ENDORSEMENT LETTERS: Circuit Court Clerk's race

(Continued)

GLASGOW —

Fields should be re-elected clerk

Dear Editor,

This November I will have the opportunity to vote for the first time.

My grandfather is a veteran of World War II. I have been attending the Veterans Day dinners for as long as I can remember. These are the men who ensured us our right to vote. I have also attended more pancake breakfasts than you could count. I have seen many campaigns and met many potential candidates for election in our community, which makes me very excited to be able to finally participate in an election. I am hoping to convince more citizens to fulfill their obligation to vote.

One of the candidates I support fully is Krissie Coe Fields. Seeing her service in the Barren County Courthouse has inspired me. The efforts she has made as Barren County Circuit Court Clerk, a former member of Glasgow City Council, and within the community, church, and charitable organizations such as BRAWA, has shown me what dedication and hard work can accomplish.

As busy as Fields is with her own duties, she has still taken time out of her busy schedule more times than I could count to help me. As a young student interested in law and the duties of the courthouse, she has guided me and been a wonderful mentor. I will be forever grateful to her for the kindness she has shown me.

Remember to vote on Nov. 6 and please vote for Krissie Coe Fields for circuit clerk.
