Mark Staples announces run for Anderson County Clerk



Staples said, if elected, his goal is to “be as efficient as possible with the resources provided to the office” and to keep up with the ever-changing technology without hindering customer service.

“There is a big change coming in 2015, when we will be required to go paperless,” he explained. “It is important that the transition is as smooth as possible.

“2015 also is the start of the next legislative session, which means another set of changes for the county clerk's office.”

Staples and his wife of 10 years, Jenny, have two children — Tori, 7, and Trevin, 5, who attend Neches schools. His mother, Cayuga graduate Janice Staples, is the Anderson County District Clerk and his siblings — a brother and a sister, both live in Anderson County.

Staples and his family attend Westwood Baptist Church, where he sings in the choir.
