To the Editor: I am writing to support Jason Grant for Republican candidate for Navarro County Commissioner Precinct 1.

Our family has known Jason for 36 years. We moved to this area after retiring from the military. Jason was a good friend to our late son, Johnnie Derden. He was always a happy, energetic young man. He, our son, and younger daughter did a lot of fishing and hunting in the Chatfield area. We have pictures of them holding big catfish they had pulled out of the creek on trot lines. Our children had never been able to do things like that because we were always moving, often living in other countries. Jason took them fishing and hunting, while at the same time keeping us all entertained with his wonderful sense of humor. Jason was also  there with us the night our son Johnnie passed away. He shared our shock, pain, and grief. Through it all, he has remained a very good and loyal friend to us. My husband and I know firsthand that Jason was raised with good, strong family values and a wonderful work ethic. He and his family are now living in the house that Jason and his father built.

Jason loves his home, his friends, and this community. His roots go deep in Navarro County. We have no doubt that Jason is capable of being our commissioner and that he already has many good plans to improve and preserve this area. This is a job that he will take very seriously and be very responsible as we have always known him to be.

Please join us and our daughters, Sandra Bailey and Linda Derden, in voting for Jason Grant, Navarro County Commissioner Precinct 1.

You go, Jason!


Johnnie and Bobbie Derden

To the Editor: I would like to recommend Darrell Shelton for Navarro County Commissioner Precinct 1.

I have known Darrell for over 25 years. I taught in the Corsicana ISD with Darrell and his wife, Cindy. In teaching their two children, you learn much about a family.

Not only does Darrell know how to work with the public, he has had many years of experience in the construction business.

He is honest, a hard worker and a devout Christian young man. I have no reservations in recommending him to the public office of Navarro County Commissioner, Precinct 1.
