Parties to choose Cole County circuit clerk candidates
Thursday, May 24, 2012
Cole County Democrats should know tonight who their candidate will be in the Nov. 6 election to complete the last two years of resigned Circuit Clerk Brenda Umstattd’s unfinished term.
New Circuit Clerk Marilue Hemmel has the job only on a temporary basis — through the beginning of next year — because Umstattd’s resignation last month came with enough time for voters to fill the post with a special election in November.
“We more than likely will be vetting candidates in July,” Cole County Republican Chairman Ron Fitzwater said.
