   Dialogue With Sheriff Gonzales

Our old friend Sheriff Ed Gonzales met with a group of Asian Community leaders recently and talked about the issues facing all of us.

Ed is a native-born Houstonian. He is from a Mexican immigrant family. As a poor kid, his life is a success story for all of us. After he graduated from the University of Houston, he joined the Houston Police Department (HPD) and later became City of Houston councilman and later was elected to the position of Harris County Sheriff. Under his command, he led a police force of five thousand with a $550 million budget.

Ed urged the international and immigrant community to join his team in order to better serve our community.

Under his supervision Harris County also has opened a Women’s Center Medical Clinic and provided many other social services to local residents.

As a first generation of Latino descent, Sheriff Gonzales is our leader. His success story will pave the way for many youth in the new generation.

Hi Ed, we are so very proud of you.
