Longtime county clerk to run for another term

September 17, 2009

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Longtime Berkeley County Clerk John W. Small Jr. said last week he intends to seek another six-year term next year, and the Republican might have opposition in the 2010 election.

Small, 76, of Martinsburg, filed a precandidacy form Sept. 10, joining Democrat Christopher R. Ross of Martinsburg, who filed the campaign finance paperwork Aug. 21, according to the voters registration office.

Filing a precandidacy form allows candidates to lawfully accept contributions and make expenditures for an election if they ultimately choose to run for office. Candidates cannot file for an elected office until January 2010.

Appointed to the office in 1971 to replace the late Eugene Dunham, Small is the longest-serving elected officeholder in Berkeley County.
