Five Angelina County elected officials switched parties Friday, two months after Republicans won every contested race on the county’s November general election ballot.

District Clerk Reba Ellison Squyres, County Clerk JoAnn Chastain, Tax Assessor/Collector Thelma “Midget” Sherman, Pct. 1 Commissioner Rick Harrison and Pct. 3 Constable Belton Wayne Havard all changed their party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, according to a press release from the Angelina County Republican Party.
