To the Editor

Regarding letter from Shelia Thompson in the Waxahachie Daily Light dated 4/28/17, I would like to give my opinion. Fact is the Ellis County Judge has not fired any personnel from the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department. While you would think everyone would know that only the Ellis County Sheriff hires and fires employees of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department evidently there are some that either do not know or want to continue politicizing the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department. The record will show the vote was unanimous to appoint Sheriff Edge with all Ellis County Commissioners (Butler-Grayson-Perry-Stinson) and Ellis County Judge (Bush) voting Yes. If you’re looking for a cause, it is my opinion, you look no further than the Ellis County Sheriff who vacated his elected office with almost a full term remaining. Again, if you do not know, the Ellis County Sheriff fire employees of the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department not the Ellis County Judge. Get out of the blame game and deal in the truth based on the facts if you are one that continues to politicize the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department. Isn’t it so easy to accuse someone of something even when it is not true.
