The Golden Hammer Staff Reports
Conroe, December 16 – Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson is the Fifth Most Powerful of the Power Top Ten, the ten most powerful people in Montgomery County. Sheriff Rand Henderson has revealed wonderful talent and independent judgment as a law enforcement officer in this community.
Henderson has done a lot of good, but the singular triumph, which he accomplished most strikingly, occurred when he refused to enforce Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough’s illegal mandate to lock Montgomery County citizens in their houses on March 27, 2020, in response to Keough’s panic over the China Virus pandemic.
The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper, continues the tradition of listing the Power Top Ten, the ten most powerful people in Montgomery County. The Power Top Ten doesn’t commemorate the ten best people in Montgomery County necessarily, but the most powerful people who are actually able to accomplish political or policy goals. In other words, she or he can get things done in Montgomery County. This year is the fifth that The Golden Hammer is publishing this list. In 2016, the former Publisher of this newspaper published the list on social media before this newspaper began.
So far, The Golden Hammer has named five other people in the Power Top Ten:
#6 Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon
#7 Conroe ISD Superintendent Curtis Null
#8 County Judge Chief of Staff Jason Millsaps
#9 Conservative activist Ginger Russell.
#10 Conroe Mayor Jody Czajkoski, Conroe First Lady Nicole Czajkoski, and Quadvest President Simon Sequeira
#5: Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson
Last year Henderson was #6. Those improvements are far from serendipitous. They reflect the maturity of leadership Sheriff Henderson has brought to his job as Sheriff, which he began on January 1, 2017.
Sheriff Henderson has shown great leadership: in his dealings with the Commissioners Court. The Montgomery County Commissioners Court often seems like five petulant primates all demanding the same banana.
Nevertheless, Sheriff Henderson has shown a maturity towards law enforcement matters which the members of the Commissioners Court would rather devolve into politics and self-congratulation. He’s made clear that he has read, understands, and believes political philosophy. Authors such as Max Weber and John Locke did not waste their pens on Rand Henderson. It appears that the Sheriff has come to understand over the past two years the difference between positive chaos (such as President Donald Trump or a methodology of this newspaper) and anarchy, which is what existed at the commencement of Locke’s “state of nature.”
Sheriff Henderson has shown much more concern for individual civil rights and the meaning of the Constitution of Texas and of the United States than the precipitators on the Commissioners Court.
Rand Henderson is well on his way to becoming one of the great Sheriff’s in Montgomery County’s history. He’s using his mind and applying his own political skills to the complexity of managing just under three thousand people.
Sheriff Rand Henderson is truly getting the job done.
