New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 12, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas GOODFORYOU Photo submitted Danny Scheel, left, presents a certificate to Linnell Hinojosa, honoring her for 30 years of service in the county clerk's office. Hinojosa recognized for 30 years of service Comal County Elections Coordinator Linnell Hinojosa was recently recognized for 30 years working in the county clerk’s office. County Judge Danny Scheel presented her with a certificate and a calculator. Hinojosa thanked the county for the recognition — and for the job she’s held so long. “It’s been a great experience,” she said. When Hinojosa started with the county in 1975, she was one of four employees in the county clerk’s office. “Like we all did, I did a little bit of everything. You had to know how to fill in for each other,” Hinojosa said. “It was a very small office compared to how it has grown now.” In 1979, Hinojosa moved into the elections office, which then used paper ballots. Later that year, they started using punch cards. In 1991, the county went to the optical-scan ballots it uses now. Two years ago, it began introducing computerized, “touch-screen” voting. “I’ve stayed all these years because I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people,” Hinojosa said.
