Last weekend, leadership and law enforcement all over Williamson County gathered to talk politics and peacemaker support at several popular annual events. Many of the speakers took the opportunity to reflect on the upcoming national election, and Texans were reminded that, more than anything, simply voting is critical.
First, in Austin, Sheriff-elect Robert Chody and many officers and supporters from Williamson County attended the second annual Police Lives Matter parade. Constable Chody organized the first march last September. Later, he and about 100 officers, families and supporters returned to Georgetown for an all-day “Back the Badge” barbecue.
Saturday night, several hundred guests and supporters enjoyed Texas-style fellowship at the 7th annual Schwertner Round-up featuring Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar as a keynote. The round-up has become a staple of Senator Charles Schwertner’s support. Businessman Jim Schwertner opened the evening with a wink; “I’d like to thank all the Deplorables for coming tonight.”
