There are two candidates facing off in the March 4 GOP Primary for the office of Navarro County Treasurer - incumbent Frank Hull and challenger Ryan Douglas. Here are profiles of the two candidates, appearing in ballot order.
Frank Hull isn’t new to politics. He’s been in the Navarro County Republican Party before there was a strong Republican presence in the county, and he’s been on the city council and he ran for county treasurer 20 years ago. He won that seat three years ago, and now is seeking reelection.
At 30, Ryan Douglas looks younger than he is. He’s worked for a series of accountants, including Evonne Blackwell and Tonja Barnabee, and now is working part-time for the County Treasurer’s office. He works part-time as a bookkeeper, as well.
