Ann Howard for Clerk of Circuit Court

I am excited to announce my bid for re-election for Radford City Circuit Court Clerk on November 5th. I have loved the twenty-three years I have worked in the Clerk's Office, serving thirteen years as Chief Deputy Clerk under Zelda Vaughn and ten years as your Clerk of Court.


I have lived in Radford my entire life, attending Radford City Public Schools and sending our three children there as well. I have been married to Tracy Howard for over thirty years and we are now the proud grandparents to three grandsons. I love this City and the family we have created in it.


The position itself is a family affair to me, as I am a second generation Clerk of Circuit Court in Radford, following in the incredibly large footsteps of my father, J.D. Harman. He inspired me to work hard to serve the citizens of our community and to always give back to Radford, a city that has given us so much.


Serving as your Clerk of Circuit Court gives me great pride and has allowed me to build close relationships with our citizens, members of the bar, court personnel, city management and city employees. I strive to keep the office up to date technologically, most recently making the change to electronic court files, which allows Judges and attorneys to access our court files from their offices and courtrooms. This is only one of many changes I have made to create a modern and efficient office while staying on budget.


The thing I love most about my job, is helping the citizens when they call or come into my office with any of the over 800 individual duties assigned to the Clerk's Office. I am very fortunate to work with an incredible staff that works hard every day to meet the citizen's needs.


I am asking for your support in re-electing me as your Clerk of Circuit Court. Your vote will be a vote for experience and consistency in a well run and efficient Clerk's Office.


I am proud of my accomplishments and of my time serving the citizens of my hometown and would love the opportunity to continue to serve the City I love. Thank you for your continued support.
