On Thursday, February 19, 2015, a specially-called mass meeting will be held for Augusta County Clerk of Court at 6:00 p.m. to determine the Republican nominee to run in the special election to be held on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. THIS MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE AUGUSTA COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT IN STAUNTON, not at the Government Center.
On December 19, 2014, Carol Brydge was sworn in as Clerk of Court after being appointed to fill the unexpired term of office of former Clerk of Court John B. Davis. She will be seeking the Republican nomination to run in the March Special Election.

As most of you know I was appointed (by law) as Clerk of the Augusta County Circuit Court to fulfill the unexpired term of office of John B. Davis. I was sworn in as Clerk on December 19, 2014. The law requires that a special election must be held for this office. In my situation the special election will take place on March 31, 2015.
I plan to seek the Republican Party nomination at a Mass Meeting to be held this Thursday night, February 19, 2015 at the Augusta County Circuit Court. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the mass meeting will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m.
Here is where I need YOUR SUPPORT. In order for me to secure the nomination to run on March 31, I need to have as many supporters as possible to show up for this mass meeting to vote for me. You must present a picture I.D. and be willing to sign a statement of “intent” that you will support the Republican candidate (hopefully me!).
It is very possible that others may be seeking this office as well Thursday night and it will all come down to whomever has the most votes. I have worked in the Clerk’s Office for 26 years and am knowledgeable in every division of this Office. Since January 2, I have served as the people’s Clerk of Court. I am a working Clerk and would like to continue to serve the public in this capacity. I would appreciate you braving the cold on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2015 AT 6:00 P.M. – AUGUSTA COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT, 1 E JOHNSON STREET, STAUNTON, VA . REMEMBER, DOORS WILL CLOSE AT 7:00 P.M. Thank you my friends.
