In addition to his experience on the commissioners court, Pechacek said his time spent in law enforcement also makes him a well-rounded candidate.
He got a license to be a peace officer from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and Officer Standards in Education (TCLOSE) and also worked as a reserve for the Mineral Wells Police Department. Pechacek said he believes this knowledge of the law only makes him a stronger candidate.
“I have a real good background in law enforcement,” he said. “The county judge seat does require knowledge of some law as well as budgets and the courthouse.”
When asked about his plans if he were elected or if there was any need for change in Palo Pinto, Pechacek said he has nothing specific in mind.
“First I need to get elected and then I’ll get in there and see where we’re at and get going,” he said. “I’m sure the commissioners court have got everything under control.
“I haven’t got ay problems with the courthouse at all. [Judge Nicklas] is a very good person. I just want to get back in there and maybe I can make it a better place. If I get elected and there are problems, I’ll find them and address them with the court.”
