TYLER -- Today, Republican Chris Green will filed an application for a place on the Republican Party General Primary Ballot for Smith County Sheriff. Green recently retired as Game Warden and has served as a state peace officer for 20 years. A graduate of Dallas Baptist University, Green and his wife, Kelli, have two children, Braxton and Ellie.
“I’ve been a Game Warden for 20 years and have served 16 of those here in Smith County. I have over 4,800 hours in Texas law enforcement training and know the issues that we face in Smith County. I want to implement a fresh perspective, drawing on the relationships that I have cultivated in all aspects of the community. The people of this county have been very good to me, my family and especially my son, Braxton. I just want to serve in a bigger capacity, giving all I have to be the Sheriff that best represents Smith County.”
Green announced that he is “running on a platform of establishing and maintaining an administration that is ethical, transparent and one with integrity.” Green wants to run a department that is fiscally responsible with the budget and with officers who lead by example as professional, compassionate servants of the taxpayers.
Green’s qualifications for Sheriff are broad and diverse. His experiences in all phases of our justice system as an officer, an investigator and as an administrator have provided awareness and insight into what goes on in a large department and offers unique leadership for results-oriented operation in our Sheriff’s department.
Green’s campaign filed with Randy Grooms as Treasurer in September and has been actively campaigning for the past three months. His campaign headquarters is located at 4511 Troup Highway and has yard signs available at his office. Please call 903.561.9500 for information about the campaign.
