“Ellis County is fortunate to have someone like Keith Roberts in the important position of facilities supervisor,” Ellis County Judge Carol Bush said. “Those of us who work with him know that he is incredibly conscientious and professional, not to mention one of the most pleasant people you’ll ever meet. Keith is responsible for, not only the difficult maintenance of a historic building, but the varied demands of the Courts Administration Building and outlying facilities. Each present unique challenges and he has met them all.
