Carter Announces Re-Election for Constable

COLLINSVILLE, Ala. — Incumbent Constable Jimmy Carter has announced his intentions to run for re-election in District 3. He is a candidate in the Republican primary.

Carter is a former Mayor of Collinsville and has been a local business owner. 

"Other than the Sheriff, [a] Constable is the only peace officer elected by the people in the State of Alabama," said Carter. "As your Constable, I have been working with the Sheriff's Office serving subpoenas, summons and various other court papers. This is being done at no cost to the citizens of DeKalb County. There is no pay for being a Constable." 

Carter stated his understanding of the need of law enforcement in this day and time, which he proves by "working with not only our Sheriff, but our local police and rescue squad."

"I am your Constable because of a desire to serve my community," Carter concluded.

The Republican primary in the State of Alabama will be held on Tuesday, March 3. Carter is challenged by Michael Twilley in the primary. No Democratic candidates qualified to run for the seat.
