Jan. 1, 2006 -- Cheryl Fulcher announced Friday her candidacy for Hopkins County treasurer in the March 9 Republican Party primary election.
Fulcher is coordinator for the Eighth Judicial District court. She has more than 25 years experience working in and with all phases of county government.
"If elected, I plan to bring my coordinating skills to the office of county treasurer by effectively working with all the county offices in their collection and disbursement of funds," she said.
Fulcher also said she would work to move the duties from the auditor's office that, by Texas Local Government Code, belongs in the treasurer's office to restore checks and balances necessary when dealing with taxpayers' money.
"I want to be an active participant with the commissioners court, assisting and advising them regarding county financial matters," Fulcher said.
A 28-year resident of Hopkins County, her husband is Gordon "Lurch" Fulcher, a retired Sulphur Springs police officer and now a security officer with Sulphur Springs Independent School District. They have one son, Evan, who is a fourth grade student at Travis Elementary School.
