Wednesday, July 4, 2018

The first thing I see when I pull into Craig Harrison’s driveway is the Beatles bumper sticker on his pickup. The second thing is yard art.

Harrison was hired as deputy clerk of Kent County in 1999. When the county clerk resigned in 2004, Harrison was appointed by the county commission to fill the unexpired term. In November 2004, he won election to the position, campaigning along the rural mail delivery routes, and has served as the Kent County and Texas 39th Judicial District clerk ever since.
