Clay Jenkins has had what some might call a banner year. In his quest for equality, the judge spearheaded the effort to give private employees who contract with the county a better quality of life by raising their hourly wages to that of full-time county employees. He applauded Parkland Hospital when it announced its minimum-wage increase, and he hopes to create a critical mass so every worker in the county makes a living wage. So, he fights for the poor, but he also fights for the children.
Two weeks ago, County Judge Clay Jenkins led a successful effort to change a contract that would have ended in-person visits with jail inmates while the county collected a share of the money a private company made from charging for the video visitation that was to replace it.
Dallas County Judge Clay Lewis Jenkins began his first term in office on January 1, 2011. A first-time public official, Judge Jenkins brings business acumen, legislative experience, and an unparalleled commitment to the office of County Judge. He is the President of Jenkins & Jenkins, a successful law practice with offices in Dallas and Waxahachie.
