Even though there is no election this November, new Jennings County election clerk Brenda King has plenty to do these days, such as inputting new voter registration information into the statewide registry.
Brenda King plans to be ready for January 8, 2014.
That date is the first day that candidates for the 2014 election can officially file their paperwork, and King, the new Jennings County election deputy, assures everyone she will be ready to roll.
The former co-owner of King Communications says she helped train the new staff there and then started looking for a new job. She saw the ad for the election job in the local newspaper and decided to apply.
Turns out, the job,-with its low tolerance for mistakes and high regard for accuracy-was just what this self-described "borderline compulsive" was looking for.
"I like attention to detail," she readily admits.
In addition, the job also holds another big plus for this local resident. "I love working in this old courthouse," she said.
King answers to JC Clerk Mary Kilgore, who promoted former election clerk Josh Proctor to first deputy in the clerk's office.
According to Proctor, King follows the same mold he fit in. Describing her as apolitical and unbiased toward either party, he predicted, "She'll be fair to everyone."
And if there are any controversies next year, you can be sure King will approach them in a cool and collected manner because as she says, "the facts are the facts."
Since starting work Aug. 26, King says she has been surprised at the number of calls she's already received about the 2014 election. Up for the vote are two top spots-prosecutor and sheriff-as well as clerk, recorder and auditor.
"We've had a lot of interest," she said. " I think it'll be big for the county."
