Over the past few years, I have been eager to implement the ideas Shared by many of you in a timely and ethical fashion. I will be the first to admit I am not a "pohtician" nor do I possess any ulterior motives for seeking the position of Sheriff. I have a firm belief that we the people deserve a new direction, a positive direction built upon public trust and unity. As the Sheriff of Hidalgo County, I will not begin to mislead you the public with empty promises of different or magical changes to the current regime's operational agendas. My intentions are to hold the public's health, safety, and welfare in the highest of regard and incorporate a strong working relationship with other agencies to more effectively serve the people of Hidalgo County. I will also promote goal-orientated initiatives for my staff, revise policies to promote an effective and accountable working environment and, most importantly, replace the missing link dividing the community and the Sheriff's office. Help lead our County in a new direction and VOTE Warren D. Walter as your Republican candidate for Hidalgo County Sheriff. I sympathize with many of you and understand that our tax dollars need to go to a more genuine cause other than civil or criminal litigation. My responsibility and promise I make to each and every one of you is to reaffirm my oath daily to uphold and enforce thl laws of our great state with integrity "wlllY0ur Vote of SupportbeondeeplYJune 3,appreciated2014 a r 00ta., c.o.,, tl}, 00alte e.,,,
