Conroe, October 21 – The Montgomery County Law Enforcement Association’s (MCLEA) President Paul Hahs and Vice President Brad Curtis announced the venerable law enforcement association’s endorsements for the November 6 General Election in an exclusive interview with The Golden Hammer yesterday afternoon. MCLEA is the oldest and largest law enforcement association in Montgomery County.
Hahs, the President, is a Sergeant over the Homicide and Violent Crimes Unit of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Curtis, the Vice President, is a Detective in the Homicide and Violent Crimes Unit. Both Hahs and Curtis have several other responsibilities as well in the Sheriff’s Office.
The “Mission” of MCLEA is “To unify the law enforcement employees of Montgomery County into a cohesive entity and utilize the skill, ability, and determination of the membership to benefit the community and the citizens it serves.”
Hahs explained to this newspaper, “MCLEA wholeheartedly endorses Mark Keough for Montgomery County Judge. We look forward to working with him for the betterment of Montgomery County as a whole.”
MCLEA informed the Keough campaign of the endorsement within the past few days.
Curtis spoke about Melanie Pryor Bush, the Republican Nominee for Montgomery County Treasurer. “Melanie Pryor Bush is a staunch fiscal conservative and conservative in general. She handled her position with the Conroe Independent School District well during her tenure as a Board member and as Board President. In fact, she’s run a successful financial-related business, so we have no doubt that she has the skill set that will benefit the citizens of Montgomery County during her service as County Treasurer,” Curtis said. “We think she’ll be a good County Treasurer.”
Curtis and MCLEA clearly found Melisa Miller, the Republican Nominee for Montgomery County District Clerk a very impressive lady. “She’s hard-charging and very driven. Melisa Miller will bring new conservative blood in that position that will improve the performance of the Montgomery County government in this very important office that handles the vast majority of the criminal, civil, and family court files on which our citizens depend. She’s a great choice for District Clerk,” Vice President Curtis explained.
Hahs discussed the Association’s endorsement of former Deputy Sheriff Matt Beasley, who is now the Chief of Staff in the Precinct 3 Commissioner’s Office. Beasley is the Republican Nominee for Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace for the position from which Justice Edie Connelly is retiring at the end of 2018. Hahs explained, “We’re happy to endorse Beasley. He’ll do a fantastic job. Matt has very good qualifications, as he previously worked in law enforcement. We’ve known him and worked with him for a long time. I have no doubt that Matt Beasley will do everything to make that busy Justice of the Peace Court very successful.”
Hahs and Curtis seemed very upbeat about the November 6 General Election and about the future of Montgomery County as a community. The MCLEA organization includes the largest number of the men and women who keep this community safe and allow it to remain a great place to work and play.
