Montgomery County attorney urges no action on polling place regulations
Remembering Montgomery County’s community leaders who passed in 2019
Montgomery County Attorney J D Lambright passed away peacefully March 9 surrounded by his wife Belinda, extended family and friends. He was 69 and had recently been diagnosed with cancer.
“He was a great leader, boss, attorney and friend. His vision, leadership and devotion to justice and doing the right thing will be remembered and his impact upon the community will be long lasting,” said B.D. Griffin who became the County Attorney following Lambright’s passing.
First elected in 2012, Lambright wasted little time transforming the county attorney’s office to be more responsive and cooperative and keeping more cases in-house. In fact, Lambright made his service to the county and residents a priority by putting together a team to provide information requested under the Texas Open Records Act in a timely manner. He worked with individuals on their requests to ensure an expedited process for releasing information. Following his death, the county created an ethics commission honoring Lambright.
