Heidi Easley announces 2018 re-election plans

Posted: Updated:

Continuing to receive recognition for how a program she initiated in the County Clerk’s Office to digitize cattle brand records will help local law enforcement, ranchers, and the public identify cattle scattered during a natural disaster, Victoria County Clerk Heidi Easley has announced that she will seek re-election in 2018.

“Time seems to have flown by since being sworn in as Victoria County Clerk, and the past three years have been very busy as we reorganize the office to better serve the public and save money. We’ve been working hard in the County Clerk’s Office to streamline operations and enhance customer service, and more improvements and good things are in the works. It’s a genuine honor to serve as County Clerk in the same office where I began my service with Victoria County nearly 25 years ago.” Easley said.

Easley began her career in public service at the County Clerk’s Office, serving as a Deputy County Clerk for five years. Easley was then recruited by the Victoria County District Attorney’s Office, where she worked her way up to become Chief Clerk of the Felony Division. After being encouraged to run by people from around the county, she campaigned for County Clerk in 2014 as a Republican and was elected. Easley has made several positive changes to improve customer service at the County Clerk’s Office, including returning the office to the longer normal business hours of 8:00a.m.-5:00p.m.

She has also worked with Victoria County District Clerk Cathy Stuart to implement an integrated electronic system for our County Courts-at-Law and District Courts, reducing the amount of paper used in standard court proceedings. Keeping at the forefront of upcoming mandated e-filing for criminal cases, Easley has begun permitting e-filing by attorneys for pending criminal cases. Hundreds of civil lawsuits and estate probate cases are now e-filed each year in the County Clerk’s Office.

“In the aftermath of the hurricane, people applying for FEMA aid or emergency loans are needing certified copies of their property deeds and other documents, and we’ve made it a top priority to help them get what they need to fill out those applications,” Easley said. She has also been to Rockport helping the Aransas County Clerk’s Office staff and delivering needed supplies to help them recover.

Easley, 48, is a graduate of Victoria public schools, and earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Sam Houston State University. She has been married to Kenneth Easley Jr., Victoria County Precinct 3 Constable, for over 20 years. They have two teenage children: Nicole and Clayton. Easley is active in our community, with service on the Nazareth Academy Advisory Council, the Victoria City-County Employee Credit Union Board and its Supervisory Committee, and the Victoria County 4-H Adult Leaders Association. The Easleys are members of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
