MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County Circuit Clerk Virginia M. Sine will face at least one opponent in the May 12 Democratic primary.
Legal secretary Nancy P. Burkhart, 39, of Martinsburg, said Wednesday she will file to run against Sine in the primary.
"I feel I have the background, the hands-on experience and the energy to deal with certain problems and the needs of the public in every aspect that the office of the circuit clerk requires," Burkhart said.
Sine, 53, of Martinsburg, was elected to the office in 1992. She said Wednesday she intends to run for another six-year term.
