As Parker County Clerk, I will be available to all citizens as well as my employees. I will act as a liaison between the courts, bail bondsman and attorneys. I will strive for efficiency in all my offices to make day to day transactions easier and more cost effective.
How would you describe the primary responsibilities of the position and the office?
This is a position that touches every citizen of Parker County. The county gives the task of maintaining the history of Parker County to the clerk through public records. We maintain your birth, death and marriage records, your brands, your business names and even your liquor license. We maintain your civil and minor criminal case files, your divorce records and adoptions.
Is there a specific program or operational change you would make in the next four years to make the office more streamlined, cost- or performance-efficient and customer friendly?
I grew up in the Information Age and I am an advocate for technology. The growth projections for Parker County are astounding. We are currently the 11th fastest-growing county in the U.S.!
The only way we can continue to serve the county well is to increase productivity. This means all our records need to be digitized and made online and kept completely up to date. Our staff needs to be trained and equipped with the latest software and technology to make accessing these records quick and efficient. We lag behind other counties of our size in our use of technology and as we grow this gap will only grow. Parker County needs a clerk the embraces technology and narrows our productivity gap. I will be that clerk.
Is there anything else you would like to accomplish within the clerk’s office in the next term if elected?
