Amiee Freeman has announced her candidacy for Henderson County District Clerk.

Incumbent District Clerk Becky Hanks will retire at the end of her term in 2010, and endorses Freeman for the post.

“The District Clerk is a unique county office, requiring specialized knowledge, experience, and leadership, to properly serve our courts. Amiee has that knowledge, experience, and leadership to make a great District Clerk,” Hanks said.

Freeman, a Republican, has worked as a Henderson County Deputy Clerk for eight years.

“I am ready to serve the people of Henderson County as District Clerk. Becky Hanks' endorsement is a great honor,” Freeman said. “The reporting requirements imposed on the District Clerk’s Office by the state, including technicalities in filing of cases, demands knowledge of the office. Henderson County needs someone that will not require expensive on-the-job training, and who has a proven record of working with the judges to keep our courts running efficiently.”

Freeman grew up in Henderson County, graduating from Mabank High School. She continued her education by earning an Associates Degree from Trinity Valley Community College.  

Freeman is the President of the Henderson County Young Republicans, an active member of the Lone Star Republican Women, and the Cedar Creek Republican Club. 

Freeman serves as the coordinator for the Henderson County Healthy County Program. She has also begun receiving the endorsements of local community leaders.

“If elected, I will continue the professionalism of Becky Hanks in leading this office,” said Freeman.

The Republican primary election will be on March 2, 2010.
