67 New Texas Sheriffs for 2013

   There are 254 counties in Texas! January 2013 will begin the careers of 67 newly elected Texas Sheriffs.         
  Among the group are retired TxDPS, Game Wardens, and a retired Air Force Major General. Susan Pamerleau ran her race on an administrative level. Her claim to fame is the result of 32 years active service in the Air Force where she moved up the ranks with an impressive history of organization and management.

  Of the 67 newly elected sheriffs, 36 overcame incumbents in a huge turnover state wide. 
  Our best wishes to the 31 who did not seek re-election and are moving on to other adventures.
  The new crop of Texas Sheriffs begin a career that is legendary by nature as they take on the mantle of 'Guardian of their County'.
