The position of DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder of Deeds has been held and honorably served by Sharon Holmes for the past 24 years. Holmes will not seek re-election in 2010.
Who she will pass the torch to was the subject Republican hopefuls John Acardo and Joe Simons debated at the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Candidate Forum held at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb. Democrat Jim Luebke awaits the winner between Acardo and Simons (in the Feb. 2, 2010 Primary Election) in the General Election.
The forum featured local candidates in contested races for DeKalb County States Attorney, DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder, and for Judge in the 16th Judicial District.
Roger Scott, current and longtime DeKalb County Sheriff was to debate Wes Hoadley, his opponent in the Republican primary. Hoadley was unable to attend the forum. When asked how he stood out from his opponent, Scott replied, “Well to begin with, [Hoadley] isn’t here.”
