Constable resigns for school job

Nacogdoches County Constable for Precinct One has turned in his resignation.   Shane Johnson has accepted a position as Chief of Police for the Cushing Independent School District. It will be effective a little less than a month.

According to County Judge Joe English, if Johnson had resigned before last Friday both political parties would have named a candidate to run for his upcoming term. Instead, the county commission will need to appoint someone to serve the rest of the year. Another appointment will be made to serve out the 2009 two year term.
