Maintaining the rich history of Denton County is my passion. I am seeking re-election to continue the spirit of exceptionalism we’ve brought to this office. The knowledge from 17 years of experience (10 years as a deputy clerk and 7 years as the elected official) has prepared me to make important decisions that impact constituents. I will continue to draw on the knowledge base and established working relationships with state officials to keep this office as one of the leading offices in Texas.

Denton County residents deserve easy access to county records and transparency in government. I plan to make accessing your county records as painless as possible by creating clear information systems, extending office hours, and putting citizens’ needs first.
