Jenny Bennitt has announced her intention to seek candidacy for Marshall County Clerk in the Republican Primary.  A Marshall County resident since childhood, she lives in rural Bremen with her husband, Todd, where they raised 3 daughters.

Bennitt’s 8 years of experience working for Marshall County has given her insight into many aspects of the County.  Working in the Clerk’s Office provided her firsthand experience in the office procedures that will be very beneficial as Clerk.  While performing her duties in the Auditor’s Office, she gained valuable knowledge of the budget process, claims and payroll.  She is currently working in the Prosecutor’s Office, which requires daily communication with the Clerk’s Office and Courts.  As Clerk, her understanding of the importance of properly processing court documents and maintaining secure court records would be a continued priority.

A significant function of the Clerk’s Office is overseeing the County’s elections.  Bennitt would ensure voters that they can be confident in the security of the election process, which is the cornerstone of democracy.  Marshall County makes every attempt to encourage residents to exercise their right to vote, which is evident by offering countywide vote centers and early voting.  Bennitt feels both of these options offer a winning situation for everyone and she is excited to keep the election process moving in a positive direction.

“The Clerk’s Office assists the public in many ways, and I want to continue a high level of service to our community.  Acknowledging that everyone who enters our office has a right to be heard will help us to keep our focus on meeting the needs of the public in an efficient, professional manner.  Many hours are spent together with our co-workers, and it is important to me to promote positive attitudes within the office to create an enjoyable work environment.  Employee satisfaction is essential for the well-being of the staff, which in turn leads to providing great customer service.  I also believe that surrounding oneself with good people and really getting to know them is key to running a successful office.  I look forward to this opportunity and would consider it a privilege to serve the taxpayers of Marshall County,” Jenny Bennitt said in the press release.
