Republican caucuses will determine GOP candidate

Lynda Scott introduces herself with a letter to the residents of Otero County:

“I would like to introduce myself: my name is Lynda “Lyn” Scott and I am declaring that I am running for election to the office of Otero Couty Clerk. My husband, Jay, and I live in La Junta and are very happy with the small town culture here. I was raised in a small rural farming community, much like La Junta, in the panhandle of Nebraska, so small town living is my preference. I have lived in Otero County for over 20 year and my husband has lived here his entire life. For the past 18 years, I have worked in the county clerk’s office and I do love my job.”

“The office of county clerk is charged with several different tasks, each one a separate job from the others. In my 18 years, I have learned each one of these tasks and am proficient in each of them. I have in the past and will continue to keep myself aware of any changes that occur in the law. Believe me, they often do change. I will also do my best to see that everyone is treated in a friendly, fair, and unbiased manner. Everyone deserves to be treated with the dignity they deserve. This office is here to serve you and I intend to provide the best and friendliest service possible within the guideline of this office. In my 18 years of service I have learned what each task requires; I have approached every transaction with you in a friendly yet professional manner and will continue to do so.”

“I have worked as elections clerk since 2012. However, if I am the chosen Republican candidate for county clerk, not this year, except with technical details.”

Respectfully,

Lynda “Lyn” Scott
