Editor’s note: Answering The Purcell Register’s five questions this week is McClain County Court Clerk Kristel Gray.
Q: How long have you worked in the court clerk’s office?
A: I started in Associate Judge Noah Ewing’s office in January of 1996. So the short answer is 26 years at the Court Clerk’s office.
Q: What got you interested in being court clerk?
A: My mom, Joyce Mosely, ran for Court Clerk in 1956 and beat the incumbent, a man. She was 26 when she ran for office and in those days and times, that was unheard of. I was raised in this courthouse. That started the process of me wanting to follow in my mother’s footsteps.
Q: Are you able to leave the office at the office at the end of the day?
A: Most days I am able to leave the office at the end of the day. I have had several late nights and early mornings with jury trials over the years. I feel like physically I leave at the end of the day, but I feel like my job is always in the back of my mind.
Q: What is the best part of your job?
A: The best part of my job is the people I work with every day. We all try to help each other out as much as possible and to help the public that needs assistance to the best of our ability. Also, this office is my second home and my second family.
Q: What is something most people don’t know about you?
A: I don’t know that there is much people don’t know about me. I love to garden and take care of my chickens and to just hang out at home on the deck with my family.
