Augusta County: Carol Brydge wins GOP nod for Clerk of Court special election

By Lynn R. Mitchell

In a specially-called Republican mass meeting Thursday night, Carol Brydge won the party’s nomination to run in the Clerk of Court special election on March 31.

Mrs. Brydge was appointed to the position in December after former Clerk John B. Davis stepped aside one year before the end of his term. The special election is required by state law, and the general election will be held in November.

On Friday Mrs. Brydge thanked her supporters:

Thanks to all who braved the cold and came out to support me at the Republican Mass Meeting. I received the republican nomination. Now I need your support at the special election on March 31.

For background see Augusta County Mass Meeting Thursday for Clerk of Court, Carol Brydge to seek nomination.
