Thank you for your interest in my re-election campaign for Collin County Sheriff. I am a veteran peace officer and former prosecutor who is asking the citizens of Collin County for the privilege of serving a second term as their Sheriff.
In August 1978, two days after my nineteenth birthday, I started my law enforcement career when I was commissioned as a police officer for the City of Harker Heights, Texas. One week later, I was standing post as an Honor Guard over the casket of a friend and fellow officer, who was murdered while on-duty by a fugitive child rapist. My friend’s death had a profound impact on me, and as I stood beside his body, I swore that I would pursue a life of service in the law, protecting the innocent and pursuing the predators who would prey upon and harm them.
We are fortunate to live in the best county in the State of Texas, and with your support I intend to keep it that way. I thank God for affording me the opportunity to serve in a variety of different roles within our criminal justice system, giving me a well rounded perspective; one that I believe uniquely qualifies me to serve as your Sheriff.
I hope that you will take some time to examine my qualifications and experience. I count it a tremendous privilege to have been elected the Sheriff of Collin County. It continues to be one of the proudest achievements of my lifetime, and a role I take incredibly seriously. The Republican primary election will be held in March of 2020, and I am asking for your support and your vote.
