  1. Gordon Ellis is the son of my best friend. I know that his mother was so proud of him , and only wish that she were here to witness this great honor , along with him winning the election for Brown County Sheriff. Where I don’t know him personally , I have heard many great things about him and his family. Proud to have him as Sheriff protecting where I reside.

  2. Gordon is very detacated to his country. I am so very thankful for his service. Also to his family for the many sacrifices they endured while he was away protecting our freedoms.
