Three vie for County Clerk seat

By CLINT FOSTER

The 2014 Republican primary election in March is just three months away and, this year, locals have a wealth of GOP candidates to choose from at the county level.

As part of a continuing series, the Index is previewing each of the three contested races in the upcoming Republican primary, breaking down the candidates and helping voters to be as informed as possible.

With the races for County Judge and District Clerk covered, we turn our attention to the third, final and biggest contested race in the upcoming Republican primary: the County Clerk election. Three candidates are vying for County Clerk this time around, as incumbent Janette Green will face off against Debbie Murray, formerly of the Palo Pinto County Appraisal District, and Loan Assistant Jessica Wright.

Let’s meet the candidates for County Clerk:

Janette Green

Incumbent Janette Green is vying for her second term as Palo Pinto County Clerk, having unseated the previous clerk, Bobby Smith, in the 2010 election. Green has almost seven years of total experience in the clerk’s office, working there from 2004 to 2007 before a brief trip to the county tax offices followed by the 2010 election.

Green said she is running again for the simple fact that she loves what she does.

“I love what we do in that office,” she said. “I love the variety. The County Clerk’s office is probably the most diverse office besides the Sheriff’s Office in the county. We handle so many different types of filings. Every day is different and I love that.”

In addition to her experience, Green said she has a list of accomplishments from her first term that make her the most qualified for the job. She said she has done a lot to upgrade the office, including the capability to scan documents with plans to move closer to becoming paperless and even more accessible to the public.
