Henry Trochesset was the only candidate in a contested race that failed to show up at the Courthouse debate tonight.

There must be a reason he's afraid of a debate. What else is he hiding other than the bankruptcy and the pending lawsuit against him?

There is speculation that the reason Gean Leonard decided to not seek re-election was to avoid being unseated by a Republican. That, and he was tired of Joe Max Taylor still trying to run the department.

Since Joe Max retired, the plan has been for Henry Trochessett to be sheriff but it was unknown exactly where the Democrat/Republican balance was within the county so Freddie Poor decided to be the political sacrificial lamb to save Henry from being defeated and Joe Max Taylor losing control of the department.

Realizing how close the election was in 2008, it was decided that Henry, a lifelong Democrat should prepare to run on the Republican ballot in 2012 because that is the direction the county has taken.

Part of that preparation was being promoted to Major and given multiple divisions of the department to command. However, this is all just a smoke screen. If the divisions that Henry has been placed in charge of didn't have qualified people supervising them, Henry would be like a deer caught in the headlights of a 18-wheeler.

The bulk of Henry's law enforcement career has been being Joe Max Taylor's valet. During the years, Henry was tutored by Joe Max and has learned his management style, which is draconian.

For the first time in over 40 years voters will be given the opportunity to do away with the Good Ole Boy system that has been in effect at the sheriff's department and elect a sheriff who will operate the department in a fair and equatable manner for both the employees and the general public.

Please join me in voting for John W. Pruitt, Jr. to be the next sheriff of Galveston County.

Just like his idol Joe Max Taylor...

With ties to reputed mafia family, Todd Fertitta, it's no surprise to see the donations coming in to Henry's campaign account.

The mafia? We all know joe max is tied into the fertita/ maceo organized crime syndicate. He has no concern for justice. I had no clue trochesset was tied in those guys as well. This is bad very bad.

Speaking of drugs, years ago, on another sheriff's watch, DEA agents caught a couple of deputies off loading bundles of marijuana from a shrimp boat that had been seized. The deputies were supposed to be guarding the boat. When questioned by the DEA agents as to what they were doing, the deputies said they were removing the marijuana for safekeeping.
Yeah right.... BUSTED!
If you ever wondered why the sheriff's position was so coveted it's because you have to be the sheriff to get to the real money.
Years ago, this same sheriff used to flip a lot of real estate, and, why not. If you are in charge of delinquent tax sales you have the inside information and can outbid anyone else.
That is, if the property was even listed.

When you have a choice of the lesser of two evils, Trochesset is the evil I don't think we need.

One thing is for sure, neither candidate knows anything about civil service. Besides, in qualifying counties, the sheriff has no say so whatsoever about the department having civil service. It is up to the county commissioners or the voters. However, with John Pruitt as sheriff, the playing field will be level. Promotions will be based on what a deputy knows and not who he knows and as long as people do their jobs, they will have a job.

I think all of y'all need to stop believing the hype about Henry. He is a good person with a good family. He is the best man for the job as sheriff point blank.

No I am not henrys nephew. Nor any relation to Henry. I just noticed this seemed to be a bash henry conversation so I want to defend him. An what does his nephew have to do with his campaign an him running for sheriff? If like you said he was busted at school then he is more than likely a minor an that makes it A) none of your business and B) just a teenager being a teenager. There is no preferential treatment going on. All this is, is people like you who have nothing better to do with your lives than slander a good mans name because you don't want him to become the next sheriff.

I highly doubt he was trying to market drugs to younger kids at school. And after all It was henrys nephew!!! Not his own child! Henry nor you can control everyone's actions family or not. Henry is a good man. His family are good honest hardworking people. He has my vote and I'm positive he WILL be the next sheriff of galveston county!!

Ok I don't know who you are since you keep changing your screenname. I'm sure your the same person making it look like there's a million Pruitt supporters out there. But apparently you know nothing about the Trochesset family. First off it's spelt Duggan! And Duggan is not a cop at the school! Second like I said he's a TEENAGER! And that has nothing to do with henrys campaign and career. As far as Pruitts kids go I know nothing about them except they have been caught stealing henrys signs an putting Pruitts signs up all over the county without permission from the landowners and also not having disclaimers on all the signs. Unlikeyou, I don't go trying to dig up dirt on someone's family simply to ruin his chance of getting elected. Henry has ran a clean campaign even with all the mudslinging and now harassment from certain Pruitt supporters both towards Henry an henrys supporters at various polling locations. Like I said I'm positive he will win and I'll be smiling and you frowning on November 7th!!

No it's not ok at all! But we all make mistakes, and im certain you do not know the whole story or situation on what went on with that your accusing him of dealing you do not know for certain. Kids get caught with drugs at school everyday. It's a sad reality. But again that has nothing to do with henry an how much of a great sheriff he will be come January when he's sworn in.

We all know u got the watch for free through bankruptcy.

This little circle jerk of 1-2 people changing their names and then re-posting to self support is just pathetic. Grow up people, this is disgusting.

Trying to discredit tax paying voters by saying its one person I guess is what I would do if I was a politician like trochesset with a lot of dirty laundry in the closet with family members dealing drugs at the school house.
