I am Troy Konvicka, and I want to be your County Commissioner for Precinct 1 in Bandera County.
I grew up in Bandera county, attended Bandera High School and was active in FFA and rodeo, graduating in 1992.
After graduation, I married my wife Karen. We have been married for 26 years and have two children and four grandchildren.
I enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1996 and served 22 years, starting in Ft Sill, Oklahoma. I graduated basic training and advanced individual training as an honor graduate.
My first duty was with the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell, Kentucky as a fire direction specialist in field artillery. Then, I transferred to Germany with 2nd BN 3rd Field Artillery.
After being selected to the U.S. Army Special Forces, I attended the Special Warfare Center and school at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.
After completing the qualification course and earning the Green Beret and the Military Occupational Specialty of Special Forces Engineer, I was assigned to 1st Special Forces Group, Fort Lewis, Washington, where I had multiple deployments to Iraq and throughout the Pacific Command.
I earned the rank of master sergeant and served as an operation detachment-alpha team sergeant specializing in military freefall operation.
Then I was assigned to the United States Special Operation Command as a non-commissioned officer in charge for the Warriors Care Program at the San Antonio Military Medical Center.
While in this position, I directly influenced the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded warriors, and assisted family members.
After retiring, I have dedicated my time to supporting the healing and recovery of warriors with the mission of bringing them home as the operation director at Warriors Heart Treatment Center here in Bandera.
Supporting active duty military, veterans, police officers and first responders, I have worked with Texas state certification boards, the emergency management agency and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for maintaining certification and state requirements.
I care about Bandera and preserving its history, while still bringing the county into the 21st Century.
My wife and I produce the “Riding on Faith Rodeo” in Bandera to provide a family orientated environment for locals and visitors to enjoy the Cowboy Way of Life.
Also, I am actively involved with my church family at Ridin’ the River Cowboy Fellowship and am active with the Bandera Pro Rodeo board as vice president.
I want to be a vital part of the community that I grew up in and to serve as a voice for the voters in matters that will shape and grow Bandera County now and in the future.
I am asking for your votes on March 3 at the Primary Election and the privilege to support and work for you as the Percent 1 Commissioner in matters that will enhance and make our home a place where you can be proud to raise a family.
