Dear Friends,
I ask for your support in electing me to be your next Marion County Clerk…

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site to learn more about who I am and why I’m running for Marion County Clerk.  It means a lot to me that you’re a person who wants to make an informed decision, that you’re a conscientious voter, and that you know your vote REALLY does matter.  You are the voter that I wish to impress upon my commitment to serve!

My time as Mayor of Mill City, as well as my other experiences have given me extensive knowledge in budget process, intergovernmental relations, and long term planning and leadership skills.  Marion County Clerk is a non-partisan elected position that with my prior elected, business and volunteer experience, I am well qualified for.

I am a fiscally conservative, moderate republican.  All of this means to you that I will keep a close eye on the budget, work to keep a limited government, support a strong economic environment, strive to streamline process and red tape, commit to excellence in service to the public and promote personal freedoms.  

~ Tim Kirsch
