Pfluger honors retiring Tom Green County judge

WASHINGTON On Thursday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) honored retiring Tom Green County Judge Steve Floyd in a speech on the Floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, a press release stated.

Judge Floyd has served the community for more than three decades, impacting countless lives and leaving a legacy of unmatched leadership.

Remarks as delivered by Pfluger:

“I rise today to recognize Tom Green County Judge Steve Floyd, a faithful leader of our community who is retiring from elected office at the end of this year.

“Judge Floyd has dedicated his life to our community, with more than 30 years of service as Justice of the Peace, County Commissioner, and now as County Judge. Whether he was leading the county, handing down justice, or just mowing the courthouse lawn: he led with wisdom and kindness.

“Judge Floyd had a monumental impact on the partnership between San Angelo and Goodfellow Air Force Base, where his community leadership and visionary ideas strengthened the bond and paved the way for San Angelo to receive three unpreceded Altus award trophies for exceptional community partnership—more than any other base has received.

“Judge Floyd’s retirement is bittersweet today and if you’re watching this morning Judge, please know that we’re not just saying farewell to a good friend and a good leader, but someone who has been an incredible public servant for over 30 years. We are grateful for the decades of service to our community, and we wish you the very best in your upcoming retirement.

“Congratulations on a job well done, Judge Floyd.”
