Vote for Jesse Flores

I would like to take this opportunity to write a letter to the residents of Denton County on behalf of my late husband, Jim Dotson. As you are all aware, Jim passed away Dec. 19, 2012. He served as constable for four terms (16 years).

I know firsthand that Jim took great pride in serving the county. He made constable Precinct 1 the leading office and set an example for other precincts to follow.

Following Jim’s death, Jesse Flores was appointed constable by the Republican Party. Constable Flores has made great strides and united a good working office.

I look forward in the years to come to maintain a close relationship with Constable Jesse Flores and the constable Precinct 1 office. I feel Constable Flores follows closely in the footsteps of my late husband.

I am positive Jim would have supported him and approved of his leadership and respect for constable Precinct 1. With this being said, I am supporting Constable Flores in his upcoming election.

I am asking that you cast your vote in the March primary for Jesse Flores. Let’s keep the honesty and integrity that my late husband, Jim, was so dedicated to by electing Jesse Flores as your next constable.

Barbara Dotson,
