The incumbent county clerk is seeking her first election to the office this year.
Monroe County Clerk Nicole Browne filed to keep her seat. She was selected to serve as county clerk in a March 2016 Democratic Party caucus after the former county clerk Linda Robbins resigned mid-term for health reasons. Robbins had endorsed Browne to replace her as part of her resignation letter.
"It has been my honor to serve as the Monroe County clerk," Browne said in a news release Wednesday. "I plan to continue to build on the successes we've had with e-filing, digitization of clerk and court records as well as the strides we've made toward creating a paperless office."
Prior to her role as county clerk Browne served as the office's chief deputy clerk.
According to the news release, Browne was the first candidate to file the necessary paperwork to run for local elected offices in 2018. Candidates interested in running for a number county elected offices, township boards, trustee positions, school board and other local races on the 2018 ballot can now file at the Monroe County Voter Registration Office, 401 W. Seventh St.
Interested candidates have until noon Feb. 9 to file the candidacy paperwork.
