From Staff Reports
The City of Slaton has a new Municipal Court Judge.
Tory J. “TJ” McAuley started his first day of work Monday (Jan. 17) at City Hall.
He will work only on Mondays every week.
McAuley replaces Pam King, who resigned in December. Her resignation was effective the day McAuley started.
King will still be the City Secretary for Slaton, and City Mayor Clif Shaw said she will help McAuley with his duties as he adjusts to the Slaton position.
Shaw added he was given authority by the council to hire McAuley during the last City Council meeting.
McAuley comes to Slaton from Shallowater, where he is the judge presiding.
He also is a judge presiding for the City of Tahoka and a contract law enforcement instructor for the South Plains Association of Governments, teaching several classes.
McAuley also was a certified police officer for the Lubbock Police Department from 1988-2009, and has served as a volunteer fireman, EMT-basic, Little League and Little Dribblers Coach, Boy Scout Troop Leader, Explorer Post Leader, Church Youth Leader, RA Leader and City Council Alderman.
