CHEROKEE COUNTY — James Morris has formally announced his bid for election to the office of Justice of the Peace, Pct. 3 Cherokee County.

Having previously served in that office for 2 elected terms from 2003-2010, I seek the voters’ support as I desire to serve the citizens of Pct. 3 again.

The voters of Pct. 3 are well aware of the true Conservative nature and desire of public service that I bring to them. With compassion and a stalwart sense of righteousness in justice, I was able to be the judge that the people expected.

You trusted me for 8 years as your former Justice of the Peace, and I am again asking for your vote to represent you again. You deserve a judge that listens to you, cares about you, and is available for you. You deserve a true conservative that is devoted to the rule of Law, not passion, personal opinion, or privileged acquaintance. I am that proven Judge that Pct. 3 needs again. Just continue to remember, JM for JP.

 In addition to having served the public of Pct. 3 as Justice of the Peace for 2 elected terms, James Morris has served as Pastor of New Hope Baptist Church for 19 years, has many years of non-government work under his belt, and owns High Road Enterprises, teaching Driving Safety classes for several years. He is the first Republican in the history of Cherokee County to have been sworn into office. He served as President of the Cherokee County Republican Club for 2 terms, and has been very influential in working to help elect true Conservatives into various offices of the State of Texas, and Cherokee County. He is married to Karen Morris of Weatherford, the incoming Chairperson of the Cherokee County Republican Party, who also is a partner in ownership of LKR Hair Design in Tyler.

 Please vote in the Republican Primary on March 4. This race will be decided at that time.
