Dugger announces campaign for second clerk of court term

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Charlottesville Clerk of Circuit Court officially announced her bid for another eight years in the position.

Democrat Llezelle Dugger announced her decision to seek a second term Tuesday at the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library.

Dugger said she has accomplished a lot since winning her first election in 2011, but more work needs to be done.

She said she has been focused on converting records to a digital format and providing great customer service, which were two promises she made when originally running for the position.

Dugger said the Clerk of Circuit Court's office has been digitizing land and court case records, which she hopes to complete before the new courthouse renovations are finished.

Dugger, who has experience as an assistant public defender, said the people of Charlottesville are who make her want to run again.

"I can honestly say in public defender work, and of course in circuit court, where we see people with criminal convictions, they're good people. Made bad choices, bad decisions, but they really are, at their heart, good people. That's really the big reason I want to run," Dugger said.

The primary election is on June 11 and the general election is on Nov. 5.
