Tom Green County Commissioners Recognize New District Clerk
SAN ANGELO, TX – Tom Green County Commissioners Tuesday morning recognized Chief Deputy District Clerk Anthony Joseph Monico as District Clerk replacing Sheri Woodfin who submitted her resignation after serving 20 years in the position.
Monico was appointed District Clerk by the District Judges.
According to the Texas Association of Counties, the district clerk performs the duties assigned by the Texas Constitution as registrar, recorder and custodian of all court pleadings, instruments and papers that are part of any legal cause of action in the district courts.
The district clerk also serves as clerk and custodian of all records for the District Courts, indexes and secures all court records, collects filing fees, and handles funds held in litigation and money awarded to minors, and coordinates the jury panel selection process.
As we reported on Dec. 17, 2019, current District Clerk Sheri Woodfin announced her resignation after serving 20 years with the county.
District Clerks in Texas are elected officials and serve four year terms.
Monico told commissioners, "I'm going to do my best. I'm going to follow (Woodfin's) example."
Monico has been the Chief Deputy District Clerk since Oct. 2019. He was a Deputy District Clerk since Aug. 2006.
