John Sharp is a true down-to-earth public servant

By Willis Webb


John Sharp is one of those people to whom you take an instant liking. He is down-to-earth but brilliant and is truly devoted to public service. Two opportunities to view the Texas A&M University System chancellor revealed a man who seems to always be relaxed and at ease talking to anyone. My first introduction to Sharp came in Lockhart in 1982. An energetic state representative, Sharp was running for the Texas Senate and, of course, did so successfully. That intro made me a Sharp fan and I have remained an admirer of the man for his down-to-earth manner and his every-man’s-friend appearance. Pat Patton of Lockhart introduced me to Sharp. Patton was a longtime Democrat and served the party on county and state committees and was active in a number of political campaigns.
