Burnet County District Clerk seeking another term in 2014

CASIE WALKER

FROM STAFF REPORTS

BURNET — With the first day of filing for the 2014 Republican primary approaching, Burnet County District Clerk Casie Walker recently announced her intention to seek re-election to the post she won three years ago.

Walker, who joined the clerk’s office in 2004, told voters during her first campaign she planned to restructure the office to make it more efficient, something she said she has accomplished.

“I set out to make this office more accessible to the public and become a friendly place for anyone who walks through the doors,” Walker said. “The office receives numerous compliments from citizens, judges and attorneys who really appreciate an office that’s not only friendly but efficiently serves the needs of Burnet County; and I take pride int that fact.”

As a lifelong Burnet County resident, Walker said she enjoys meeting the needs of the residents.

“God has truly blessed me with a life and career that I am very proud of, and it is my passion to continue to serve the greatest county in Texas as district clerk,” she said. “I’m committed to the citizens of Burnet County and the position of district clerk. I work hard every day to maintain the great reputation and high standards that I developed for my office to serve Burnet County in the best possible way.”

Along with her husband, Brett, and their children, Walker attends church in Burnet and is active in community events. And she enjoys volunteering when an organization needs assistance.

Walker likely will face at least one challenger in the March primary as Lisa Hopkins Bell recently announced her intention to run for the Republican Party nomination for district clerk.
