McGill runs for fourth term

- Incumbent Elizabeth McGIll, better known as Liz, is running for her fourth term as county clerk.

"I am the current county clerk and I've been in this office since 2001," stated McGill.

This is the first time in eight years McGill has faced opposition.

"This is a challenge this time," said McGill.

In 2005, McGill oversaw the real estate section switching from paper to electronic. She feels she will be needed for another term as the clerk's office begins another transition.

"Starting in January 2015, the civil probate section will have to be done all electronic fillings…paper will no longer be accepted," McGill said.

The benefit of e-filling is huge said McGill.

"For the counts, it's going to be much easier because you won't have to transmit those files over there," continued McGill.

A favorite project of McGill's is the state-mandated restoration project.

"We have started the restoration of books that has been mandated that anything prior to 1950 and especially the hand-written books have to be presented," explained McGill.

McGill said voters should care who's the county clerk for one simple reason.

"Because this office affects people from the time of their birth to the time of their death," finished McGill.

McGill feels she is the most qualified and has the required certifications to succeed in a fourth term as county clerk.
