(Seguin) -- A long-time Guadalupe County resident wants to be the next District Clerk. Kristy Dunn, has officially filed for a place on the ballot for the March Republican Primary.

Dunn says she is passionate about the potential she sees in the District Clerk's office and appreciates those who have encouraged her to promote "a new level of leadership, communication and customer service to the office."

"Definitely the call to public service happen for me 22 years ago when I entered public education. So the call to service now is greater than its ever been for me. It's a much larger opportunity for me and I am so excited and so enthusiastic about the potential for what the district clerk's office has in store and what the position has for me as a candidate for district clerk. So it's really been about wanting to serve the public and being able to do that on a larger scale," said Dunn.

Dunn says her passion for the potential job has already allowed her to proactively reach out to various District Clerks from around the state – gathering a working "knowledge of what they see as 'best practices.'"

"I've spoken with district clerks from various counties and got their input on their best practices. What they see are just really solid performance standards. What they set in their office, and those are the things I want to bring to the Guadalupe County District Clerk's Office -- if that need is there. To see, really, what needs are there and to address those needs. Definitely when you get into a position like this there's a high level of technical learning that goes on, and that definitely is coming for me. It would come in time for me, because this is a new arena for me in terms of the kind of office that I would be working in. Again it's just knowing how to approach the job, knowing how to approach the different situations that come up and really handling them with professionalism and a very strong work ethic. Those are the two components that I will definitely bring to the district clerk's office," said Dunn.

Dunn, who describes herself as a 22 year veteran of public education, says quite a few of the most effective officials within Guadalupe County have come into office from a different backgrounds, bringing with them a new set of eyes and (an) overall new perspective to the office.

The Republican Primary is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
