I was employed for over 15 years with Shelby County Road and Bridge until Sept. 2022. I have been employed with Tri-State Vacuum for the past year. I currently hold a Class A CDL. I have continued to operate and haul heavy equipment as needed for the company.
December 11, 2023 - During the summer, I was appointed by the Commissioners’ Court to the office of Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4. I have over 26 years of experience in the justice system as a court clerk, Judicial Calendar Coordinator, Judicial Executive Assistant, and, most recently, as a Legal Assistant in the Shelby County District Attorney’s office. I am married to my husband, Cade, and we have a daughter, Logan, and a son-in-law, Hayden. We live in Bobo and enjoy taking care of our cattle, watching college football in the barn, riding horses, and hunting.
December 8, 2023 - I would like to announce my candidacy for Shelby County Sheriff. Many of you know me as I retired as your Sheriff in 2020. I quickly found out I am not ready for retirement. I’ve spent the last three years cooking up some pretty good steaks until about 2 months ago, when I was offered the position of Investigator for the District and County Attorney offices. I have given this a lot of thought and with so many calls encouraging me to run again, I have decided to do so.
November 27, 2023 - I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Shelby County Attorney. Throughout my campaign, I will strive to earn your confidence in me for this position in March 2024 and thereafter.
November 14, 2023 - About a year and a half ago now, several people who I respect came to me and asked me to accept the appointment to the office of Shelby County Attorney. As many of you know, I have been a civil litigator here for over 50 years. In those years there isn't much in a courtroom I haven't done or seen, with the exception of standing up and announcing, "Ready" for the State of Texas. I have now had that experience as well as the experience of attending commissioner's court every week. What I have found is that representing the people is extraordinarily rewarding.
November 14, 2023 - Here we are once again, on the cusp of a presidential campaign year, and I am announcing my candidacy for District Attorney, 123rd Judicial District. As I have said before many times, serving as your District Attorney has been near to a calling for me and it has been my great honor to serve you in that capacity.
November 3, 2023 - Hello, my name is Fern Thomas Jernigan Jr. It is my great pleasure to announce that after much thought and prayer along with encouragement from my community that I am seeking the office of Constable Precinct 3.
November 2, 2023 - I, Roy Cheatwood, want to announce that I would appreciate the voters of Precinct 3 Shelby County’s consideration to be re-elected for Constable. Since being elected into office, I believe that I have done what I promised. I'm grateful for the opportunity and support that y'all have shown since being first elected in 2016, and again in 2021. Elected by the people, to hold one of the highest office in Texas, is overwhelming. I believe the citizens want a Constable, not a police officer, Big Difference, I do however work my own cases most of the time.
