Matt Carpenter has dedicated his life to defending his community and keeping the streets of North Texas safe. Now, he wants to be your Precinct 1 Collin County Constable.
A third-generation law enforcement officer, Matt has spent his life in service of others. Matt took his first job in law enforcement in 2003 and has since worked with the Plano Police Department, the Henderson Police Department, and the Collin County Constable’s office, now working as the Chief Deputy Constable in that office. Matt is also a board member of the Texas Justice of the Peace and Constable Association and the North Texas Justice of the Peace and Constable Association.
Matt is running for Constable in Collin County to continue his career of service in protection of the North Texas neighborhoods that are the backbone of this area. Matt believes that the taxpayers and residents of Collin County need their next Constable to be prepared to walk into his office and transform it into the professional environment that the local taxpayers of Collin County deserve, with a team of dedicated, experienced, and trained officers who will keep this community safe.
When he is not at work, Matt and his wife, Casey, love spending time with their three children and attending Melissa ISD games, supporting the local athletes who are pursuing education and careers in our community. The Carpenter family attends the First Baptist Church in Blue Ridge. Matt is a graduate of Kilgore College and Tyler Junior College.
Matt Carpenter has been a conservative and Republican throughout his entire life, always voting for the candidates who show the greatest understanding and knowledge of the constitutional foundations that our nation’s founding fathers outlined. Matt believes that the best government is the government that is the smallest and most conservative, believing that citizens and taxpayers know how to run their lives better than any bureaucrat, elected or unelected.
In 2021, Matt Carpenter was named the Texas Deputy of the Year by the Justice of the Peace and Constables Association, recognizing him for his service and work in keeping the streets of Collin County safe. Deputies from all 254 counties in Texas were considered for this award, with the members of the JPCA deciding that Matt was worthy of this prestigious accolade.
Matt’s recognition by the JPCA and the two state representatives who attended the ceremony showed incredible recognition by Matt’s colleagues to his life of service and career of keeping people safe.
As the 2021 Texas Deputy of the Year, Matt has continued his work to keep the citizens of Collin County safe every day, always remembering that serving others and defending our community are the reasons why he became a law enforcement officer in the first place. Matt hopes to continue award-winning work over the next four years as the next precinct 1 constable for Collin County.
