The filing date for a place on the ballot for County offices is next week, and I will be seeking election to remain your Sheriff. That being said, this is the last article I will be writing for a while. I don't think it appropriate for me to have this forum while there is a campaign going on. Also, I don't want it to appear that the Waxahachie Daily Light is endorsing me for Sheriff. I obviously will be honored if they do, but that is for another day.

The Daily Light has been gracious in letting us have this space where we can get information out to the citizens and visitors of Ellis County; this will continue. Different members of the Ellis County Sheriff's Office will continue to write this column and keep the readers informed about things at your Sheriff's Office.
