Due to the recent election of Joseph Dierdorf as Clay County Auditor and the resignation of Carolyn Girton as the Clay County Democratic Party Treasurer, a party caucus has been announced by Chairperson Tom Arthur.
Precinct committee chairpersons will meet to elect people to fill those positions at 3 p.m. Dec. 14 in the Brazil City Hall Council Chambers.
Anyone interested in seeking the office of Clay County Recorder needs to contact Arthur at 443-0115 to obtain a Declaration of Candidacy Form (Indiana Form: CEB-5). Forms may also be obtained from the Clay County Election Office on the second floor of the courthouse.
All forms must be returned to Arthur by 3 p.m. Dec. 11 (72 hours before the time of the caucus, per Indiana Election Code 3-13-11-7).
Anyone seeking the office of Clay County Democratic Party Treasurer may run from the floor of the caucus on Dec. 14.
