*KJAS News allows a political candidate for local office the opportunity to make a political statement. The following is that of Holly Thomas, candidate for Jasper County Clerk:
Hello, my name is Holly Thomas and I’m pleased to announce that I am running for the position of Jasper County Clerk.
I have lived in Jasper all my life, born and raised in the Beech Grove community. I’ve been married to John Thomas for 38 years. We have a daughter, Emily and son-in-law Jake Dufner, a son, Kolt Thomas and fiance’ Cassidy Prewitt and one grandson Reid Dufner.
I have had the privilege of working as a Deputy Clerk over the past 8 plus years with the current County Clerk, Debbie Newman. I truly enjoy my job and the ladies I work with, we are a team. I believe I have gained valuable knowledge and experience over the last several years in the County Clerk’s Office that will benefit me in filling the position as County Clerk in serving the wonderful people of Jasper County.
I would greatly appreciate your consideration in the upcoming election. Thank you, Holly
