CANDIDATE WITH A STRONG BELIEF IN
INTEGRITY, ETHICS, HONESTY, AND COMMITMENT TO SERVE
My name is Christopher “Chris” Gregory, and I am deeply honored to be the new Justice of the Peace – Precinct 4 –Tarrant County. I took the official oath of office on October 16, 2018.
I am a lifetime resident of this wonderful community and of Precinct 4. I attended and graduated from Castleberry High School in 1993. While going to high school I started working in retail, where I started out as a sacker for Albertsons. I continued my career with Albertsons where I worked until 2004 as a general merchandise Manager.
In 2004 while working a full-time job at Albertsons, I received God’s calling to serve. Upon answering His calling, I was accepted into the basic police academy at TCC and earned my basic peace officer’s license. Wanting to serve in the community that I love, I applied with and was hired as a patrol officer with the Lake Worth Police Department.
For the past 14 plus years, I have been honored to serve this community and its citizens as a public servant in law enforcement. On September 27, 2018, I made my Last Call and officially retired from the Lake Worth Police Department.
While working at the Lake Worth Police Department I received several commendations. In 2007, I was promoted to the rank of Patrol Sergeant, supervising the Night Patrol Shift. I was fortunate to work with some of the best professional officers any sergeant could ask for. Later in 2009, I submitted and tested for a promotional examination for Detective. After being selected as the top candidate, I was promoted to the rank of Detective, where I specialized in fraud. After nine years as a detective, I was promoted to the rank of Detective Sergeant. In early 2017, I submitted and embarked on a campaign to be the next Justice of the Peace in Precinct 4.
I am fortunate to be married to the love of my life and best friend Ashley. I am also the father of two, a teenage son Triston and a one-year-old daughter Skylar, with my wife and I expecting a third child later this year. God has blessed me in so many ways, as well as, giving me life lessons throughout my life. He, along with my parents and my family are the foundation in my life that keep me grounded and humbled.
It is my belief that in order for change to occur, citizens must make their voices heard. The best way to be heard is for every individual to cast their VOTE and many did! I am honored to of gained your votes and support, I will be a judge that follows the law. My decisions will be based solely on the Rules of Evidence and Procedures established by the great State of Texas. It is also my belief that justice does fully exist if a person sitting in this seat is not motivated by their own agenda and they follow the laws and procedures that have been established for many years in our state.
Thank you for taking the time to vote and lend your voice and support for myself in a role that I consider to be very important in public service and in our community.
Because of you, the citizens and the community of Precinct 4, together we will bring ethics, integrity, honesty, and commitment to serve back to the citizens and the office, and bring the court back to the people it was put into place to serve.
