County Commissioner, Precinct #2 - Scott Haag

 The job of the county commissioner calls for hands-on service delivery, as well as policy-making decisions about a variety of important matters.

Four commissioners, each elected from a quarter of the county's population, serve along with the county judge on the commissioners court. Many people know that the commissioners court is responsible for building and maintaining the roads and bridges of the county. In Comal county, the roads are centralized under a unit road system.

The commissioners court also has the responsibility to adopt the budget and tax rate that is sufficient to fund the personnel, equipment and infrastructure necessary to deliver the services provided by the county. Typically, the commissioners court is responsible for conducting business on behalf of the county, and only the commissioners court can enter into contracts on behalf of the county.

Biography

Scott Haag is a 5th generation citizen of Comal County and has lived in Comal County all but three years of his life.

Mr. Haag has been in public service the majority of his life. As a State Trooper for the Texas Department of Public Safety, he served the people of the State of Texas for 28 years, working regular day-to-day enforcement patrols as well as working numerous special assignments and projects. Scott retired from the Texas DPS in 2008.

In 2009 Haag decided to run for Comal County Commissioner Pct #2. In November 2010, Mr. Haag was elected to serve a four-year term as the Comal County Commissioner for Precinct #2. He was re-elected in November 2014 to serve a second term as County Commissioner.

As Commissioner he was instrumental in forming a Stakeholders group to consider the citizens’ interest in forming a Groundwater Conservation District (GCD) for the Trinity Aquifer in Comal County. This Stakeholders group was formed after the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) began exploring the possibility of placing Comal County with another neighboring GCD. In 2015 the Texas Legislature formed the Comal Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. In 2015, Haag was the recipient of the Chair of the Board Award by the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce for his work on establishing the Comal Trinity Groundwater Conservation District.

Mr. Haag remains active and involved with his community. He is currently is an Opa and Past President of the Wurstfest Association, member of the New Braunfels and Bulverde Spring Branch Chamber of Commerce, the New Braunfels Elks Lodge, Anhalt, several Republican Clubs in Comal County, and is a long-time member and serving on the finance board of the First Protestant Church in New Braunfels.  He is also a Baron with the Braunfels Foundation Trust.

Mr. Haag and his (beautiful and loving) wife, Sandra, have two grown daughters. He is an Eagle Scout, attended Texas A&M and Southwest Texas State Universities, enjoys dancing, traveling, and salt water fishing with his wife, and really enjoys playing golf…whenever time and his wife allow.
