Commissioners Court Unanimously Appoints New Precinct 4 Constable
Commissioners Court unanimously voted to appoint Mark Herman as the new Precinct 4 Constable through 2016 following his nomination by Precinct 4 Commissioner R. Jack Cagle. A native of Harris County, Herman has more than 30 years of experience in the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, where he most recently served as assistant chief deputy overseeing patrol.
“Constable Herman has proven to be reliable and knowledgeable in his 30 years with the department,” said Commissioner Cagle. “I’m confident he will continue to show the same dedication in his new position, and I’m excited to see what he can achieve.”
Precinct 4 residents Stephanie Clark and Karen Brown are proving it’s never too late to learn
a new skill as they prepare to display their artwork at Big Stone Lodge’s first art exhibit Friday,
May 29 at 2 p.m.
“It’s amazing to see how far these students have progressed,” said Big Stone Lodge Director
Joanna Wilson. “Some are winning awards and finding their art is in demand. We’re hoping this
will give local artists an opportunity to find new audiences and help inspire others to enjoy all
the free classes we offer at Big Stone Lodge.”
