‼️Carter BloodCare has gone into a CRITICAL appeal for blood donations‼️

They need blood NOW! This shortage is not just local, it is a national issue with all blood centers facing the same obstacles.

While many organizations have resumed normal business, donor response has been slow and patient needs have increased. Patients in our community need our help to ensure a stable blood supply.

Please visit this link to locate a blood drive near you: Carter BloodCare - Donor Portal (greatpartners.org) to schedule an appointment at a donor center or blood drive near you this weekend.

After much deliberation with fellow leaders, friends, and, most importantly, my family, I have decided that now is the time to prepare for the next chapter of leadership for Tarrant County. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve my County and to do so alongside my fellow Commissioners. I am proud of all that we have accomplished together to make Tarrant County among the most innovative and collaborative counties in the nation. My wife and I raised our family in Tarrant County, I started my business in Tarrant County, and I will continue to serve Tarrant County with all that I have for the remainder of my term and into my next chapter.

When Tarrant County Commissioner JD Johnson was elected, he envisioned a law enforcement memorial for Tarrant County. Today, we unveiled the monument that honors our fallen heroes. As #NationalPoliceWeek comes to an end, we thank the men and women who serve bravely.

The inscription on the memorial reads, “The greatest love you can show is to give your life for others.” I encourage you to visit the memorial to respect and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
