Barbara Moss announced her candidacy Monday for the office of Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1, in the March Republican Primary Election.


In making the announcement, Moss said she has been chief clerk in the office for the past 10 years.

“I feel that I am very well qualified for the job since I have 25 years experience as a Hopkins County employee, with the last 10 years of that as the chief court clerk for the justice court for which I am seeking election,” Moss said. “In the addition to the 10 years justice court experience, I also have 15 years experience in the Hopkins County auditor's office.

“My training for this position is very good. I have over 200 hours class work in justice court law and procedure, and am certified in civil court proceedings by the Texas Justice Court Training Center. Also, I have 60 hours training as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for the district court,” she continued. “I currently am working for the present Justice of the Peace Yvonne King, and have learned from the best how to handle the court situations that may arise.”

Moss is a long-time Hopkins County resident and graduate of Miller Grove High School. She is married to Jerry Moss, a retired Baptist pastor. Her children are Teffany and Corey Burgin of Sulphur Springs, Jennifer and Kevin Seaton of Mount Vernon and the late Eric Vanginault. She also has six grandchildren.

“I feel that I am very well qualified for the position of Justice of the Peace Precinct 1, and feel that I have proven myself through the years to be a trusted chief clerk with the desire and integrity to carry on the tradition of high standards and integrity set by our present judge, Yvonne King,” Mrs. Moss concluded.
