After much prayer and thought, I have decided to not see reelection for the position of Hunt County Sheriff. On Wednesday I met with approximately 150 employees of my Hunt County Sheriff’s Office family and announced the news to them. I have been honored to serve the citizens of Hunt County for 36 years. I served as Constable Pct. 1 for 24 years and for the last 12 years I have served as Hunt County Sheriff.
I will officially retire on December 31, 2020 as my third term as Sheriff expires. I have worked with some of the finest folks that I have ever been in contact with. Their dedication to the citizens of Hunt County and to the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office is beyond belief. Most of them could go somewhere else and make more money, but their loyalty and wanting to see Hunt County a better place keeps them here. To the employees of the Sheriff’s Office, I cannot thank you enough. You truly are dedicated, respected, and experienced.
We have accomplished a lot over the twelve years since I took office. Even as I write this, we are preparing another knock down of a local drug dealer. Our war on drugs continue and it will as long as I am Sheriff of Hunt County. We were successful in the first few months of my administration in shutting down the local game rooms. I am proud of the accomplishments that were made during my term as Sheriff. Once again, I must give the credit to the men and women that work for the Sheriff’s Office.
The decision to retire was a difficult one to make. The needs of my family were foremost in my decision to retire. It has been a good run and I am looking forward to what God has for me in the future.
I want to thank the citizens of Hunt County for allowing me to serve them first as Constable and as your Sheriff. It has truly been an honor.
Hunt County Sheriff
Not all missing people situations are criminal. Not all people who go missing want to be found. Why can’t you leave his family out of your comments?
God Bless you, Sheriff. You’ve done a remarkable service to our great county.
