Brandi Emmons Parker Announces Candidacy For Lawrence County Clerk
I would like to take this time to officially announce my candidacy to serve as your next Lawrence County Clerk. When moving to Lawrence County over 20 years ago, after marrying my husband Richard, I witnessed what a wonderful and caring community that Lawrence County is. While I wasn’t born and raised here, Lawrence County quickly became my home and to this day there’s no better place I’d rather be. It is the home where Richard and I have raised our three children; Tyler (wife Danielle), twin daughters Hanna and Haley, and where we will soon watch our first grandchild grow up.
Over the past 18 years, I have had the privilege of meeting and working alongside countless amazing Lawrence County residents through my time involved in Juvenile Justice and various Circuit Courts. My lifelong desire has always been to be an encouragement and Christlike servant to others. In 2003, I began my first career serving Lawrence County as the Outreach Case Worker for Consolidated Youth Services. During my 11 years of serving in that position I was given the opportunity to work with hundreds of remarkable families, school faculty, law enforcement, and community leaders throughout the county.
In 2015, I accepted the position of Lawrence County Juvenile Intake Officer. For 6 years I had the honor of serving this great county by protecting our youth and communities and promoting positive outcomes for Lawrence County families.
In January 2021, I began serving as the Trial Court Administrator for the 3rd Judicial District. This position has allowed me to continue serving Lawrence County residents and has provided me the opportunity to become well versed with all aspects of the court system. I have gained first hand knowledge of court proceedings, both in the court room and behind the scenes, the sacredness of the voting process, the responsibilities belonging to the County Clerk’s Office, and the importance of efficiency, confidentiality, and professionalism.
The past 18 years have afforded me the opportunity to become knowledge in operating the state’s Contexte computer system, maintaining records, and becoming certified by the National Center For State Court Institute For Court Management In Caseflow And Workflow Management, Accountability, And Court Performance. I’ve had daily opportunities to interact with the public and have done so with kindness and professionalism, and most of all represent Lawrence County with the dignity and respect it’s citizens deserve.
If elected as your next Lawrence County Clerk, I vow to seek continued education in order to stay well informed and serve this county to the fullest. I vow to uphold qualities such as professionalism, efficiency, kindness, and respect both within my office and the community. I believe that becoming an elected official is more than just the office you hold, it is a representation of the citizens and communities you serve. Over the past 18 years, I have strived to represent Lawrence County in a trustworthy and courteous manner. I would be honored to have your vote and be allowed to continue serving this county as your next Lawrence County Clerk.
