When a paralegal runs for public office, this Legal Liaison takes notice. Here at The Liaison Lowdown, we are proud to endorse a fellow MUW Paralegal Alumna, Kim Brown Hood, in her candidacy for Clay County Circuit Clerk.
Kim stands strong against a list of opponents all vying for the Circuit Clerk position. Unlike the majority of her rivals, Kim has an impressive and long-standing career that qualifies her not only with education but also with the needed experience to tackle the job.
As a lifelong resident of West Point and Clay County, Kim graduated with honors from West Point High School in 1991 and then received her BS in Paralegal Studies from MUW in 1995. Kim has loyally served the 16th Circuit District, which includes Clay, Lowndes, Noxubee, and Oktibbeha Counties, for 22 years. During this time, Kim has excelled as a paralegal for the District Attorney's office, and her leadership abilities led her to become a Victim Assistance Coordinator and the current Drug Court Administrator for our district. She engages in community associations and activities including serving on the Paralegal Advisory Board at MUW and is a past member of the SKW Family Services Child Advocacy Center Multi-Disciplinary Task Force as well as a past board member of ARC of Clay County.
This Liaison isn't sure what skills, education, or background qualify any of the other candidates, nor are we aware of any current or past organization affiliations that demonstrate their dedication to our community. None of the other candidates have offered any such information, so we have no choice but to assume they have none.
Without a doubt, Kim Brown Hood stands out amongst the other candidates running for Clay County Circuit Clerk. This Legal Liaison vehemently believes she is the only qualified candidate for the job, and we urge you to vote for Kim Brown Hood, a candidate worthy of The Liaison Lowdown Limelight.
