Children's Jeanne Waller, Ira Billings announced his candidacy for sheriff of Hen- derson County this week. His statement follows: After having been asked by many concerned citizens of Henderson County to announce my candidacy for Sheriff of Henderson County, I wish at this time to solicit your support in my bid for this office. As a former Deputy Sheriff of Henderson County for nearly five years, I was known and respected for my honest enforcement of the law. I am a veteran of World War II, I enlisted in the United States Navy in 1943 and served in the Pacific Theater throughout the war. After 24 years of service in the Navy, I retired with the rank of Chief Petty Officer. After my retirement, I was employed by the Texas De- partment of Corrections as a custodial officer at the Cof- field Unit at Tennessee Col- ony. After I'A years, I was promoted to the rank of lieutenant. During the three years that I was employed by the Department of Correc- tions, I learned first-hand how and why crimes are commit- ted and how the criminal's mind works and about the criminal's attitude toward society. It was a school within itself. As a Deputy Sheriff, I needed more education in law enforcement and attended the East Texas Police Academy at Kilgore Junior College. I graduated as a Certified Peace Officer of Texas. As a Deputy Sheriff, I was charged with the responsibil- ity of maintaining law and order, arresting and taking custody of prisoners, and executing the mandates of the County and District Courts. In my work as a law enforce- ment officer, I have always tried to be fair and unbiased. I am a member of the Athens Masonic Lodge 165, and I am a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason, a mem- ber of the Scottish Rite Association of Henderson County. t am also a ,member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and the Hender- son County Farm Bureau. I am married to the former Addle Lee Frazier of Leon, Oklahoma. We have three children, Craig Edwin, age 9; Angela Kay, age 21; and Ralph Edward, 25, who is with the Department of Pub- lic Safety at Fairfield, Texas. I feel that I am well qualified for the office of Sheriff of Henderson County, and I will appreciate your vote and support. - Paid Political Ad Paid for by Ira Billings Here's where to install grab Mr. and Mrs. Joel Dunacusky Will ia ms-Du n ac usky Nuptials Solemnized In a candlelight double-ifing traditional bride and groom. ceremony, Nov. 14, 1975, The centerpiece was an Kathy Williams and Joel arrangement of yellow Dunacusky were married in gladiolas.
