Hollis hoping to become next justice of the peace for Pct. 3

Anne Hollis is seeking the office of Parker County Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3.

She is on the Republican primary ballot in a four-candidate race along with Jerry Hataway, Dustin Vinson and Greg Martin. There is no Democratic challenger.

“My motto is, ‘Leadership means service,’” Hollis said. “That means I don’t sit around waiting or hoping for something to happen. As a leader, I make amazing things happen. There are no excuses or blame, I will deliver solutions, results and go above and beyond the call of duty.”

Hollis said she has lived in Parker County for more than 33 years and has been a part of the community in many different ways, including involvement as a Pythian Sister, PTA president, a Weatherford Soccer Association coach and referee, Theatre Off The Square executive board member, and member of the executive boards for Crime Stoppers and Freedom House. She also claims membership in Rotary Club, Noon Lions Club, Republican Women, Bush Legacy Republican Woman and Zonta.

“Being a part of the community is important, it gives the citizens a chance to know me and for me to get to know them,” Hollis stated. “I am a strong believer that God put me on this Earth to help; he has blessed me with a wonderful husband, great kids and an awesome career so that I can give back to those in their time of need.”

Hollis is a 20-year veteran with the Parker County Sheriff’s Office and with her husband, John, has been a longtime small business owner.

“We enjoy starting businesses, getting them going and eventually selling them, which gives other people the opportunity to own small businesses,” she said.

“Having been a small business owner, I have a unique insight into the challenges of owning and operating a small business. I am also business-orientated with management, supervising and budgeting skills. I understand how difficult it can be when you’re owed money and need it to make payroll or pay the electric, this is where I can help get cases into the court and help get results faster. Because leadership means service. It is important for everyone to be treated equal, fair and with respect.
