HILLSVILLE — Gerald Goad has filed to run for the position of Carroll County’s next Circuit Court Clerk in this year’s general election.
Goad is running as a Democrat, and one party leader said this the first time a Democrat has run for court clerk in Carroll in nearly 30 years. Carolyn Honeycutt, a Republican, held the office for more than 23 years before stepping down in February.
Republican contenders B.P. “Phil” Hawks and Ronald L. Newman are seeking their party’s nomination.
