In June of 2014, she accepted the position of Chief Deputy Clerk and six and half years later, will now serve as County Clerk. She and her husband, Chad, are the proud parents of Christian Fogg, a junior at Rockwall High School.

Fogg was appointed to server Miller’s unexpired term which will run through December 31, 2022, and she will be sworn in on Jan. 1, 2021.

“I am honored and humbled that Shelli suggested that the Court choose me as her successor and that the Court chose to appoint me for this position. I am certain that I can fulfill the duties of this position and serve the residents of Rockwall County,” Fogg said.
