FREEPORT — Troy Brimage is giving up his current office to focus his energy on winning another one.

Brimage announced his resignation as Freeport's mayor Monday night as he launches a campaign to replace House speaker Dennis Bonnen in the Texas Legislature. Voters awarded Brimage a second two-year term as mayor in May after first electing him in May 2017.
