Parker County’s Commissioners Court filled the vacancy for Constable Precinct 1 Tuesday morning, selecting current Precinct 2 Deputy Constable Ray Jones in a special meeting of the court.
Jones was selected with a 3-2 vote after the court interviewed several candidates.
"I am honored to be appointed to fill the vacancy and I look forward to serving the residents of Precinct 1," Jones said. "I will take office as soon as I secure my bond and set up a time to be sworn in."
The appointment will serve through the end of this year. Parker County’s Republican Party Precinct 1 Executive Committee and Democrat Party Executive Committee will each meet in June to select candidates to be on the November ballot.
