President Roddam welcomed the District’s newly appointed Director, John
Redington, to the POSGCD Board of Directors and administered the Oath of Office at the October 11th board meeting.
Redington grew up helping his grandparents on the family ranch in the Sharp/Lilac area and later graduated from Southwestern University with a Bachelor’s in History and a minor in Political Science. He then earned a Juris Doctorate in 2003 from St. Mary’s University School of Law. After running a successful law practice with offices in Cameron and Temple, Redington became the First Assistant District Attorney/Special Crimes Prosecutor for Milam and later Falls County. Currently, Redington is the Senior Associate at the firm of Allison, Bass, Magee, LLP where he represents counties, cities, school districts, groundwater districts, and other local entities in litigation and other legal affairs. He is the Past President of the Cameron Rotary Club, and a member of the Lilac Cemetery Association, Milam County Bar Association, and Texas District & County Attorneys Association.
Mr. Redington lives in Lilac, Texas, where he continues his family’s legacy in the beef cattle industry as Manager of the YX Ranch. Redington says he hopes his years of experience representing public entities will serve the Board well. “Out of an outstanding group of candidates, I am so honored that the Milam County Commissioners Court appointed me to represent the people of Milam County in managing our precious aquifers”, he said. An avid outdoorsman, Redington says he intends to protect the District’s valuable natural resources for future generations.
