Hunt County Gets Temporary Judge

Hunt County has a new temporary county judge. The Commissioner’s Court this week named Precinct 1 Commissioner Eric Evans as a fill-in for the late John Horne. The Herald Banner reports that Evans will serve as county judge until the commissioners decide between 11 candidates seeking to be appointed.

A special session has been scheduled for Friday to consider the candidates. The commissioners could decide as early as January 22nd. The appointee will serve in the post until the November 2020 election.
