Denton County Precinct 2 Commissioner Ron Marchant, who has held the seat since 2007, announced Tuesday he will not run for reelection in 2022.

Marchant made the announcement at the end of Tuesday morning’s county Commissioners Court meeting, thanking citizens.

“It has been my honor and pleasure to serve you for the last 15 years,” Marchant said. “I pray that when my current term is over that I have left Denton County a better place than when I took office.”

Marchant’s term will expire at the end of 2022, following the November elections. Reached before officials went to closed session at the meeting, he said he wanted “24 hours” before commenting further on his decision.
