For Mecklenburg Clerk of Superior Court

Voters are choosing between two Republican candidates, Martha Efird and Paulina Havelka, in a primary to replace Martha Curran, who has run the clerk’s office since 1990 but is not seeking reelction. The winner of the primary faces Democrat Elisa Chinn Gary in November.

Both Efird and Havelka have experience in the Mecklenberg clerk’s office, and each brings an outside perspective as attorneys in Charlotte. Efird’s experience in the clerk’s office is more extensive, however; as assistant clerk, she worked more closely with Curran on administrative matters. Curran has endorsed Efird to be her replacement. Both Efird and Havelka are capable, but we give Efird the nod, too.
