Kelley Robinson Price has announced her candidacy for reelection for the office of Wood County clerk.
Price is a 1987 Graduate of Quitman High School and received her Associates Degree in Science from Connors State College in Warner, Oklahoma.
She was employed by the Wood County Clerk’s Office in 2001 under the direction of the former County Clerk, Brenda Taylor, and served as her chief deputy until Taylor’s retirement in 2010.
Currently, serving her second term as Wood County clerk, Price has served as the County and District Clerk’s Association of Texas Region VI director; she was also appointed to serve on the Nominating Committee for the association as well as the Education Committee. Price has been awarded numerous Exemplary Five Star Designation Awards as the local registrar by the State Registrar of the Texas and Department of State Health Services. She has also received her Master Registrar Certification presented by Texas Vital Statistics and Department of State Health Services in Austin and most recently was selected by Region VI as a nominee for County Clerk of the Year for the State of Texas. Price has also served three years on the Wood County Child Welfare and Protection Board as the Welfare Board’s secretary-treasurer and is compassionate in assisting the needs of foster children in Wood County.
During her time in office she has worked on the ongoing completion of a real property records project that allows the public to view records online from the comfort of their home or office. This site can be viewed at www.countygovernmentrecords.com.
“I have always felt that the county clerk’s office is the hub of county government being that our doors are open to the public for research, filing and the source of all records that are maintained through this office; from real property records, birth, death, marriage, criminal, civil, probate, financial reporting, records management and retention, commissioner court proceedings, as ex-officio of the commissioner’s court and more,” Price said. “I have been blessed with a wonderful staff that knows how very important it is to me that my office serves the public in a helpful and friendly atmosphere. It is my priority to maintain Wood County’s records to the best of my ability ensuring the preservation of all records for future generations, as this is the history of our county.
“I take pride in serving the citizens of Wood County and would consider it an honor and privilege to receive your continued support in re-electing me as your Wood County Clerk.”
Price is the daughter of Glenn Robinson and the late June Robinson, former Wood County Treasurer.
