Vision, Growth, Mission

With a vision for the future, I am prepared.  I know I can help the Constable's Office of Johnson County Precinct 1 anticipate and accept the coming growth and changes.  My work history, training, and experience prepared me to be the Constable.  Now working in a larger county with double the volume of Civil Case Work and demand has readied me for the task ahead as Johnson County grows.  This is a clear benefit to the citizens of Precinct 1.  We deserve a professionally ran Constable's Office with modern-day law enforcement policies, practices, and procedures.  I believe I provide a winning combination for our citizens.  I will bring experience, education, balance, and dedication to Precinct 1.

What makes me qualified for this position?
