About Trever

Trever Nehls has dedicated his life to service.  At the age of 19, he enlisted in the US Army National Guard.  He was deployed to defend our freedom in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait, and commanded troops at the company, battalion and brigade level.  Trever is a graduate of the U.S. Army War College, the Joint Forces Staff College and the Command and General Staff College. This past August, he retired with the rank of Colonel after 33 years of dedicated service.  He is a decorated combat veteran, most notably the recipient of three Bronze Star medals. While not deployed, Trever served his local community at home as a law enforcement professional.

In 1993, Trever began his Texas law enforcement service with the Sugar Land Police Department, serving in various roles until he was elected as Fort Bend County Precinct 4 Constable in 2012.  He served two four-year terms as Constable of Fort Bend County Precinct 4.  During his tenure as Constable, Trever cut unnecessary waste, instituted body cameras for all his deputies, and kept our communities safe.  He also waded through waist deep flood waters during Hurricane Harvey to rescue dozens of people and pets.

Trever comes from a long line of military and law enforcement family professionals. His father, Edwin Nehls, served with the U.S. Army in Korea and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, our nation’s second highest medal for heroic actions for his bravery in hand to hand and small arms combat exchanges in Pau-gol Korea. Following military service, Edwin joined the Dodge County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Office, where he became the elected Sheriff. Trever’s older brother, Todd Nehls, also served in the U.S. Army for over 36 years retiring with the rank of Colonel. Todd also served with the Dodge County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Office and also served as the elected Sheriff. Trever’s twin brother, Troy Nehls, served the U.S. Army with 21 years of admirable service, retiring as a Major. Troy later served as the Sheriff of Fort Bend County, Texas. Currently, Troy serves as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressional District 22. Combined they have over 100 years of law enforcement service and over 90 years of military service.

Today, Trever is the President of a Fort Bend County based biotechnology company.   He will take his experience in the public and private sectors to make Fort Bend County government efficient and effective. He’s 100% pro-business and believes taxes and spending is out of control and would work to cut the waste to reduce the tax burden on Fort Bend County residents.

Outside of his professional life, Trever is engaged in numerous community service organizations such as the Exchange Club and Rotary Club.  Trever is also a life member of the VFW Post 3903 in Rosenberg.  He and his wife Kerri are raising their three children Madison, Wyatt, and Parker here in Fort Bend County.  Trever and his family are active members of Grand Parkway Baptist Church.  They have four dogs named Charlie, Duke, Cookie and Champ

ISSUES

Business

Trever Nehls is the President of a Fort Bend County based biotechnology company. As President he oversees the business’s employees, budget, international and domestic sales, and research & development. Trever strongly believes government should support small businesses as they are the lifeblood of our economy.  He is 100% pro-business and would put his experience to work to make Fort Bend County the best county to do business in the state of Texas, by working directly with business to streamline burdensome government regulation and processes.

Spending/Taxes

As the former Precinct 4 Constable, Trever Nehls has firsthand experience running a county office and dealing with the budgeting process and Commissioner’s Court. He’s seen the waste and overspending for years by our county government, and if elected County Judge will find and cut unnecessary spending and lower the tax burden on all Fort Bend residents.

Crime/Safety

As the former Fort Bend County Precinct 4 Constable and someone who served over 30 years in  law enforcement, Trever knows what it takes to make Fort Bend County safe. Fort Bend County has seen an increase in crime over the last year and our county leadership is doing nothing to combat it. As County Judge, Trever will use his decades of law enforcement experience to work with law enforcement partners throughout Fort Bend County to make sure they have the staffing and resources they need to keep the streets of Fort Bend County safe.
