Samantha Conner running for county clerk

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

Until recently, Samantha Conner had not given the world of politics much thought.

But after seeing Ann Bradshaw's run for Mayor of Brazil, the 23-year-old lifelong Clay County resident was inspired.

She was inspired enough to throw her hat in the ring.

"I want to get more involved in politics," Conner told The Brazil Times.

Conner, a Democrat, is running for Clerk of the Circuit Court. She has never ran for political office before.

"I didn't want to do anything else," Conner said of running for the position.

Conner is running against Cathleen M. Bales (Democrat) and Victoria J. Wheeler (Republican).

She filed for candidacy just before the deadline this year.

"I just want to help the community," she said.

She is married to Tim Conner.
