“I am excited to accept this opportunity to work at the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce. Bastrop has shaped me into the young man I am today, and I want to show people that we're more than just the Colorado River, Buc-ee’s, and the town that caught on fire. I'm happy to have the opportunity to represent a bigger part of this community and am so excited to represent Bastrop.”
 
Mr. White officially starts with the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, December 26, with regular lobby hours of Monday-Friday from 8am to 4pm.
