“On behalf of the entire County Judge’s Office, I want to thank Joe for his service to the people of Harris County. Joe was the first person I hired after my election, and I am incredibly grateful to him for the team he has helped build, for the relationships he has forged, and for his immense contributions to all of our progress to date. Over the past two-plus years, he has helped manage the toughest challenges our county has faced. From the ITC fire to numerous flood events, a historic winter storm disaster, and the ongoing pandemic, I and all Harris County residents have greatly benefited from his hard work, expertise, and commitment to our residents. I wish Joe all the best as he moves forward and hopes you will join me in thanking him for his tireless commitment to public service. I also want to congratulate Alex, Rafael, and Wallis on their new roles.”
