To the Editor,

The Ellis County Sheriff’s Officer’s Association is proud to endorse you, Charles “Chuck” Edge, for the office of Ellis County Sheriff in the 2018 election. You were appointed to this position by the Commissioner’s Court in April of 2017, during a period of apprehension and insecurity within this agency. Your leadership has been a sure and steady hand at the wheel, and you have exhibited a true concern for the people in this agency. As a former field commander of the Harris County Organized Crime and Narcotic’s Task Force, a graduate of the 222nd session of the FBI National Academy and the Leadership and Command College of the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas, and the former Chief of Police in both the Palestine Police Department and the Waxahachie Police Department, it is an honor and a privilege to have your vast experience, knowledge, and proven leadership at the helm, leading this agency into a new and better era.


Joshua Atilano, President, Ellis County Sheriff's Association
