UPDATE: Lanier County Candidacy Qualifying Hearing Relocated and Rescheduled

LAKELAND, GEORGIA – The Clerk of the Courts candidacy challenge has been rescheduled.  It is now scheduled for Monday, March 30 at 11:00 a.m. at The Lanier County Courthouse, 56 W. Main St., Courtroom in Lakeland.  “Because of the health emergency and new public requirements,” said Josh Black, Elections Supervisor, “we needed to move into a space with a lot more room in order to hold the hearing and maintain the required social distancing.”

The hearing was rescheduled when one of the candidates had a family member pass away and became involved in grieving and arrangements in the death of her family member.

Incumbent Deborah Anne Clark, currently serving as Clerk of Courts in Lanier County, has challenged the qualifications of Barbara Anne Daniels, who has requested to qualify and run against Clark in the upcoming county elections.
