Brenton Lane was born and raised in Robinson, graduated from Robinson High School and is a graduate of Texas State Technical College and Baylor University. Brenton began working for the Texas Department of Transportation in 2004, after obtaining his Associate of Applied Science in Architectural/Civil Design from TSTC. He worked as an engineering technician for TXDOT while he attended Baylor University part-time. In 2013, Brenton graduated Baylor with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering and became a licensed Professional Engineer in 2015. Brenton has spent the majority of his career with TXDOT in the area of Design. From 2013 to 2015, he managed the Bruceville-Eddy to Hewitt interstate reconstruction project and after completion moved back to design to help lead the Waco District Design office. Brenton and his high school sweetheart and wife, Jenna, reside in Robinson with their two boys, Evan and Eli.
Brenton expresses his excitement about being on council by stating, “We have the greatest community, the greatest schools, and the greatest residents. We have a small-town charm but are close to big city attractions. With the growth that's happening in the Waco area, decisions being made right now are more important than ever. I'm excited to be a part of our City's future.” Being new to the council, one of Brenton’s immediate goals are to learn as much as possible and gain an understanding of past decisions made by council, and the outcomes of those. He feels there is a lot of catching up to do when it comes to past decisions that were made. As for long-term goals, he would like to see the city continue to build and maintain infrastructure which he feels will encourage pride within the community, promote business growth, and eventually build tax revenue. Brenton provides an example of this with the park, “The City Park development over these last several years has been nothing but good for our community. It brings us together, gives us a place to host community events, and gives us a sense of pride. I'd like to see us expand this mindset to the rest of our town's infrastructure and start building streets and utilities that people are proud to have as well.”
