Wright wins on Republican ballot for clerk
The County Clerk race has moved into the next stage, with Republican Fayrene Wright having defeated her two opponents.

Now the race is between her and Democrat Teresa K. Fielder, who had no opposition in the primary.

Wright won the race by 42.7 percent of the 2,871 votes cast. Second was Karen S. Bowman, with 31.63 percent of the votes. Third was Tom Compton, with 24.94 percent of the vote.

Wright thanked the voters for their support and her volunteers and family members for their efforts.

"I think the voters have an excellent choice" between herself and Fielder, she said.

She said she plans to continue focusing on being an excellent steward of the taxpayer's money, having a good working relationship with the county board and having a positive work environment.

Bowman did not immediately return a call for comment.

"I am disappointed, but I plan to get the boat dock in the river and give everyone an invite to go fishing," Compton said. He remains as a member of the Hutsonville Park Board.
