A longtime Victoria County employee announced Monday she will seek the Republican Party nomination for county clerk.
Heidi Easley, 44, earned her Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Business from Sam Houston State University.
She began her career about 20 years ago in the county clerk's office as a deputy clerk, where she processed criminal, civil and probate cases for county courts-at-law.
She also recorded official records, such as deeds and property transactions, as well as issued marriage licenses.
In 1999, she transferred to the district attorney's office. She is the chief clerk of the felony division, responsible for case intake, drafting felony paperwork, making docket preparations and contacting law enforcement and the public daily.
"Having served in different roles in both of these offices, I believe I am uniquely qualified to serve as county clerk," Easley said.
Easley has been married to Kenneth Easley Jr., a Victoria County Precinct 3 constable, for 17 years. They have two children: Nicole, 15, and Clayton, 11.
Robert Cortez, the Victoria County clerk, has filed for re-election on the Democratic Party ticket.
