What improvements do you suggest to the County Information Systems to better facilitate the District Clerk's duties?

Because the responsibilities of the district clerk are mostly administrative, do you think that clerks should be appointed rather than elected? Please explain.

Each department of the District Clerk’s office uses different, “home-made,” DOS-based software. We’ve taken e-filed pleadings since 2003, wherein we must enter much of the information manually. A new, modern, county-wide case management system will enable our accepting e-filed documents as well as its identifying data directly into our data base. Additionally, we will be able to electronically issue service documents, notices of hearings, & manage dockets, while allowing online records access
Texas Constitution created elected offices to insure a balance of powers, so that no one officer would have the power to act in a manner contrary to the law that would result in unfair benefits to one party over another. Thus, the legislature enacts laws, the judiciary settles matters according to both civil and criminal law, sheriffs & constables enforce the law, district attorneys prosecute those who disobey the law, and clerks of the court accept all pleadings to insure true & correct records
