Jennifer Hernandez_Court Clerk

Jennifer Hernandez is running for Clerk because she believes that Douglas County needs fresh voices and diverse leadership. Simply put, the status is not quo.



Residents deserve the cost- and time-savings benefits of an enhanced efficiencies system.


Hire the best and brightest, regardless of partisan politics.


Local government should work for all.

Meet Jennifer

Jennifer Hernandez is an author, data analyst, volunteer, domestic violence advocate, and mom. An Omaha resident of almost a decade, she is a member of the local creative arts community and has worked with several small businesses using data to increase their productivity and revenue.

Jennifer has been on the other side of the Clerk's desk, representing herself in custody issues, and wants to use her experience with process improvement to simplify procedures. With an increasing number of people representing themselves in court it is essential they have the tools they need. A Korean-American woman, she’s seen the effects of discrimination and bias and wants to provide better public service to the people of Douglas County.
