Henry Curry is announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Ellis County Constable Precinct 3.

I am Henry Curry and I am thankful to God for allowing me to be a candidate for Ellis County Constable Precinct 3. I am currently employed as a deputy constable for Constable Roy Williams, Jr. at Dallas County Precinct 4. I am married to Lisa Patrick Curry and we have one son and two daughters. My family and I are our proud residents of Waxahachie. My wife’s paternal family was born, raised and educated in Waxahachie and has deep roots in the community. Her aunt, Charles Etta Patrick Willis,now retired, was an educator for 41 years in the Waxahachie Independent School District having taught at Oak Lawn, Marvin, Ferris Ward and Dunaway Elementary Schools. Her great-aunt , Allene Thomas, is the founder and former owner of Community Funeral Home.

I have over 20 years of law enforcement experience which includes more than 10 years of service with the Dallas County Constable’s office; 5 years with Dallas County Security/Marshal’s office; 5 years with the Dallas County Juvenile Department and 1 year with Mountain View College Police Department. I have the knowledge and training to lead the constable’s office and to be a voice for the community in law enforcement. Further, I am the only candidate with experience in all facets of the Constable’s office which are: civil process, executions/writs (sequestrations, attachments, garnishments, etc.) warrant apprehension including mental illness, traffic enforcement, and court bailiff. I also hold an Advanced Peace Officer and Mental Illness certification.

If elected as Constable, I will ensure excellence in the execution of both civil and criminal processes issued by local courts and other jurisdictions in a fair and impartial manner. The Constable’s office will work in partnership with the community to promote safety and provide quality and efficient service. I will work diligently with community leaders, assist local law enforcement agencies, and work with area schools and churches to enhance the quality of life in our community. My goal will be to make certain that the Constable’s office is a true community-based police agency.
