Leroy Hanel Announces Candidacy

LIBERTY, February 18, 2014 - My name is Leroy Hanel and I am a Republican Party candidate for the office of Liberty County Commissioner Precinct 4.  I am a lifelong resident of Liberty County residing in Precinct 4.  I have been married to my wife, Maria, for 48 years.  We have a daughter and son-in law, Jamie & Seba Owens, and two grandchildren, Haylea and Mason. We are also lifelong members of St. Annes Catholic Church.

Growing up in Eastgate and working with my father in the farming industry he instilled my hardworking ethics in me at a very young age.  I was taught and still believe that any job, no matter how large or small, takes hard work and dedication.  These work ethics have followed me through my farming career and my employment with Liberty County.

During the years of 1986 to 2000 I was employed by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department.  During  my 14 year career with the department I spent one year as a jailer, one year as a bailiff, two years as a patrol officer, three years as a Sergeant, and seven years as Captain.  As Captain I was responsible for managing 76 employees, conducting monthly meetings, and community group meetings for safety and awareness along with managing the daily activities and responsibilities of the Sheriff’s office.
I was appointed to the position of Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator in January 2000.  During my employment I had to respond to all incidents pertaining to natural disasters, hazmat, wild fires, and terrorism.  I actively participated in several organizations and interacted with Federal, State, and Countyofficials.  Before retiring in 2005 I designed the Mobile Task Commander Unit which was used extensively during Hurricane Rita.

I have also worked in the construction and demolition field.  During this time I worked as a safety coordinator and heavy equipment operator. I was also responsible for making bids on future work sites.

As a resident of Precinct 4 I want to see positive changes come to our community. I will work diligently for the tax payers and strive to better our Precinct.  Please vote for me, Leroy Hanel, on March 4th. Your vote will be greatly appreciated.
