Endorsed by Julie Hibbs, Circuit Court Clerk

Julie Hibbs has been the Circuit Court Clerk in Cheatham County since 1998. Before the 2018 election, she called her staff together and indicated this would be her last term. She mentioned she was praying over this decision and asked me if I would consider running for Circuit Court Clerk in 2022. After much thought, prayer, and discussion with my family, I felt led to begin this journey. After 24 years, Julie is leaving a legacy, and I am committed to building on that legacy as we move into the future.

Endorsed by Mike Breedlove, Cheatham County Sheriff

For years, Cheatham’s law enforcement agencies have had a positive working relationship with Holly. She is the most qualified candidate and will be a true asset for our citizens. Holly treats everyone who comes to the courthouse with professionalism and unconditional kindness during their most difficult moments. She also helps deputies with their many cases and is always available. Holly Waller is a proven, trusted leader and will be the right choice for Cheatham! I hope you give her your vote in the county’s first Primary Election on May 3rd.

Endorsed by Jake Lockert, 24 Year District Public Defender and 12 Year Prosecutor

I don’t usually get involved in local politics, but this young lady is outstanding. In my 30+ years working with Circuit Court Clerks and deputy clerks in our five county district, I know what it takes to be a competent and courteous Clerk and public servant, and Holly fits the bill in every respect. She is intelligent, experienced, honest, courteous, and will never forget she works for the voters. She is ready to hit the ground running September 1st.
