I would like to address the upcoming primary for Clerk of Court. it seams as though there is a bit of mud slinging coming down the pipe against Fred Hatley, our present Clerk. I have known Hatley for quite a number of years, he is a true professional in every way of life in all the years I have known him. Although his competition in the upcoming primary seems to want to tarnish his good name, I’ve yet to see one thing, in writing, that anything he has supposedly said or done inappropriately that would bring dishonor to himself or the position he now holds. Fred is not a backstabber, he is a face-to-face good man and is probably one of the best Clerks Lincoln County has ever had. A vote for Fred Hatley is a vote for Lincoln County.
