Representative Leighton Schubert Resigns

From KWHI 1280


District 13 State Representative Leighton Schubert has announced that he is resigning from the State House, effective February 4th to take a position with Blinn College.

Leighton Schubert

Schubert will be working in the General Counsel’s Office at Blinn and will also be involved in governmental affairs between the College and the Texas Legislature.  Melvin Waxler is retiring as Executive Vice Chancellor and General Counsel for Blinn effective January 31st.  Ted Hajovsky will then take over as lead council for Blinn and Leighton Schubert will be working under him.

Schubert previously announced in December that he would not be seeking a third term in the Texas House. Under Texas law, the Governor has to call a special election now to fill Schubert’s seat until the General Election in November.

Schubert says after he announced his retirement, an opportunity arose with Blinn.

Schubert says Blinn College is on the forefront of preparing future generations to meet the job demands of tomorrow’s economy.

Schubert says he and his family, “are excited about having the opportunity to play a part in the future success of Blinn College.”

Schubert was first elected in 2015 and is in his second term representing Texas House District 13 that includes Washington, Austin, Burleson, Colorado, Fayette, Grimes, and Lavaca Counties.

Schubert serves on the House Committee on Administration, Energy Resources and Special Purpose Districts.

Schubert is a practicing attorney in Caldwell.
