Vick, currently an evidence technician, relied on her experience of owning and operating a business and a large circle of friends and supporters.
There is no Democratic challenger for the seat.
Jeane Brunson, meanwhile, held off a challenge from within her own office to win re-election as Parker County Clerk. Paula Durant, an administrative assistant to Brunson, lost as Brunson registered 58 percent of the Republican primary vote to 42 percent for Durant. There is no Democratic challenger for the seat.
“I’m excited,” Brunson said. “It’s been a challenging few months for everyone involved. I’m ready to get back to work, as are my employees.”
“I’d like to thank everyone in Parker County who supported me,” Brunson added.
Durant said she enjoyed the experience and plans to run for office again.
“I am so proud of the race I ran and I am overwhelmed at the support,” Durant said. “I enjoyed so much the experience and I will do it again.”
As to whether she thinks she will keep her job in the county clerk’s office, Durant said, “It is up to her. It is kind of unprecedented. No one in Parker County has ever run against their boss again. We will see. I hope by holding her feet to the fire it will make her and make (other officeholders) more accountable. I am fully prepared for whatever happens.”
Results are final but unofficial pending a canvass of the returns by county commissioners.
