ATLANTA, Texas -- Mayor Travis Ransom announced Thursday that he has filed for a place on the 2022 Republican primary ballot and is running to become the next Cass County Judge.

Ransom first announced his intent to run two months ago, following Judge Becky Wilbanks public announcement that she would not be seeking re-election, according to a news release. The filing makes it official.

The announcement touted his time as mayor, spotlighted his opposition to the contentious Marvin Nichols Reservoir and listed highlights of his public service career.

Ransom is a 24-year veteran of the Army Reserve, where he serves as a Command Sergeant Major, and has active duty experience in Afghanistan. He is active in civic groups including the ARTEX Council of Governments and the Atlanta Lions Club.

He is an independent insurance agent with Offenhauser & Co. and previously worked as a legislative aide in the Texas Senate for 11 years.

Ransom and his wife, Emily, live in Atlanta, have three children and attend First Baptist Church.
