Kelly Kimmel announced this week her candidacy for the Republican nomination for the office of Hopkins County district clerk.

“I am proud to announce my candidacy for the office of district Clerk,” Kimmel said. “My experience includes four years in the Van Zandt County district clerk’s office, where I was a deputy clerk maintaining records for civil and family cases.  I was a certified agent for the US Passport Office, and held clearance to work within the online records of the Attorney General’s child support division.”

Kimmel is  currently employed with the law firm of Smith McDowell and Ginn, where she has been a legal assistant for the past year. 

“Although my residency in Hopkins County has not been for a lifetime, I have come to love this community and am a member of the North East Texas Choral Society,” she said. “This is a wonderful place to live and work. I am excited about serving in the district clerk’s office, where my goals include incorporating e-filing to reduce processing time and storage of paper files, which is a growing concern, and scanning of old files to completely eliminate the need for additional storage resulting in a savings for the county.”

Kelly is married to sheriff’s officer Walt Kimmel; they have four children and three grandchildren between them: Jeriod Townsend of Tyler, Staff Sgt. Joshua Townsend of Dover, Del., Kimberly and husband, Chasen McCormack, of Sulphur Springs and Tommy Kimmel of Sulphur Springs; and grandchildren Raydon, Miley and Kinsley McCormack. 

The Kimmels are members of Lake Fork Baptist Church.
