Johnson County Clerk, Becky Ivey, is pleased to announce her 3rd term candidacy for Johnson County Clerk in the 2018 election on the Republican ballot. Ivey’s commitment to her office as County Clerk began in 2010. For the past 28 years, Ivey has served as the Commissioners Court Clerk and held many other County office positions, including working for the District Attorney and Tax Office. Ivey is a lifelong resident of Johnson County and has lived in Cleburne, Rio Vista and Burleson. She is married to David Ivey and has two children. They are active members of Northpointe Baptist Church in Burleson, Texas..
Ivey’s experience as County Clerk includes working directly with the County Judge, County Commissioners, Sheriff, County Court at Law Judges, County Attorney and other elected officials. Moreover, Ivey says her most valuable experience comes from serving the Johnson County public. During Ivey’s two consecutive terms as County Clerk, she earned many accolades for exceptional service from County officials and the public. Additionally, for five consecutive years Ivey received the Texas Department of State Health Services 5 Star Award for Excellence in Vital Registration in the State of Texas.
Currently, Ivey manages a staff across three offices, six departments and 42 employees consisting of Land Records, Vitals, Indexing, Civil Court, Criminal Court and Misdemeanor Processing/Collections.
During Ivey’s terms, she successfully implemented many improvements that strengthened operational efficiency and service to the public, including:
Digitizing land records from 1854 to the present and making them available to the public via the Internet
Establishing a new land records recording and imaging system and making those images available to the public via the Internet
Improving e-recording processes and increasing recording documents from 30% to 65% to save time and postage and making those documents available to the public via the Internet
Completing records preservation projects such as probate records from 1854 to 1950, Handwritten Commissioner Court Minutes back to 1854, and various Birth and Death records between 1885 and 1928
Installing a new Commissioners Court software package making Commissioners Court Minutes searchable online
Strengthening efficiency in the Burleson office by providing a separate clerk for passport applications, marriage licenses and assumed names
Installing a public access workstation in the Burleson office for researching deeds and land record information, which will expand as services and space become available
Expediting the file and return of marriage license for military personnel and others in the Burleson office
Ivey said, “I understand the importance of the duties of maintaining the integrity of the records held by the County Clerk’s office and will continue the excellent service we provide to our citizens. My plan is to continue the expansion of the Burleson office, implement the upcoming 2018 mandatory electronic filing for criminal cases and continue to design innovative ways to improve the daily operation of the office. We are in the middle of a five-year records preservation project. A lot of the records held by our office are permanent records, some of which are historical as declared by the State Archives Commission. I feel it is our responsibility to preserve such records to the best of our ability. Johnson County has a rich history and as a 5th generation resident, I have a passion in what I do. Feeling there is more to accomplish, I look forward to the opportunity and consider it a privilege to continue to serve the citizens of Johnson County.”
