Bowers announces 2nd run for county clerk

Staff report

Becky Bowers, who ran as a write-in candidate in 2010 for McCracken County clerk, announced Friday that she will be seeking the job in 2014. 

As a write-candidate, Bowers garnered 7,365 votes, picking up 39.3 percent of the votes cast in the race.

"I made my decision to run in 2010 after learning about the problems in the clerk's office," Bowers said. "There will not be 20-hour work weeks, lack of transparency, favoritism and retaliation against employees that speak up to make things right. That is not how a public office should be run and I will change that."

"Clearly the county clerk's office needs new leadership from a business person, and that is what I will provide," she said.

Bowers works as a senior sales representative for Hultman Inc. and has been there since 2007. Prior to that she was employed by the Paducah Sun for 20 years. During her 20-year career with the Sun she held various management and customer service positions from customer service manager to the newspaper's advertising director.

Bowers is a lifelong resident of McCracken County. She and her husband, Joe, are members of St. John Catholic Church and reside in Lone Oak.  She has one daughter, Jackie Wagner Long of Benton.
