Frye to contest Glover in District Clerk race

(Continued)

As for the future, Glover said her office has plans to start e-filling soon – a system of submitting and storing important documents electronically. Glover said the state has a program to bring county offices online and she hopes to be e-filing within the first six month of next year, which is important because the Eastland County Court of Appeals has mandated, as of Jan. 1, that all appeals to their office be sent electronically. Glover has further ideas for this new filing system that would effect local citizens.

“We are going to look at a system where we can make documents available (to the public) online,” she said. “We’re trying to decide whether that will be paid or free. My preference is that they would be more private (and paid).

“At some point in time it will have to happen, but I’m just not an advocate of putting private material online. Things that happen in this office are usually very emotional and affect people a lot. It’s been a major happening in their life and some just want to move on.”

Glover said she felt like she was not only most qualified to continue in her position, but also that she wanted to run because it is something she considers very important and has enjoyed a great deal.

“I would just appreciate the consideration of all the voters in the county to allow me to continue to run the office with integrity,” she said. “I’ve enjoyed my tenure, so far, and i love being a servant to the people of Palo Pinto County.”

Stacie Frye

Stacie Frye will challenge Palo Pinto’s current District Clerk of over a decade with the hopes of bringing in a fresh, modern perspective to the office.

Although Frye is the Code Enforcement Secretary for the City of Mineral Wells, she is not as unexperienced in matters of the district court as she might seem. She told the Index she spent eight years working in the District Clerk’s office, seven of which she spent under Glover. She said serving as District Clerk is something she has always wanted to do in the future and thought 2014 was as good a time as any to start putting her name into the conversation.
