Salem, Or. — Economic Development Analyst, Danielle Gonzalez, filed last week to run for Marion County Clerk. Gonzalez will attempt to unseat the current Marion County Clerk, Bill Burgess. Last day to file for the race is March 10th.
Gonzalez states “In the coming year, Marion County will experience a Census decennial count, congressional redistricting, and underlying concerns of election insecurity. I am running because in the 15 years my opponent has served, the Marion County Clerk has been unable to attract the necessary resources to address these evolving concerns.”
The Marion County Clerk is responsible for conducting local elections and to provide direct constituent services such as marriage license filings, title filing, county records management, and passport applications.
“The time is now, to elect fresh leadership that appreciates the challenges ahead and is willing to face them head on,” Gonzalez said. “I take on challenges others avoid. It is the job of the Marion County Clerk to protect the electoral process and provide equitable access and services to county residents. Marion County deserves a leader who is willing to do the hard work and bring resources to ensure the electoral integrity of our democracy.”
Gonzalez has 15 years of public service at the federal and county levels of government.
The election day for the Marion County Clerk race is May 19th.
