Lufkin, TX — Angelina County law enforcement candidates who won election in November decided to get the earliest start possible on their terms by taking the oath of office at the stroke of midnight Tuesday.
A standing room only crowd of family, friends and supporters at the Angelina County Law Enforcement Center in Lufkin braved the rainy weather to witness a new sheriff and two new constables start initial terms and two incumbent constables take the oath for new terms.
