Wilson County Pct. 3 Constable George Scoggins

Wilson County Pct. 3 Constable George Scoggins has announced he will not pursue another term in office.

In an email to the La Vernia News Sept. 4, Scoggins cited health considerations as a primary factor in his decision. Both he and his wife, Brenda, have faced health issues in recent years.

“After a lot of consideration about Brenda and her medical needs and the need for more income to meet the expenses due to those needs and the time involved in side jobs to meet those demands, I will not be running for re-election as planned,” Scoggins said.

He added that this was not a sudden decision, and that he will serve the remainder of his current term. He and Brenda are thankful for the community support during their illnesses, he said.

“You have been by me from the beginning and stepped up even more when Brenda came down with her first round of cancer,” Scoggins wrote. “You were there for her second and now her third.”

They have appreciated the help from community members and friends, who have helped get Brenda to her appointments, with everyday needs, and supporting them through fund-raisers to help with medical bills.

“The constable’s office in Wilson County has come a long way since you first elected me and I took office on Aug. 14, 2006. That would not have happened with out all your help.”

In the upcoming primary election on the first Tuesday of March 2016, I will be casting my vote for whichever [candidate] will be willing to put the voters first and not in the back seat.”

He encourages voters to seek a candidate who will work well with other local agencies, who is personable, objective, and puts the needs of the community first.

In closing, Scoggins said, “Thank you all again for all your trust, faith, and overwhelming support for all these years. God bless you all.”
