Melissa is a proactive, hardworking, honest individual that has proven
she has what it takes to successfully lead the Clerk of Court’s office.
As the official records keeper of St. Tammany Parish, accuracy, efficiency,
and quality are of the utmost importance. The Clerk of Court’s office is a
fee-for-service agency and does not receive taxpayer funds to operate. Melissa takes pride in operating the Clerk’s office like a business, seeking out every opportunity for improvement.
“I wanted this job because I knew that I could make a difference.
I knew that I could make it better for the public
and for our deputy clerks.”

Very pleased to have received this Support post today!
Friends! I am extremely excited that Melissa Henry decided to run for
Clerk of Court. She will be an exceptional Clerk. She was hired as
a regular Deputy Clerk in the Recording Department (Real Estate Documents) 4
years ago from a professional employment agency. I didn't know her at
all. With her prior experience as an owner of a Mortgage Lending Firm and
her positive personality, she took to the work so quickly that we realized we
had a real "gem" of an employee in her.
We cross-trained Melissa to do many functions in the Recording Department, including learning about our Archives. When Jeanne Roques, the Land Records Department Head, told us that she would be retiring in a couple of years, we transferred Melissa to that department and she learned about Mortgage Certificates and Cancellations and researching of the ownership records. A little over a year ago, we announced Jeanne's retirement and opened up the management position for applications. Melissa went through the process along with other applicants but it was clear that she would be a perfect fit with our management team.
To her credit, Melissa Henry is also a Notary Public, which gives her a broad spectrum of experience with legal documents. She has energized our office and has been a breath of fresh air! She is honest, professional and loves public service. She will carry on the legacy of providing excellent customer service to all who use the Clerks office. I believe that is one thing that truly sets our office apart for all other agencies.
Vote for Melissa.com is her campaign website. She has a facebook page and if you are on fb, I'd appreciate it if you would "like her" on fb and send it to your friends. Melissa needs yard sign locations, and if you would, please send her a campaign donation! Any amount would be appreciated.
Melissa has my full support in this race. She is by far the best candidate! Please help her win!
Malise — with Melissa Henry.
