Felicia Shelton was appointed County Clerk on Monday, January 3. Members of the Hart County Fiscal Court, retiring County Clerk Lisa Hensley Sanders, and Shelton’s friends and family were present during her appointment.

Although her appointment as County Clerk is new, Shelton is not new to the Hart County Clerk’s Office. She began working at the Clerk’s Office in 2000 at the age of eighteen, going on nineteen, under Doris Crain as a Deputy Clerk. She then continued on under Lisa Hensley Sanders in 2003 when Doris Crain passed away.

Shelton said of Sanders, “She is like a second mother to me.”

Sanders stated that she is looking forward to spending time with her family during retirement and that she wishes Shelton the best as the new County Clerk.

Shelton would like the county residents to know that the County Clerk’s office will once again be open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 12 noon.
