NORTHAMPTON: Johnson announces re-election bid for circuit court clerk

Northampton Circuit Court Clerk Traci Johnson


Northampton Circuit Court Clerk Traci L. Johnson has announced that she will seek re-election in November. Johnson began in the Clerk’s Office as a part-time deputy clerk for her mentor, the late Kenneth F. Arnold, over 30 years ago. 

A lifelong resident of the Shore, she rose through the ranks and became in 2003 the first woman elected to the office of circuit court clerk in Northampton County.

Johnson and her team of deputy clerks “are proud to make customer service the number one priority in Northampton County,” home of the oldest continuous court records in America. 

With Northampton County’s rich history, advanced technology, and years of experience, Johnson said she endeavors to continue taking care of her constituents with a list of over 800 duties —from assisting with and preserving all their important milestones recorded in her office to digitizing and making them available online for generations to come.

Johnson often says, “I love my job and I get to help people every day. It is true that because I love what I do, it feels like I haven’t worked a day in my life. When folks see me, I want them to think, that’s my clerk of court. With the hope that I have touched each of your lives, I again ask for your vote on Election Day.”

The Eastern Shore Post will print at no cost candidate announcements for county or state elections. The announcements should be no more than 450 words, are subject to editing, and may include a head-and-shoulders photograph. Free announcements will not be accepted after Oct. 1.
