This letter is to endorse you for your bid as District Clerk. You are the only candidate running for this position that I feel is qualified and has the "on hands experience" needed to operate the office without hesitation.
Had I known what I know now, I would have retired when I first shattered my leg and asked the Judges to appoint you. Never the less, you ran the office as if it were your own. Without any pay increase, without any promises of advancement or time off, you stepped up to the plate and handled everything with ease. You proved your capabilities and showed others that you were very able and willing to run the office under pressure and duress.
There is no facet of the District Clerk's office that you aren't well versed in. After all, you helped implement each and every new innovation that exists today. You always put the office first and above your private life. You never complained about working weekends or after hours in order to catch up and stay abreast of situations beyond our control.
I never heard you grumble about anything petty or important. To you, everything had a deadline to meet and by golly that deadline was going to be met regardless of whatever else might arise.
You are the only candidate I would ever consider appropriate or suitable to fit the title as the District Clerk of Bee County. I know it has been your life long dream to achieve this goal, yet you helped me campaign time after time to ensure my re-election. For that, I can never thank you enough. But in the same sense, it shows how impartial and fair minded you are.
I could go on and on with praises about you, but instead I will close with saying that God is with you as you well know. With the recent loss of your mother, my heart goes out to you. Campaigning for office is like a roller coaster ride. Taking you to the top and dropping quickly. I pray your loss won't keep you at the end of your ride very long. Your mother raised you to be the fine Christian woman you are today.
You are my friend and above all else, you are the QUALIFIED and EXPERIENCED candidate for BEE COUNTY DISTRICT CLERK. You will win this election and when you do, I hope to be there with you.
God bless you and keep you. With all my prayers and heartfelt gratitude for your help to me, I wish you the best of luck!
With true admiration and sincerity,
Your friend and former District Clerk of Bee County
