Our Teams

Precinct One employs over 400+ team members to serve you. Under the direction of Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Brandon Dudley, the Chief of Staff, each team member plays an integral part in keeping the largest precinct in the County up and running. From the roads and community centers to the parks and offices, our teams are happy to serve!


The Office of the Chief of Staff serves as the liaison between the different Precinct One teams and Commissioner Rodney Ellis.
They ensure that teams are coordinating and collaborating with each other as well as with other Precincts and the County Judge’s Office.
