Frye to contest Glover in District Clerk race


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.

Having previewed races for County Judge and Democratic County Chair earlier this week, the next election up is the race for District Clerk, which features the incumbent Janie Glover against Mineral Wells Code Enforcement Secretary Stacie Frye.

Let’s meet the candidates for District Clerk:

Janie Glover

Incumbent Janie Glover is running for her fourth consecutive term as Palo Pinto District Clerk, having been appointed to the position by the honorable Judge Jerry Ray in March of 2003. After 11 years in Palo Pinto, the primary strength of Glover’s campaign is her experience in the position.

She told the Index she hopes that this experience and her accomplishments in office register with local voters.

“I just feel like experience speaks,” she said. “I have a proven track record. I have done a lot to modernize (the office) and one of my goals is to maintain the integrity of the old records we have.”

In addition to her regular duties serving as support staff for the district judge and pulling all juries for county offices, Glover said she has had some of the court’s books refurbished that date back to as early as when Palo Pinto County Courthouse was first established in the 1857. She said she also maintains a good, working relationship with the Palo Pinto County Bar Association – a professional body of local lawyers.

Glover said she also maintains trust accounts to award monetary funds for minors and others who are injured or incapacitated. She said, on average, she manages about $300,000 out of this account “with honesty and integrity.”
