Former Bexar Sheriff confirmed as U.S. Marshal for West Texas
(Posted: Wednesday, Sep 05, 2018)
The U.S. Senate has confirmed former Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau as the new U.S. marshal for the San Antonio-based Western District of Texas.
The “unanimous consent” voice vote of the lawmakers late Tuesday made Pamerleau the first woman to run the Marshals Service in the local district, according to its website, which lists the 32 previous marshals since the district was created 173 years ago.
Pamerleau, 72, replaces a now-retired interim marshal who filled the post after the last politically appointed marshal, Robert Almonte, stepped down in 2016. “I am really honored to serve my nation in this new role,” Pamerleau said Wednesday. “It really continues a legacy of service I got from my parents, serving in the military, the residents of Bexar County and now on the federal level with the Department of Justice.”
President Donald Trump announced her nomination in May. She begins her new role in mid-September after Trump signs her commission, Pamerleau said.
