I have known and been friends with Matt Cawthon ever since our day's as Criminal Justice students at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. Matt's dedication, and drive to become a Texas Lawman were obvious then and were proven over and over during his many years with Texas DPS as a State Trooper and as a highly respected Texas Ranger as well as his additional time with the State of Texas and McClennan County. Personally, having been Blessed with two fine careers in the US Navy SEAL Teams and the Houston Police Department, I have had the good fortune to work alongside some of our Nation's finest warriors and States most exceptional law enforcement professionals. Matt is among the top tier of those I have served with. And his return to law enforcement exemplifies a calling, with fortitude, that few are willing to answer as our country struggles with good vs evil and right vs wrong. Matt is strong, honest, kind, respectful and extremely intelligent. He knows what right looks like and I believe he will continue to serve the residents of McClennan County PCT4 and the citizens of Texas with a Warrior sprit and a Servant's heart. I offer my most enthusiastic endorsement to Matt Cawthon for PCT4 Constable — Chris Nicola, Navel Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Chief (Retired)

I have known and worked closely with Matt since 1983. We both began our DPS careers with the Texas highway Patrol and closed them out with the Texas Rangers, almost 30 years later. Matt is well educated, well spoken, experienced and respected in all areas of law enforcement by those that know and have worked with him throughout the years. In today’s tough times, I am most certain his attitude and demeanor toward all members of the public is what is needed to calm the storm. I could not pick a better candidate for the position of McLennan County Constable, especially since I grew up there, namely West. My father and sister both retired from McLennan County after lengthy careers and I believe their support for Matt would be equal to mine. I ask the voters of Precinct 4 to strongly consider supporting Matt as I believe that he would be a perfect fit as your elected Constable.
