Part of tradition

Campbell — To the editor:

Let me tell you Judge Steve “Tex” Tittle have earned his designation as a REAL TEXAN, thus the nickname, “TEX”.  He deserves his nickname for many reasons.  Proving himself as a real Texan with qualities such as truthfulness, rugged individualism, humility, and fighting for what is right no matter what.  Not only has he reduced the huge backlog of cases in the 196th from a waiting period of 3 years when he took office, to now only 1 year, at a savings of thousands of county tax dollars, but also they said it couldn’t be done!  But Judge Steve Tittle did it.  Do you know how?  It was with his hard work, and with a driving commitment to his goals for the county and seeing through with his plan.  Qualities admired in a true Texan.  He is consistently saving the county money at every turn.

Being of high energy, again delivering top quality service as Judge of the 196th, he also attends the Senior Citizens Resource Center to pay his respects to our senior citizens.  And the Future Farmers of America and the Four H Club see Judge Steve Tittle encouraging them in all of their efforts.  How many other judges in Hunt County see to their constituents like Judge Steve Tittle?  None.  Our Judge Steve Tittle is out there working overtime with our youth in the true Texan Spirit.  We all know how important farmers and working with animas can benefit our youth.  Judge Steve Tittle gets it.  Judge Tittle knows that being a county District Judge and being a real Texan carries with it responsibilities.  He gets it and follows through with his commitment to his work and community.  He exemplifies that rugged individualism, standing up for what is right no matter what.  That quality was important when our State was battling for its independence and those qualities are important now.  That is our Judge Steve Tittle and we can be down right proud to have him working for us in the 196th.

Also being a Christian and believing in the Goodness of our Creator, he has taken a strong stand for the righteous just like the Texans of old.  It was this noble, God-fearing, rugged, go it alone attitude that gave us heroes such as Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Stephen Austin, William Travis and many more.  Those men fought even when the odds were against them in true Texan style.  It has been Judge Steve “Tex” Tittle’s mantra to do likewise, standing up for what is right.

Even with all of these accomplishments, he makes time to serve on the Hunt County Fair Board.  As so many of you attend and enjoy the Hunt County Fair, not only is it entertainment that the whole family can enjoy together without fear of embarrassment, it offers many opportunities for our young people to partake in wholesome activities.  This is a Texas Tradition in Hunt County and Judge Steve Tittle is part of it.  Vote to re-elect Judge Steve “Tex” Tittle.

Mr. and Mrs. CC and

Paul Parker/Adams

  • Kill the YMCA project

    In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
