By AccessWDUN Staff

Previous Hall County School Board member Mark Pettitt won his primary election bid Tuesday night for the Clerk of Court role in the county.

Pettitt ran against fellow Republican Chris Slate, obtaining over 68% of the vote.

Pettitt said he aims to bring new ideas and innovation to the Clerk's Office through his leadership experience in both the private and public sectors.

“I am excited about this new challenge, and I look forward to operating a Clerk’s Office that provides superior customer service, modern technology solutions, and efficient administration of justice for the People of Hall County,” Pettitt said.

He was first elected to the Hall County Board of Education in 2018 to represent South Hall County. Pettitt became the youngest county-wide elected official in Hall County after winning that seat. He was then re-elected in 2022.

Prior to his role on the school board, he was appointed to the Hall County Library System Board of Trustees in 2013. He was then elected as chair of the board in 2015.
