To the editor:

I write to support Andrew Brock for Davie County Clerk of Superior Court. I worked for Andrew Brock for several years as a legal intern when he ably served Davie County in the North Carolina Senate.

The clerk of court runs the day-to-day operations of the county court system. As a practicing lawyer, I can tell you the clerk is essential to the administration of justice in the county. Having worked for Andrew Brock and seen how he managed his senate office and staff, I’m confident he has the skills needed to run the clerk’s office efficiently and effectively, always being mindful of taxpayer dollars. One aspect of the job that many citizens aren’t aware of is that the clerk of court also has judicial responsibilities. The clerk of court is the ex officio judge of probate and acts as a judge in special proceedings. Andrew Brock respects the rule of law and will be an impartial and fair-minded judge.

As someone who worked closely with Andrew Brock for several years and now practices law in the courts of North Carolina, I wholeheartedly recommend him for Davie County Clerk of Court.
