I care about our community. I believe the office of the county clerk is the front door of our community, an introduction to who we are in Comal County. Leading up to December’s candidate filing deadline, I spoke with small business owners and residents throughout our community and asked them about their concerns for our local government. I learned what matters most to them. My goal is to strengthen the office of county clerk to respond to their concerns. When we work together for the common good, we all benefit.
The county clerk must be able to interact with diverse groups of external/internal stakeholders throughout our community. The office carries a unique responsibility to maintain the integrity of the county’s vital record keeping by establishing where necessary and maintaining where existing, unbiased and trustworthy systems to aid county government in information processing. During my 20+ year professional career, I have managed information systems and directed diverse teams of professionals. I am tech-savvy and understand the mechanics of information processing, and know how to build consensus, manage expectations, and bring high-level attention-to-detail essential to the office of county clerk.
While the county clerk’s role is process-driven, there are three policy concerns I plan to address: Optimal use of County Resources – Comal County’s new election center, paid for with tax dollars, should be available for voting for any and all registered voters in Comal County. Voting Systems - Comal County is one of 103 Texas counties without a paper backup system. We have no reliable way to recount votes in the event of challenges. Mandatory vote-by-mail ballots for seniors – Providing our senior citizens with ballots each year without the required request via application would make it easier, not more difficult, for elder citizens to cast votes by mail.
I have prepared my entire life for this opportunity to serve our community and the best interests of our citizens. Both my mother and father were in the military. As such, we traveled the world. This unique perspective taught me that to succeed I must be willing to listen and learn from others’ perspectives, adjust to any situation, and understand how to overcome challenges. Comal County is rapidly growing with a diverse population migrating here from other parts of Texas and the country. We must be prepared for this growth to deliver exceptional service in support of our community.
