Reader: Keep circuit clerk in office

Published 11:00 pm Friday, November 2, 2012

The voters of Pike County are getting ready to hire the Circuit Court Clerk for Pike County in the election on Tuesday, November 6.

If your choice is between a person with 17 years of experience in the Circuit Court Clerk’s office and a person with zero years of experience in any part of the Alabama court system, whom would you choose?

I am choosing Jamie Scarbrough, our Circuit Court Clerk for the past two years, and who had 15 years of experience on the Clerk’s office staff before she was appointed by the Circuit Court judges when Brenda Peacock retired.

Her opponent should continue working for the Alabama Department of Transportation where he has worked for the past 22 years.

Jamie Scarbrough has asked for our vote and I am voting for Jamie. Please join me in electing Jamie Scarbrough, Circuit Court Clerk on November 6. Thanks.
