Hyatt declares run for county clerk position

Lifelong Washington County resident Scott Hyatt has announced his run for Washington County Clerk. Hyatt plans to express the importance of management, service and accountability during his campaign.
Throughout his professional career, Hyatt has had over 17 years of management experience in the restaurant, automotive and automotive repair businesses.
He is currently the store manager for Miller’s Tire & Auto Service in Johnson City, where he has worked for over eight years. Hyatt has served with Business Network International, as past President, and has been a part of the membership committee.
“The Clerk’s Office is where Washington County Government meets people’s everyday lives,” Hyatt said. “Whether it is car tags, business licenses, or all points in between, we must make sure each citizen is served quickly and efficiently. It should be easy to do business with the county, and as County Clerk, I will do everything to make certain it is.”
He has been married for over 14 years to Tammy Corby Hyatt and together they have two girls.
“Often I think about what kind of county we are leaving to our kids and grandkids,” Hyatt said. “When I look at my daughters, I want them to live in a county where the government is effective for its families. I feel that it is very important that as a county office, we should set the bar high when it comes to staffing. I feel that we should hire qualified folks, but there should be a no nepotism policy in place.”
