Housewright files for City Marshal

Greg Housewright has served in law enforcement for the last 10 years and has been employed by the Waxahachie Police Department as a patrolman for more than five years.
He began his career in law enforcement in 1997 when he was hired by the Ennis Police department as a patrolman.
A graduate of St. John High School in 1994, Housewright enrolled in Navarro College where he studied criminal justice until 1997. He continued his education in criminal justice at the North Texas Council of Governments Police Academy in Arlington, Texas.
Bill Woody and the Ellis County Constables Office Pct. No. 1 sponsored Housewright as a candidate in what he says is one of the most sought after and prestigious academies in the state.
While employed with the Ennis Police Department, Housewright was utilized as both the physical fitness coordinator of the S.W.A.T. team, and the team leader. He has since served Waxahachie’s Police Department as a Field Training Officer (FTO), and has been a member of its S.W.A.T. team as well. He has received just under 1,900 hours of continual law enforcement training, and has been awarded an Advanced Certification of Law Enforcement.
Housewright is a 25-year resident of Ennis and in July of 1999, Greg married his high school sweetheart, Vickie Vitovsky. The two currently live in the house she grew up in. Vickie is a teacher at St. John School as well as an aerobics instructor for Lone Star Fitness and Navarro College. Housewright is a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church along with his mother and step-father Danny and Betty Cruz. He also attends mass at St. John Church with his wife Vickie.
“I would like to personally thank the City of Ennis and its citizens for this monumental opportunity,” Housewright said. “The City of Ennis not only gave me my first opportunity to pursue my dream of being a police officer, it will now afford me with a chance of reaching my ultimate goal as Police Chief. I pledge to lead as a servant, one that treats all members of staff with dignity and respect. As a leader, I will be honest, forthright and demand the highest level of competency, productivity and quality. I will welcome others to speak out and demand the highest level of ethical, moral and professional conduct and behavior. I would like to thank the citizens of Ennis for their time and for the opportunity to once again serve the community of Ennis, Texas.”
