County Judge Tom Vandergriff
Upon learning of the passing of former County Judge Tom Vandergriff, current County Judge Glen Whitley released the following statement:
“Today, our county lost a great man and I lost a great friend. In 1997, I was honored to be sworn into the Tarrant County Commissioners Court by Judge Tom Vandergriff. For the next 10 years, I had the privilege to work under his leadership and learn from him. And while I admired his tireless work to expand economic growth and opportunity for Tarrant County, what I came to admire most was the man himself. He was a unique leader who saw opportunities where others saw obstacles and who could find solutions when others found problems. He served in public office not because he wanted to be something, but because he wanted to do something. We have lost a great leader, but his impact will never be lost on this county or on the people who knew him. May God bless the memory of Judge Tom Vandergriff.”
Judge Whitley will be available to the media at 5 p.m. today in his office on the fifth floor of the Tarrant County Administration Building, 100 E. Weatherford St., in downtown Fort Worth.
