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.

**********

Name: Jeane Brunson

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.

Educational background: University of Denver-Paralegal and Legal Assistant; Weatherford College-Computer Programming and Real Estate courses.

Professional affiliations/memberships: County & District Clerks Association of Texas, chair of Nominating Committee (past board of directors, Legislative Committee chair, finalist for Texas County Clerk of the Year; Memorial Committee chair); Parker County Bar Association.

Why do you believe you are the best candidate for the position of Parker County Clerk? Why should a voter cast their ballot for you in the March primary?

I’ve proven to be a dedicated public servant for all Parker County citizens as county clerk-local registrar for the past 22 years. Under my administration, all people are served in the most friendly, educated, efficient and economic manner possible.
