Adam Zenner formally has announced his bid to seek election for the office of Kendall County Precinct 1 constable in the March 2020 Republican Primary.
As a sixth-generation native of Kendall County, Zenner said he is uniquely qualified to assist this rapidly growing community. He said he understands the needs of the multi-generational families as well as the large number of new residents.
Zenner said he is prepared and looking forward to bringing a much-needed, high level of commitment to the position.
At age 18 in 1989, Zenner began protecting Kendall County and has continued to do so for more than 30 years as a volunteer firefighter. He rose to the rank of captain and served in that capacity for more than 28 years and was a member of the Kendall County EMS for more than a decade.
He is a 1990 graduate of Boerne High School. In 1991, he graduated from the Texas A&M TEEX Firefighting Academy and completed his EMT training through Kendall County EMS.
Zenner has been a career firefighter for 22 years. He began his career with the Terrell Hills Fire Department in 1997 and served as a captain for more than eight years. He left Terrell Hills to join the newly formed Boerne Fire Department as a lieutenant.
He and two others were the first paid firefighters in the history of Kendall County. As a lieutenant his duties include being a shift officer, incident commander and facilitator of both shift duties and training.
During the last 30 years of service Zenner has accumulated thousands of hours of emergency service training to include advanced firefighter, intermediate EMT, fire investigator, instructor II, fire inspector, advanced swift-water rescue technician and wildland firefighter. He will be attending the law enforcement academy in January 2020.
Zenner and his family live on his family’s original homestead land founded in 1859 located in Precinct 1. He and his wife, Darla, also a Boerne High graduate and Boerne resident for almost 40 years, raised their sons here.
“I am looking forward to serving the citizens of Kendall County in the office of constable,” Zenner said. “I feel that it is very important to bring a high level of commitment to this position. I see the importance of fulfilling the sworn duties of the constable’s office in the court and on the street. I will strive to be seen in the community by patrolling our streets, neighborhoods, businesses and by assisting the other law enforcement agencies and emergency services within our county when needed.”
