SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — "We're going to experiment," said incoming Grayson County Judge Bruce Dawsey. "No idea is a bad idea."

Dawsey plans on addressing several issues after he starts his four-year term on January 1, including improving roads and preparing for growth.

"TI in the process of building, and then the GlobiTech expansion... you know, we need to look and plan for that extra revenue and what we are going to do with it," he said.

Dawsey is concerned about being a good steward of taxpayer revenue.

"You want to have a healthy budget, but you need to have a balanced budget," he said. "You don't need to hold onto more money than is necessary to the detriment of projects and roads."

Dawsey retired from the Sherman Police Department earlier this month. He believes his background in law enforcement will help him in the new challenge.

He wants to explore ideas that could be beneficial to the county.

"I want to look at some of the out-of-the-box ideas; you know it may not be possible to accomplish everything, but what would it take to get the DART rail line up from Grayson County to Oklahoma?" Dawsey asked.
