Baker not running for re-election, hopefuls begin to line up for clerk's post

By B.J. Williams Assistant News Director

Charles Baker, who has been Hall County's Clerk of Courts since 2008, confirmed this past week he will not run for re-election. 

Baker's third term comes to a close on December 31, 2020.

"I worked many years in the clerk’s office as a deputy clerk and the last seven years as Chief Deputy Clerk before I was elected as Clerk in 2008," Baker said in an email statement. 

He did not cite a specific reason for leaving office.

"I believe the voters in Hall County will elect a good Clerk of Court," Baker said. 

Already, two candidates have announced their intentions to seek the post. Jennifer Gibbs, a certified public accountant, launched her campaign on social media in October. Last week, retired Hall County Sheriff's Captain Brad Rounds publicly announced his campaign for Clerk of Court.
