Harris County Judge Ed Emmett has been a strong leader in the face of difficult challenges. As county judge, he has organized the county’s response to two historic disasters – Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey.

As Ike made landfall, Emmett famously told county residents to “hunker down.” As rain waters began to swell from Harvey, Emmett called on boat owners around the region to come to the rescue.

Ed Emmett is the calm and steady leader we need in times of challenge. He has
earned our trust.
