Williamson County Government
United States of America

The purpose of this petition is to have appointed Sheriff Jim Wilson immediately removed from office and allow the citizens choice of Sheriff to take immediate command of the Sheriff's Department. The department is in turmoil. Frivolous spending, very low morale, intimidation of employees, irresponsible changes and the 2005 budget are the main concerns.

Jim Wilson must be removed immediately to allow the newly elected Sheriff the opportunity to create the budget he will administer, not one created by Jim Wilson who does not have the communities best interest at heart. Jim Wilson states he is a public servant. If he is a true public servant, he will serve his public's desires of him not being in office and the new Sheriff installed. Jim Wilson can not offer any valid justification for remaining in office until January. It is strictly personal for Jim and not for the good of Williamson County. Jim must be removed immediately in order to prevent his further destruction of the Sheriff's Department, leaving a complete mess for the elected Sheriff to clean up. Please join us in sending a strong message to our County Judge, Commissioners and Jim Wilson.

Jim Wilson, the appointed Sheriff of Williamson County was overwhelmingly defeated in the 2004 Primary election. Jim Wilson was defeated by Sheriff Ed Richards in 1996 by 65% of the vote. The citizens have spoken on two occasions that they do not have the confidence nor want Jim Wilson as Sheriff.
To the Williamson County Judge, Commissioners and Jim Wilson, we, the undersigned, petition that Jim Wilson is removed from the office of Sheriff immediately and install the elected Sheriff.
