PLUM GROVE — “BJ” Kevin Burton Jr has announced his candidacy for Liberty County Commissioner Pct. 3 in the Cleveland and Plum Grove area.

The father of three has been married to his wife, Lacy, for 10 years, and they raise their family in Plum Grove, where he was born and raised.

As commissioner, he hopes to have an open-door policy that will enable communication with all residents, including the growing number of Spanish speakers in the area.

“I want to make sure every person’s concerns are heard and addressed. I will listen to any and all issues brought to me, but I will not make promises I can not keep,” Burton said.

If elected, he plans to be transparent and keep residents up to date on projects in Precinct 3.

He plans on getting to know the precinct and being prepared to perform preventative maintenance while aiming to rebuild roads as money is available.

Burton has worked in several fields that he believes will aid him in the commissioner role, working in the logging business and chemical plants, where he served as a safety coordinator.

“I have owned my own business for the last several years and work throughout Southeast Texas,” Burton said.

During that time, his company focused on ranch-related work across Southeast Texas, including fence work, hay baling, and building.

Burton is also an avid volunteer with the Cleveland Livestock Show, formerly known as Dairy Days, where he serves as president.

Burton invites anyone with questions or events to reach out to him and visit about his candidacy at

“I would appreciate your support and respectfully ask for your vote. I am open to any questions you might have. I look forward to serving as the next Precinct 3 Commissioner,” said Burton.
