LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - When Ricky Conner returned to the Angelina County Emergency Management Office, he knew he was coming back home.
Conner previously worked as the coordinator from 2008-2011. Before that, he was with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office. After his brief stint in the emergency office he went on to become the Diboll Police Chief.
"It feels good," Conner said. "I have hit the ground running and I know what I am doing. I was there for three years so I am just ready to get back to work and get the county more prepared."
Conner took the job after the previous coordinator Don Morris retired late last year.
