Bill Orton will:

  • Lead the Matagorda County Sheriff’s Office into a new era, where deputies are properly equipped and trained to better safeguard families.
  • Fight the war on drugs in our neighborhoods and prioritize protection of the border.
  • Forge alliances with first responders, other law enforcement agencies, state, local and federal leaders and community members, including volunteer firefighters.
  • Follow and expand practices he put into place as Constable to help local schools be a safer place for students, parents and teachers during the school day and during activities and athletic events.
  • Operate a streamlined and fiscally responsible Sheriff’s Office that maximizes the use of taxpayer dollars and partnerships needed to help equip deputies.
