Tell us about yourself.
My name is Erin Morgan and I am married to my wonderful husband Garrett Morgan for 15 years and counting. We have 3 beautiful children. Our son Lane is
15, our daughter Cheyenne is 13 and our youngest daughter Teagan is 11.
I have been blessed with great parents and siblings and I am very grateful that once my father retired from the military that my parents decided to make Webster County their home. I graduated from Marshfield High School in 2005 and my class was one of the last classes to attend school in the building that is now the MAC and the first class to attend Shook Elementary when it was first built.
My husband's family has lived in the area for generations. We currently live in the house that my father-in-law grew up in. Family means everything to me and some of the things we enjoy doing as a family are camping, going to the lake and hunting. One of our favorite activities is attending our children's sporting events. I am proud to call Webster County my home.
Why are you the best candidate?
I am the best candidate for Webster County Recorder because I am passionate about Webster County and public service. I have been employed with the county for over 7 years and am currently working for the Webster County Prosecutor. I have successfully worked with a variety of people in and out of the courthouse. I am confident that I have the ability to learn the position quickly. During my time with the county, I have worked at the Road and Bridge Department and I was also a 911 dispatcher. Working at 911 taught me how to remain calm under pressure and while working full time I attended classes and received my EMT license. I believe that my passion for learning and for the people of Webster County will serve me well in the position of Recorder. My motivation and attention to detail will help me in this process.
How has your experience prepared you? I am the mother of 3 children, 2 of which are teenagers and one not far behind. Any parent knows that patience is key when raising children. It has taught me to be patient with others. Working full time with school aged children who also play sports has taught me that my multitasking skills are of the utmost importance in our day to day lives. I will bring those skills to the recorder's office along with my calmness that I learned at 911. A smiling, friendly face goes a long way toward calming down any situation that may arise. While working for the prosecutor and preparing cases I learned that attention to detail can make or break a case. That is a skill that will also help me in the recorder's office. My experiences have prepared me for this position because they taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to and I put 110% into any task put in front of me.
What are your goals for the future?
My goals for the future include working for Webster County and retiring from the county in many years. I am only 35 so I have many years left to serve the county. I look forward to helping my husband get a business up and running and we look forward to buying a house with some land. My favorite goal for the future is to watch my kids grow into wonderful adults and start their lives. No matter how this election turns out, I will continue to serve Webster County in any capacity that she will have me.
