Charles "Butch" Faske, who has held the Precinct Two constable position since 1988, has announced he will run for a seventh term.
Faske was the first Republican elected to a county office since the days of Reconstruction. He has served as constable for 27 years.
Faske said he has carried out his duties "by providing an open door policy to all members of the community."
He said his office communicates with all area law enforcement agencies, the district and county attorneys, all justice of the peace courts and the commissioners court.
The primary duty of a constable is to serve all precepts and writs issued by district, county and justice of the peace courts.
"The support by the citizens of Washington County has been my driving force during my 27 years of service to Washington County and this state," Faske said."I am honored to serve as your constable and be able to provide professional, responsible and courteous service.
"I pledge a continued commitment of service and devotion to the office that I so proudly serve."
Faske and his wife Betsy have been married 44 years. They have two children: Bruce and Bonnie.
