Q&A: The race for Parker County Clerk

The WD recently sent questionnaires to the candidates in contested county races in the March 4 primary elections. The candidates were asked to provide background information and answers, in 300 words or less, to questions posed to them. Early voting begins Feb. 18. Today we look at the Republican primary candidates for county clerk Jeane Brunson and Paula Hawkins Durant. There is no Democratic opponent.

Age: 62 years young

Occupation: County clerk and local registrar, Parker County, Texas.

Family: four grown children with successful careers – an accounting professor at a college in Colorado, a successful business owner, a teacher who just received her master’s degree and a computer programmer for a large company. I am blessed.
