“I am a lifelong resident of Brazoria County and and graduated from Danbury High School. Upon graduation, I entered in the United States Navy where I received a formal education in aircraft mechanics and specialized in working on F/A-18 Hornets. I was assigned to a squadron that deployed to the Middle East and Persian Gulf,” Brawner saids. “I returned home from the military in 1995 with a renewed commitment in protecting the freedom we hold dear and that is why I choose to pursue a career in law enforcement and began working for the Brazoria County Sheriff’s office in 1999. I have enjoyed the experience of working narcotics as well as the great opportunity to work with other law enforcement agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration and Pearland Police Department. Together, we have been able to make a significant impact on slowing the flow and arresting narcotic traffickers that are utilizing Brazoria County as a place to store, and sell their poison to our families and children.”
He has served in numerous divisions in Brazoria County including jail, patrol, crime scene investigations, swat, and narcotics and was promoted to Sergeant in 2009.

Brawner states, “This is an important race for our community and you have a rare opportunity to elect a person with both verifiable Law Enforcement and Leadership experience. You have to choose wisely when you are electing a candidate who will be in your neighborhood and on your streets and that is why I take this campaign so seriously and why I welcome your support and am asking for your vote.”
