Harris County Deputies Organization Endorses Gov. Perry

The Harris County Deputies’ Organization, which represents nearly  two thousand law enforcement officers,  has endorsed Governor Rick Perry for re-election.

Governor Perry stood with members of the group during  a news conference at a downtown Houston hotel on Monday and called the endorsement, “significant and a big deal.”

 “The sacrifice and service the men and women of law enforcement provide our communities ensure Texas remains a great place to live and raise a family,” said Governor Perry.

“Bill White oversaw a sanctuary city and cooperated little with law enforcement.  We can’t allow this to happen to our state,” said  Bob Goerlitz, president of the organization.

Later  in the afternoon, during a news media availability, the former Houston Mayor  called the sanctuary city claim baseless.  “We didn’t make Houston a sanctuary city. We went after non citizens who committed crime. We arrested a lot of those folks,” said White.

White also noted that he has been endorsed by numerous law enforcement groups and sheriffs across the state, including Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.
