Conroe, November 2, Texas – Lifelong Montgomery County resident and longtime county employee, Cynthia Jamieson, has announced her bid for Montgomery County District Clerk as a candidate in the March 6, 2018, Republican Primary Election. During the day on November 1, The Golden Hammer received two anonymous tips that incumbent Barbara Gladden Adamick, who has served since 1997, has decided to retire. (Anonymous tips tend to be less reliable than individuals who identify themselves but ask for confidentiality.) Adamick did not return telephone calls.
Jamieson, who is the Homeland Security Planner and Public Information Officer for the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management, has said she is passionate about bringing positive changes and innovation to the District Clerk’s Office. Jamieson stated, “I felt like there was a need for reform in the District Clerk’s office, and after much research and talking with citizens, I found that many people agreed, it was time for a change. However, I do not want to ignore the legacy of our current District Clerk, Barbara Adamick, but rather continue to build on her already well established department.” Jamieson hopes to implement ideas for innovation, transparency, and efficiency.
The candidate was born and raised in Montgomery County. After graduating from Willis High School in 1996 she attended the University of Houston and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communications – Public Relations. After she graduated from college, Jamieson traveled extensively all over the United States and abroad including Spain, England, France and Mexico.
When Jamieson returned home to be near her family in 2007, Jamieson took a position with Precinct 3 Commissioner Ed Chance as his administrative assistant. She has explained that it was during Hurricane Ike that Jamieson realized she had found her niche as a public servant and loved helping the citizens of Montgomery County.
Jamieson accepted as position as an administrative assistant to the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management in 2013 after Commissioner Chance retired. Jamieson quickly moved up the ranks and was promoted to Community Preparedness Planner.
After several promotions, Jamiesen gained her current position of Homeland Security Planner and Public Information Officer. “In my day to day activities, I work for the citizens of Montgomery County by maintaining public awareness and encouraging preparedness,” Jamiesen said. “I also collaborate with local and regional partners to maintain Emergency Operation Plans and to build relationships that are vital during a disaster. With the devastation and need that Hurricane Harvey has left in its wake, I have had the privilege to help people once again. I am proud to have been a part of the response and recovery efforts that the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has been instrumental in providing.”
Jamieson’s husband Chad works in the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office as the Facilities Supervisor. She noted that “Our two young children ensure that our lives are never dull and are always keeping their mom on her toes.”
Jamiesen has assured voters in the 2018 Republican Primary, “You won’t’ be disappointed.”
