About Judge Bush

As the Ellis County Judge, I make decisions and take action to promote the best interests of the County. There is no room for special interests or self-promotion. I am not a politician; instead, I am a community member, a taxpayer and a citizen with a vested interest in the successful operation and management of Ellis County.

Leadership is about doing what is right, not what is popular or politically convenient.

I have always placed principles over politics and been guided by the philosophy that the ONLY acceptable agenda is to promote the best interests of Ellis County as a whole. 

We have accomplished so much, but there is still more to do. I would like to continue to work for you as Ellis County Judge; and, I humbly ask for your vote and your support in the March 6th Republican Primary.
