About Trent

Trent Bass entered the race for Grayson County Judge for the same reason he ran for Treasurer four years ago; he wants to make a difference in our local government.


A background in finance gives Trent a unique understanding about how to get the most out of every tax dollar.  Trent was a former financial advisor and understands the value of conservative spending. He also recognizes the importance of building teamwork to accomplish goals.  Trent has brought that teamwork into the county office as Treasurer and will continue to build the spirit of working together while serving as the County Judge.  By working together, areas in our government will build efficiency. As Grayson County continues to grow, leadership in how to spend our valuable tax dollars will keep our county marketable due to a lower tax base.


A family man, Trent is devoted to his wife and daughters and is active in both his church and our community.

  • Of all of the candidates, Trent possesses the best balance of visionary leadership, fiscal responsibility, and empathy with the Grayson County constituency - which is why I believe he will do the best job of performing the duties of Grayson County Judge.
