Deborah Peacock

Parker County has been home for my family since 1998 and I have served as the Precinct 405 Chair since 2015.   Brian and I have been married for 35 years and believe community involvement is crucial.   As a team member of Clark Real Estate Group, I serve others as Realtor to make home ownership a reality. We also serve others as members of Trinity Bible Church, Willow Park.  We serve and support Weatherford ISD in all aspects.  My husband is serving his second term as a Board of Trustees for WISD. 
Some of my local involvement for the Republican Party is attending the PCRP monthly meetings, conducting the Precinct Convention, recruiting volunteers and voters, serving as the election judge and serving as an officer for the Bush Legacy Republican Women.  On a State level, I am a member of the Texas Federation of Republican Women and a Grassroots Club Member. 
Supporting Republican conservation ideas and principles, my challenge is to stay the course registering voters, making sure every citizen is engaged in our election process, and raise the turnout of the ever-growing Republican Party.  As a Precinct Chair, I have witnessed great growth and my ultimate goal is to improve our Republican voter turnout percentage.
