Constable asks for your support

Posted: Saturday, August 16, 2014 11:59 pm

As you may have read in Monday’s edition of The Galveston County Daily News, my office is in danger of losing one full-time deputy and two $100-a-month deputies.

This move is in addition to the planned reduction of the number of constables from eight to four. The rationale for the reduction of my staff is that constables are charged under the Local Government Code primarily with serving civil process and warrants along with providing bailiffs to the justice court and that we should not duplicate the law enforcement efforts of other agencies.
