Brian Hutcheson’s values are lived out daily through his hard work as a small business owner and now the Justice of the Peace for Precinct 2, Place 1. These Christian values are what he strives to demonstrate daily before his daughters’ eyes as they watch him serve his community and take a stand for that which is Biblically moral and right.
Growing up in Mesquite, he has always called Dallas County home. Brian graduated from Poteet High School and was raised working in the family business – Ace Hardware. His work ethic and compassion have shaped Brian as he follows a sense of duty and calling to serve others.
Even in his years at Texas A&M University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2002, Brian was actively involved in teaching incoming students conservative values and traditions on campus. During summer breaks, Brian devoted his time to youth camps, striving to enrich the lives of at risk youth by teaching them life skills, a good work ethic and the importance of maintaining their integrity.
After graduating, he sought to return home to join the family business where he took on the management of ACE Hardware in Mesquite. He married his bride, Ashley, in 2003 and began a family shortly thereafter.
Brian grew up attending La Prada Church of Christ where his family has attended all his life. Brian became a deacon in 2011, being faithful to serve and love the people around him.
The core of Brian’s life has always been centered around his family – his beautiful wife Ashley and their five daughters. Outside of his immediate family and church family, he has also had a longstanding drive to serve his community. He began his public service on the Mesquite City Council, which he served from 2010 to 2012, getting a taste of life in the public eye. When the opportunity to run for Justice of the Peace arose, Brian felt a calling to represent his fellow citizens and small business owners – the main people that the Justice of the Peace court serves. He had a strong desire to make sure that our Justice court reflected the Christian values our community shares. He campaigned and delivered on his promise to stand up for traditional marriage, instead of bending to the whims of our changing culture.
Brian ran the race in 2015-2016 with integrity along with the help of his family, friends and fellow citizens. He was blessed to win and was sworn in as the Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2, Place 1 on November 23, 2016.
The love he has for service, family, church, and community continues to propel Brian. He is consistently thinking outside the box, pressing to make the Justice Court more friendly, efficient and approachable for our community.
We can trust Brian Hutcheson as our citizen jurist, representing the people of Precinct 2 in the court with wisdom and integrity.
