NORTH TEXAS - Ellis County Judge Carol Bush was overwhelmingly voted as the lead chief elected official for the North Central Texas Workforce Development Board this past week, according to a news release issued by the Texas Workforce Commission.
The board’s membership is comprised of leaders from the business and education communities, as well as those assisting with economic and social development within their respected community.
The CEOs in each workforce development area appoint the members of the local boards.
“Judge Bush brings an excellent perspective of the needs of citizens living in not only Ellis County, but our entire region. The board is excited to have her as its Lead CEO,” said WSNCT Executive Director David Setzer.
An ex-officio member of the board of directors for the Midlothian and Waxahachie Chambers of Commerce, Bush is a founding and current member of the board of directors of the Gingerbread House Children’s Advocacy Center.
Bush, appointed as county judge in April 2009, was elected the position last November and has served as the Secretary of the 2010 State Convention of the Republican Party of Texas and is also a recent appointee to Governor Rick Perry’s 2011 Inaugural Committee.
The North Central Texas Workforce Development Board’s mission is to advance an innovative work system, which fosters a competitive economy and improves the quality of life in North Central Texas through employment, education, and economic development.
