Meet Mary Louise

Born and raised in Tarrant County, Mary Louise has served our communities her whole life. Coming from a tightknit military family in Fort Worth, Mary Louise learned the principles of faith, hard work, and the importance of giving back.

To this day, Mary Louise serves our families inside the Courthouse and out. Not only does she take her work as a government servant seriously, but she gives back to community organizations and church groups and encourages her team members to join her whenever possible.

She came through local schools and went on to the University of Texas at Arlington and graduated with honors. Initially a young entrepreneur working with businesses and non-profits, Mary Louise successfully transitioned from the private sector to public service. She served on the Tarrant County Sheriff’s command staff for eight years before being sworn in as County Clerk on January 1, 2011.

Two Texas governors have taken notice of Mary Louise’s work ethic and commitment to excellence. Then Governor Rick Perry appointed her to the Board of Trustees of the Texas County and District Retirement System, and she was recently reappointed by Governor Greg Abbott.

Mary Louise has served on the board of the Downtown Fort Worth Rotary, chaired the Tarrant County Business Disaster Recovery Committee, served as Co-Chair to Tarrant County E-Government Committee, and is a current member of the State Bar of Texas Grievance Committee, District 7.
