Carlow to step down as Bowie County Judge

Years of Bowie County stability highlight career of longtime judge

Longtime Bowie County Judge James Carlow announced his retirement this morning at a regular session of the Bowie County Commissioners Court. His last day in office will be September 30, 2019.

Judge James Carlow has been a catalyst for growth and change in Bowie County for decades, and can be credited for many of the things we take for granted here in Bowie County. His most recent years of service have seen the county recover from a devastating financial crisis brought on by a previous administration, and his tireless efforts to make Bowie County financially stable have not gone unrewarded.

His diligent and unending efforts to improve the local economy, bring in jobs and improve the county’s infrastructure have been and forever will be his legacy, not only here in Bowie County, but in the State of Texas.

In the announcement this morning, Carlow stated, “We are where we wanted to be when I came back and I appreciate the support I have enjoyed from the commissioners, elected officials and my family.
