Efird Wins Republican Primary
Congratulations to Charlotte Litigation Attorney Martha Efird, who won the May 6 Republican primary for Mecklenburg Clerk of Court. With 195 of 195 precincts reporting, Efird led Paulina Havelka 73% to 27%.
“I want voters to hear about the importance of the job, how integral it is to the entire court system and how it affects every citizen in this county,” Efird told The Charlotte Observer.
The clerk’s staff of more than 200 handles approximately 300,000 legal filings per year, and stores all civil and criminal court files. The office also has numerous judicial responsibilities and handles money collected from fines and court fees.
