The first Democratic candidate for DeKalb County Circuit Court Clerk is making her intentions known.
Nicole Wright told WJLE this week that she intends to seek the Democratic nomination for the office in the May 1, 2018 primary.
“I grew up in the Keltonburg community and have been a life-long resident of DeKalb County. My husband Jeff Wright and I reside in Smithville with our two daughters Jenna, 12, and Lydia, 5. Jeff has been an active member of the Smithville Fire-Rescue Department for over 30 years, and is currently employed by the Murfreesboro Fire- Rescue Department where he serves as the Training Coordinator.”
“I graduated from DeKalb County High School. I began serving the citizens of DeKalb County in 1995 at DeKalb County Ambulance Service as an Emergency Medical Technician. I later worked at the DeKalb Sheriff’s Department as a 911 dispatcher, the City of Smithville Police Department as a police and fire dispatcher, and as a DeKalb E-911 dispatcher. I worked for Circuit Court Clerk Katherine Pack from 2006 to 2011 as a Deputy Clerk. I worked as the office administrator for Jeremy D. Trapp, Attorney from 2011 to August, 2017 where I gained valuable knowledge and experience working in the law. I returned to work for Katherine Pack in the Circuit Court Clerk’s office as a Deputy Clerk in September, 2017.”
“Public service has been at the center of my employment most of my adult life. I have always enjoyed working with and for the citizens of DeKalb County. I am seeking this position because I want to continue the integrity and efficiency this office has worked so hard for during Mrs. Katherine’s reign as clerk. The years of experience that I have under her leadership will allow me to keep this office moving forward providing the best services available for the people of DeKalb County.”
