Fields holds off Bryant for Barren County Circuit Clerk

GLASGOW — In what turned out to be a close race, incumbent Circuit Court Clerk Krissie Coe Fields beat out challenger Jill Bryant in her bid for re-election Tuesday.

Fields was surrounded by supporters at Stellar House on Tuesday night as they watched the election results announced on T.V. As the last precinct was announced, Fields was all smiles.

“It’s a victory,” Fields said.

“Great” is the easiest way to sum up her feeling over the results, Fields said. There have been some down moments during the campaign, but she has tried to stay positive. She knew it was going to be a close race, Fields said.

“[Bryant’s campaign] worked very hard,” Fields said. “When someone works that hard, you get results. As hard as they were working, I knew that it’d be a close race.”

Throughout the race, Fields’ daily work in the courthouse motivated her to stay focused and keep going, she said.

“I continued to work throughout my campaign,” Fields said. “It was the individuals that I would see, co-workers and individuals that came into the office, that gave me the motivation, especially, to trudge on. There were just so many people that reached out.”

Little things like text messages and words of prayer meant so much, Fields said.

Krissie’s husband, Tommy Fields, said they always expected to win, but thought the race would stay close. In the end, their hard work paid off, Tommy Fields said.
