COMMISSIONER RADACK ON LEADERSHIP: Steve Radack (i) - Republican - Speaks to Aubrey R. Taylor about the importance of electing good leadership during times of crisis

COMMISSIONER STEVE RADACK: "Good leadership is always vital during a crisis. But we must put the word “crisis” in perspective. Harris County consists of nearly 4 million residents. It is safe to say that every second there is someone experiencing a crisis in their life. It could be one of the thousands of children abused annually, or a senior citizen struggling to pay the light bill while facing a mountain of medical expenses. It could be one of the hundreds of thousands of people treated at the Harris County Hospital District each year. Leaders come in all shapes and forms. As a leader, my best work is to make sure other leaders in the community have the tools they need to help all these people 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. The people of Harris County are dynamic and challenges are always present. Leaders, like those on Harris County Commissioners Court, find a way to make sure the community has the tools to deal with whatever confronts the people we serve." AUBREY R. TAYLOR: Steve Radack was the Republican incumbent running for re-election as Harris County Commissioner for Precinct #3 back in the 2008 Presidential Election when he provided me with this statement.
