Some accomplished politician climbing the ladder of political success that feels the mass of taxpayers own them a living because of their political association. Maybe someone who has never raised a family in McNairy County or lived outside the realm of their parents. But than again that office does not require anyone with a degree. High School, or GED. 18 years of age and you are ready to go.
But since i see Brown,should that be Tina Brown? if so she would have my VOTE.

Both Tina Brown and Gina Brown are interested. Tammy Dillon works at State Farm and is in fct a county commissioner.

Yes I know those three ladies,and yes they are good people.

Will they let that be like a primary,or will each party nominate one person?

It really is a shame when three good people want the same office. And they all three are qualified. I would think Kevin Lipford would be least qualified as his Dad did not run that office in a very professional style. I think Tina Brown could help Mcnairy County the most. Tina is business minded along with legal process. Again let me say all three are good people,well all 4 just that Lipford is not as qualified.He needs to keep trucking. Lipford thought he should have had the Election Comm just because he was a democrat,and the democrats had controlled Nashville so long,,Well it has changed.

I think Lipford will have a hard time winning given his partisan behavior, if the democrats nominate him. Romney,Rich and Gresham will be at the top of the ticket and will carry McNairy with no problem come November. So i dont t think putting a partisan democrat at the bottom will help the democrats keep this office. It will have to be someone thats bi partisan in nature if the democrats want to keep that office.

If Tina and Gina are both running, i think they are the 2 most qualified. They both have legal educations from good law schools and business experience. Both would be very strong candidates. Tina worked for Terry Abernathy and builds houses. Gina was Chairman of the Law Committee and on the Budget committee. She also works in a financial office. I really like both of them and that office needs someone with a law background, not another good ole boy. I don't think the other 2 are truly qualified. Just my opinion. I've heard that office has been poorly ran.

Truth is truth and i agree with you. Women of this background are what we need leading McNairy County.
I really think they would look above the good ole boy system and look into the inter bowels of how McNairy County and Gov should operate.
But this is about who is the person for the vaccated office of Circuit Court Clerk.

I read what Just Saying posted,yes he makes sense,but this is what McNairy County citizens deserve,,,The Best.

who="Support"]Does being a attorney qualify a person to go behind the doors,and counter to dig in court records as they please? or can regular citizens do that also? I thought that was one of the peoples office. It is really out of hand how non-attorney clients are treated inside and by that office.

Kevin lipford has already quit his job to run and the republicans will decide on sept 8th. Tammy dillon and Byron Maxedon are asking for that position on the Republican end.They are looking for other candidates to announce their intentions.

Not yet, one ot them needs to run or else the office will continue to be ran by people with no legal or business skills. I think Gina Brown has her eye on a job in the Courthouse. Perhaps Tina will run.

Is there no one in that office to fill his position? Who would assume his role if he were to have to take a leave for some reason???? just wondering

Interested,that is a perk of being elected to office. You may take time off to campaign for another office and still be paid.

However i think they have a Deputy Clerk. that person would oversee operations of that office while the elected clerk was out. I guess the question is how long a leave could they take?

So why doesnt the deputy clerk fill the remainder of the term of Mr. Brook's office? Woudnt this be the most logical solution or is this another "good ole boy" deal! ho is the Deputy Clerk???

Interested,you may have a point.After all he quit the position.

Use to be if the sheriff was out the town corner took his place,now we don't have a corner we have medical examiner.

You may be correct, that the good ole boys are over stepping. You are correct why have a replacement in place if you arent going to use them,you have a Vice Mayor for county and city that to step in?????

18-1-401. Deputy filling vacancy.

In case of the death of any clerk of a court, the clerk's deputy holds the office until the vacancy is filled by appointment or election, as the case may be.

HISTORY: Code 1858, 334 (deriv. Acts 1794, ch. 1, 72); Shan., 410; Code 1932, 660; T.C.A.(orig. ed.), 18-125.

Looks like good ole boy in action.

Does that give a clue as to what type County Mayor Mr.Brooks will be??

Maybe he did? But should he have pushed for the Deputy Clerk to take his position? Is that sorta like passing the buck? Who appoints the Deputy Clerk?
