I know and understand the laws and statutes to which the office of the county clerk must adhere and do not deviate from them. My reputation while serving the people of Parker County is that of dedication, integrity and conservative management. I will continue to promote these attributes in all my offices.
Under my supervision, the records and deeds office has advanced from hand-stamping documents and using an antiquated “National” cash register to a reliable, high-tech cashiering and recording system. I am the best candidate to be (re-)elected as your Parker County Clerk because I have the education, ability and proven experience in every arena of the offices managed by the county clerk. I have shown beyond a doubt I am very conservative and conscientious as to how our tax dollars are spent.
For 22 years, with the exception of a brief health sabbatical, I have been available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I have always been active in our community so I can stay in touch with people to understand their needs and expectations of the county clerk’s office. I respectfully ask voters to cast their ballot for integrity, honesty, proven leadership and 22 years on-the-job experience and vote to keep me, Jeane Brunson, your Parker County Clerk.
