I believe that my education and years of administrative and management experience will help lead the department and staff to attain a gold-star level of customer service to the constituents of Cameron County.
The most important challenges facing the office of County Clerk will be to bring quality and professional service to the constituents of Cameron County. Fiduciary responsibilities must be the paramount area of concern, in order to be responsible to the tax-payers of this county.
Organizing a qualified and educated staff, placing them in areas of their knowledge and expertise. Creating a working environment which develops and retains the best talent for the various areas of responsibilities of the department. A fiscal responsibility of the purchases, income, staff salaries and overall budget of the department. Serving the constituents with gold star service.
If elected, I pledge to reach out to other county clerks and seek their advice and leadership in the services they provide to their constituents, in order to make decisions which would be best for our county. All contracts and services will be reviewed in order to make fiscal and responsible decisions for the tax-payers and constituents of Cameron County.
