Taylor Co Commissioners vote
ABILENE, Texas -

The Taylor County Commissioners on Tuesday approved longtime Department of Public Safety trooper Bob Shea as the new Justice of the Peace.

Shea, who has served as a DPS trooper for 40 years, was selected from five applicants.

Shea will replace Justice of the Peace Mike Pueschel, who will step aside Monday. Although a date hasn’t been set as to when Shea will be sworn in, he can assume his role anytime after Peuschel steps down.
