark will be a good asset for residents on future environmental issues the county may face.

He’s a fiscal conservative and believes government should limit its duties to the responsibilities it’s charged with. He believes in a zero-based budget and does not support a venture capitalist approach, such as seems to be the case with the construction and sale of the Joe Corley Detention Center.

As a lifelong resident of East Montgomery County, Clark identifies with the residents and also has identified the major needs to meet future growth, such as along the Texas 242 and FM 1314 corridors.

Now owning his own commercial real estate broker firm, we believe Clark is financially savvy and will make the most out of taxpayer dollars.

The combination of these two for the open seats on Commissioners Court brings a level of stability, along with valuable experience and a fresh outlook on the needs of Montgomery County now and in the future.

The Courier believes Charlie Riley is the best candidate to serve as Precinct 2 commissioner, and Jim Clark is the top choice to be the next Precinct 4 commissioner.
