LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- Lamar County has a new Precinct 1 Constable after a majority vote by county commissioners.
Commissioners selected Travis Rhodes, who is currently a Patrol Captain at the Lamar County Sheriff's Office.
Rhodes will take over for Madeline Chance who decided to retire a year and a half into her second four year term. He will serve as Constable until voters pick a full time replacement in the November election.
Rhodes says he intends on running for the position in November.
