I am motivated to run for the County Clerk because I love my job and what I do. I have a compassion for working with and serving the people and if I can help one person, I am successful. I feel I am a compassionate and a caring individual who listens. I have a desire to make a difference. I am the record keeper for the county, and the records belong to the citizens of Comal County. I aim to keep the integrity and history of these records a high priority. I come to work every day to face whatever challenge is brought before me. I have a great support staff and together we work very hard to achieve our goals.
You must have the ability to provide for the public and their needs while following the law. A very important quality of a county clerk is to be a leader and a team player. Our county officials need to work together with a common goal for the community. You need to have the willingness to listen and learn. I am only as successful as my staff. Without them I could not operate this office. I have led my office in the direction of less paper and electronic records. We have been very successful with the electronic process. This has increased the public access to records as well as the accuracy of the records. We strive everyday to deliver excellent customer service and I believe we have accomplished this. I maintain the same hours as my staff and I am here from 8:00 – 5:00 and available to the public.
If re-elected, I want to continue bringing the clerk’s office into the 21st century. Since being elected I have brought to the office a less paper process. I have brought forward e-recording in the Official Public Records (OPR) and introduced e-filing in the courts which allows people to submit documents online. We don’t have paper files anymore. I have uploaded sovereignty to current into a searchable data base for land records called Roam. You can search and purchase records online. My office is currently working on indexing these older records to clean-up any errors. I have re-organized and brought our plat system online. I hope to add marriage kiosks into the office. In my elections department we will be replacing the e-poll books with know-ink poll pads. This will allow for a less paper environment in the elections office. I am confident that my goals for a less paper environment throughout my departments will not only continue saving tax payer dollars but increase efficiency.
I have been involved in County government for 37 years. My career began in Guadalupe County as Chief Deputy in the District Clerk’s office. I worked in Guadalupe county for 14 ½ years. I then moved to Comal County and applied with the County Clerk’s office. I was hired in December 1994 by Joy Streater as her Chief Deputy for the courts section. I served in that capacity until Joy decided to retire and I ran for the County Clerk position in 2014. I feel that my education in all facets of the clerk’s office have benefited me. I have worked the courts, elections, the land/vital sections and commissioners’ court. One of my goals is to learn something new every day.
