As a long-time resident of Keene, and a former city councilman and mayor, I have admired the service and support Mike Powell has given to Keene and Johnson County.
I started using alcohol around the age of 16 and snorted my first line at 18. I thought I had found the answer to all my problems.
Learning on the job can be good; however, in the case of the chief law enforcement officer of a county, it can be dangerous.
Over the last several years, it has been a great privilege and honor to become close and personal friends with Adam King, candidate for Johnson County sheriff.
I have held a Texas Peace Officer's license for 40 years and served that entire time in Johnson County.
I've come to know Mike Powell through my partnership with the sheriff's office and our mutual service to the Johnson County Children's Advocacy Center.
As Johnson County commissioner for 16 years, I was both privileged and honored to have the opportunity to work with Adam King as commander of the STOP Task Force.
As Joshua mayor, I have had the opportunity to work with Chief Deputy Mike Powell on many occasions.
As a current law enforcement officer, as I have been for 24 years, I feel compelled to share my concerns regarding the very important upcoming run-off election for sheriff.
I am proud to support Mike Powell for Johnson County Sheriff.
