The Texas Senate has commended Pearsall’s Clifton Stacy for service to Frio County and his leadership as a member of the Evergreen Underwater Conservation District Board of Directors with a proclamation during a ceremony at his home on Tuesday, January 5.

“The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to recognize Clifton Stacy for his many contributions to Frio County and for his outstanding service to the community,” outgoing District 19 Texas Senator Pete Flores said. “An esteemed citizen and public servant, Clifton Stacy is a trusted expert in water conservation, agricultural practices, and resource management, and he served as a member of the Evergreen Underwater Conservation District Board of Directors for nearly 35 years.
