Republican Julie Jany-Carnahan has released the following statement officially announcing her run for Randolph County circuit clerk, challenging incumbent Sherry Johnson:
“I’m a fourth generation Randolph County resident with the experience and heart to deliver value to taxpayers as their new circuit clerk. The people of Randolph County deserve good government, efficient court administration, friendly customer service and a circuit clerk that works. That’s who I will be.”
Jany-Carnahan has experience in the courthouse starting nine years ago as a Violent Crime Victim’s advocate in the state’s attorney’s office before being hired by Judge Richard Brown as his personal deputy clerk, and is now serving as a deputy clerk in the circuit clerk’s office. It’s her current experience in the circuit clerk’s office that has led her to jump in the race, stating, “I know we can do better. I believe myself and a dedicated group of deputy clerks can deliver more for the taxpayers of Randolph County.”
