I consider my platform a true working philosophy based on my oath of office.


In my 41 years of public service in law enforcement, my goal has always been to enforce the law impartially and in a compassionate and professional manner. As the leader of the Nueces County Sheriff's Office, I direct, motivate, and insist that all employees of this agency adhere to these values.


If you look at the Oath of Office, carrying out the vocation of an elected official, especially an elected law enforcement official, is really rather simple. Preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and enforce ALL the laws of the United States and the State of Texas in an impartial manner.


I swore to exact the same Oath of Office in 1983. For the past 41 years, I have proudly honored that Oath, honored my faith, and honored my family in my daily service to this community. You can count on me to continue that service with the same fidelity. I promise to continue my service to this great community with integrity and fairness.
