Barbara Pousson has been the clerk of Sarpy County’s County Court for the past 12 years.

The Papillion resident said she is interested in becoming clerk of the Sarpy County District Court.

She has filed in the Republican primary for the position, where she will face incumbent clerk, Carol Kremer, who is seeking a fourth consecutive term. Only one Republican will advance through the primary election.

Pousson said she believes it is the right time for her to bring to the District Court all of her experience at the county court introducing technology.

“I feel I’m ready for the challenge,” she said. “It’s an exciting time for the courts because there’s a lot of technology going on, and I feel the County Court is on the cutting edge of that. We use a lot of technology here in County Court.”

This is Pousson’s first attempt at being elected to the District Court post, and it is the first primary challenge to Kremer since 2002 when she was first elected.

The position of clerk of the County Court is a state administrative position, so she does not have to resign her current position to run for office.

Pousson said she has spent the past 22 years in the field of court management.

She has lived in Papillion for the past 14 years, is a native of Osceola and is graduate of Wayne State College.
