Following Tuesday’s election results, Morrow County will have a new Clerk of Courts beginning next year as Kim Bood defeated the incumbent Clerk Vanessa Mills.

Bood received 51 percent of the votes cast in the March 15 primary election.

“Thank you Morrow County for the vote of confidence,” Bood said in victory. “I will not let you down. A huge thanks to my campaign team for the long hours and many miles we covered. I am honored to have been been elected.”

Aditionally, voters chose John Hinton to take the place of retiring Morrow County Sheriff Steve Brennemen. Hinton defeated Tom Cronenwett by a count of 6090 to 2004.

“I’d like to congratulate my colleague, John Hinton on winning the Republic nomination for Sheriff,” Cronenwett sated. “It is a victory well won, and the will of the good people of Morrow County. I also want to pledge my support and respect as a fellow law enforcement officer. It’s been an interesting race and John has been a worthy opponent.”

In the lone incumbent re-election of the March 15 race, Charles Howland was voted to remain the Morrow County Prosecutor. Howland garnered 58 percent of the votes cast in the race and defeated Andrew Wick by a count of 4371 to 3143.

“While the outcome isn’t what I wanted, I wish to thank the voters for voting in such high numbers and thank those who helped me during my campaign,” Wick said. “I remain committed to bettering and being involved in the county in any way I am able.”
