Endorsement: Vote for John Benedetto for County Constable Pct. 1
ROCKWALL – The decision for whom to vote in the May 29 Republican Primary Election for Rockwall County Constable Precinct 1 is an easy one. Vote for 2010 Police Academy graduate and long-time County businessman John Benedetto.
Early voting is on now through May 25. Find your voting location on the Rockwall County Elections Department website.
From a family of law enforcement officers, Benedetto is well-known and very highly regarded by many area residents after raising his family, plus owning and operating several businesses, here for the past 29 years.
He’s run air conditioning and home-building companies – with homes in Buffalo Creek and The Shores. He has helped construct homes locally for Habitat For Humanity. He built and operated one of the largest child care facilities in North Texas with enrollment of 300-plus children, Stonebrook Learning Center in Royse City, which his oldest son now operates.
He was a member of the McClendon-Chisholm Planning and Zoning Board, and president for four consecutive years of the Rockwall High School Band Boosters.
He is also a Member of the Rockwall County Republican Men’s Club, Royse City Chamber of Commerce, Royse City Early Bird Rotary Club and has served on the Board of Directors for the Rockwall First United Methodist Church, where he and his wife, Pam, attend.
They currently own Rockwall Healthy Solutions Weight Loss, a very successful business that helps area residents to become much more healthy.
Suffice to say, the Benedettos have developed deep roots in the community, a reputation for honesty and integrity, plus generosity – having helped many people along way.
His continuous record of service to the community – through business, church, school and charities – provides ample proof that Benedetto is the best choice to serve the residents of Rockwall County as their Constable in Pct. 1.
In addition, after graduating with honors from the Police Academy in 2010, he passed his Texas Peace Officer exam and is current with all laws, preparing him well for service as a Constable.
His opponent, Vince Zubras, has more experience with the courts and in law enforcement, but much of that was as a volunteer in Denton and Dallas Counties, not Rockwall. Of concern is whether he actually lives in Rockwall County, which he claims but multiple sources dispute. Legally, he must have lived in Rockwall County for six months or more to qualify to run for office here.
Even if he has lived at his daughter’s home in Rockwall since 2010 as he says, he clearly does not have the track record of service to the community that Benedetto has and he will no doubt continue. Zubras’ commitment to Rockwall County clearly comes no where close to that of Benedetto’s.
Bottom line is that it is easy to find people who are well-acquainted and friends with Benedetto. They speak very highly of him.
Few really know who Zubras is, based upon our research.
