From the Chairman: A bad day for America Humanity

I was driving home from work on Tuesday, doing the thing I always do when I’m driving home from work – listening to National Public Radio on KUT. The lead story of course was what was happening at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The host informed me that the state-by-state roll call vote was taking place and we were just about 100 votes from the Republican Party having an official nominee.

I had taken a little bit of heat on my facebook page earlier in the day for having posted an article in support of the “Never Trump” contingent at the convention. As the comment stated, we would rather face The Donald than Ted Cruz. I guess I wasn’t quite looking at it like that.

Statement from Mike Renck, Democratic Candidate for Bastrop County Sheriff

As a retired federal law officer, and son and grandson of police officers, I was saddened and appalled by the recent senseless murders of police in Dallas. But I have been equally saddened and disturbed by the number of killings of citizens by police, such as those that occurred recently in Louisiana and Minnesota.

As a candidate for Sheriff of Bastrop County, I am committed to equal justice under the law for everyone. My motto is “Justice for All.” That means treating all people fairly, equally and with respect at all times. If elected, I will put that motto in large letters on every vehicle in the Sheriff’s Department as a constant reminder to deputies and citizens alike.

I can’t promise there will never be any shootings. But I can promise I will provide the best training possible to department personnel, not only for protecting themselves, but so that “Justice for All” is an integral part of their daily job. And I personally will work tirelessly to improve relations between minority communities in Bastrop County and the Sheriff’s Department.

We can change our country for the better. It will take all of us working together starting at the local level to do so. As a three-decade resident of Bastrop County, I am committed to doing my part locally, with your help in November.

Can We Please Move On??
