LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: No-smoking ban should include all workplaces


Rosemary Barron, Willow Park

Writer supports Riley for judge

Dear Editor,

To my friends, I would ask you to support my friend, Judge Mark Riley, in the upcoming primary.

I have known Mark for many years and worked with him. He is known as a great judge for all his time and effort in serving Parker County. His experience and knowledge cannot be understood by many residents. He has served us greatly.

Please vote for experience and knowledge of our county government – Mark Riley for county judge.

Carrie Reed, Springtown

Former clerk supports current clerk

Dear Editor,

I’m writing this letter to ask you to join me in voting to keep Jeane Brunson Parker County Clerk.

As many of you know, I was county clerk for 19 years before I retired. I first met Jeane in 1990 when she began working for a previous county judge as his court coordinator.

I was impressed with her honesty, always willing to help, and her integrity. When I retired in 1992, I supported Jeane in her bid to be appointed by commissioners court to fill my unexpired term. She was chosen by the court and was sworn in as the new county clerk in February 1993. I’ve supported her in every election since that time.

I’ve endorsed her each election because I know Jeane Brunson has been an asset to Parker County government. She is dedicated to doing what is right even if it is the unpopular thing to do, has been very conservative in spending our tax dollars and has seen to the smooth operation of five offices and five budgets through the many changes over the years. She has brought current technology into the Records and Deeds office without using our tax dollars.

It only makes good sense that we keep her 22 years experience as Parker County Clerk working for us.
