We have elected officials in public office who efficiently and energetically perform their public duties with commitment and dedication to their constituents. These public servants have integrity, work diligently and listen attentively to those who have problems they endeavor to remediate.

They labor at great personal sacrifice and often receive criticism when there must be tough decisions made that are in the best interests of the majority.

So much happens in the heart of our elected officials that precedes their judgments in community matters. I know Barb Wasinger will represent the residents of Ellis County well. I know her heart -- she deeply cares to serve, because she deeply cares about you.
