Michael G. Maness ran for Pct. 2 J.P. in 2014, won the primary, lost the runoff by a hair to his long-time friend, Greg Dawson (R.I.P.). I desire to serve as J.P. much as I have served in many clubs, orgs, and activities over the last 25 years in Tyler County.
I have served all my life. I promise a good, honest, caring work ethic.

Deciding to run for Justice of the Peace was based upon wanting to make a difference in how people's voices are heard and needs are met. Maness' love for the community is what drives him and his background is what makes him a good choice. Michael G. Maness looks at serving the public less as a career and more as a precious, trusted honor.
