NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Constables in the counties of Nacogdoches and Trinity have announced they will be running for sheriff.

Pct. 4 Constable Jason Bridges announced on his Facebook page Tuesday that he will run against Sheriff Thomas Kerss in the Nacogdoches County Republican primary. Bridges will not run for re-election of the constable position.

"I would like to take this time to reach out to each of you and announce my campaign for Sheriff of Nacogdoches County," Bridges stated. "As you may know, I am currently the Constable of Precinct Four and have reached my goals set for my Precinct. With your support and help I am prepared to make these changes countywide."

Kerss said in a telephone interview Tuesday that he will sign up to run for reelection.

"I think I've done a good job thus far," Kerss said. "We'll let the voters decide. I think there's a lot more good work I can do for the county."

Trinity County Precinct 1 Constable Woody Wallace stated in an invitation that he will officially announce on Friday his intention to run for sheriff. Wallace will run on the Republican ticket.

Ralph Montemayor is the current sheriff and is currently a Democrat. He could not be reached Tuesday for comment on his intentions.
