Packed house listens, asks questions to local GOP candidates


In her closing comments, Glover again stressed her proven track record and the significance of her “great staff” that “makes me look good” and she appreciates “more than they’ll ever know.” She said she enjoys her job and providing the best possible customer service while providing leadership, integrity and professionalism.

In contrast to Glover, Frye said she hopes to bring a fresh, modern perspective to the office. She is no stranger to the District Clerk’s office, serving eight years as a clerk, including seven under Glover. She said she would love to work in the office again and have the “opportunity to make a difference.”

One key question brought up to these women was how they would motivate their employees to provide the best customer service possible. Both candidates harkened back to the golden rule, saying that if they treat their employees and customers with respect, their employees will follow their lead and do the same.

County Clerk

The three-candidate race for County Clerk made up the finale for the evening as incumbent Janette Green, Jessica Wright and Debbie Murray split time answering eight questions – one more than had been asked of the previous four candidates in two races combined.

First to the podium was Murray, who detailed a lifetime in Palo Pinto County as well as her experience working for the Palo Pinto County Appraisal District for 12 years in the 1970’s and ‘80s. She spoke of her customer service experience both working in retail for most of her life and currently as a sales manager for a PVC company. In her closing statement she said she wants to show her leadership and commitment by being challenged and “there for the people of Palo Pinto County everyday.”

Wright – a loan assistant at First Financial Bank in Mineral Wells and 13-year veteran of the banking industry – said she has always wanted to hold a public office. She said she strives to better herself and be more involved in the community. As she has throughout her campaign, she continued to preach the importance of customer service and that people have a positive experience in the clerk’s office. In her closing statement, she said she wants to bring “accuracy, accountability, availability and advice” to the position.
