Political preferences

To the Editor: Citizens of Precinct 1, the race for Precinct 1 commissioner is rapidly coming to a close, with the early voting starting July 23-27 and the runoff election on July 31.

I have known Jason Grant for many years as a business owner and friend, and he has done a tremendous job on the Corsicana Police force as a detective, dedicated to working for the people of Corsicana solving crimes. His commitment to his job and the people of Corsicana, has earned him respect from the police department as well as all of the people who know him and associate themselves with him at church, school and all of the civic events that he has worked.

I'm excited that he has run a quality race for this office and support him 100 percent as he works to move our county forward as a commissioner, and to manage our county’s treasury in a conservative manner. Please join me in supporting Jason Grant for the commissioner for Precinct 1 in Navarro County.

Eddie Moore

To the Editor: I am grateful that we have two quality candidates running for the office of County Commissioner of Precinct 1.

My vote will be for Darrell Shelton — based on his qualifications, experience, maturity and character.

Darrell was the youngest of three sons showing he knows something about competing and standing his ground. His father served in public office as the Navarro County Sheriff. This gives Darrell some insights into the sacrifices a person and their family goes through to serve in public office. One of the qualifications mentioned in scripture for leadership in the church is found in I Timothy 3:4 and states that a man should rule his own household well before he assumes leadership. Darrell raised and educated a son and daughter that are now responsible, productive citizens and is a loving and devoted husband to his wife Cindy. This will serve him well in conducting the county’s business.

Darrell studied at Tarleton State University and has taught in public schools for 27 years — the last three as the head of the Science Department coordinating and planning curriculums, budgets, goals and activities. These experiences give Darrell insights into administration, working with people, rules, bureaucracy, and implementing and evaluating plans and programs.

His 35 years of experience in operating heavy equipment in road construction and maintenance gives him firsthand knowledge and experience to train and supervise precinct crews,  purchase and maintain equipment, and work with citizens to determine practical needs of construction and maintenance.

Darrell’s involvement through church and community activities show his commitment to serve his fellow man and to strive for the betterment of our community.

My vote will be for Darrell Shelton for County Commissioner of Precinct 1 and I encourage you to join me in supporting Darrell on July 31.
