Earnest Pack Has Worn Lots of Hats

Mayor Earnest Pack

If you were born after 1998, Earnest Pack has been the Mayor of Teague for the majority of your life. He served from 1998 to 2006 and then ran again in 2010 and just began a new two-year term this year. Obviously the citizens of Teague trust Mr. Pack and his ability to do a good job for the city.

The Pack family became established in Texas when Earnest’s great grandfather, Smith Pack, came to the Erath Community of Huckabay from Missouri in 1870. He bought farmland that, over time, turned into hundreds of acres of farm and ranch land. Earnest Pack was born on May 11, 1937 to Calvin Houston and Cecil Jones Pack and grew up on the family farm. When he was young he remembers his parents plowing the fields with mules but around 1940 they bought a tractor and Earnest was plowing fields before he turned 10 year old. Earnest worked hard on the farm harvesting crops, building and mending fences, feeding the animals and milking the cows. In 1947, his father converted the family farm into a dairy farm, which grew into a major business operation. Earnest and his brothers worked hard on the farm every morning before going to school and after school they were back to work at the dairy before anyone could attend school activities or participate in sports...
