I seldom post about work due to the fact I work for elected officials, in addition; making sure a law office has enough toner really is not that exciting.
I have had the privilege and honor to work for Tim Curry and Joe Shannon, Jr. as the Business Manager of the Criminal District Attorney for the past nine years. There have only been four District Attorneys in my life time and I got to work for two of them. To be part of the transition that brought Mr. Shannon as the District Attorney was a privilege. This transition had not happened in Tarrant County in over thirty-six years.
I have made a rare move within Tarrant County that the District Attorney’s Office believed merited a send off after nine years of service. Although more of a roast, it was quite flattering and humbling.
The above picture will be framed as part of my work history. From left to right, Bill Waybourn, Police Chief of Dalworthington Gardens; ADA Jack Strickland, started his career with T. Cullen Davis Trial; Judge Robb Catalano, a former ADA and one of my new bosses; Me; Joe Shannon, Jr., The District Attorney; and Melinda Westmoreland, an ADA, MC of the Roast and a cycling buddy.
Without the experienced I gained working at the District Attorney's Office, my new opportunity would not have been available. I will always be grateful.
