Storey announces candidacy for county clerk position

Washington County Chief Deputy Clerk and office manager Kathy Storey has announced her candidacy for the office of Washington County Clerk in the May Republican primary election.
Storey is a lifelong resident of Washington County and lives in Johnson City in the Cherokee community. She is an active member of the Embreeville Church of Christ and has taught Sunday school and served in various capacities.
Storey is a 1969 graduate of Lamar High School and was Vice-President of the senior class and the Beta Club. She was also involved in Youth in Government. She is a 1973 graduate of East Tennessee State University and received a B.S. degree in Business Management.
She previously worked as a staff accountant for five years at a local accounting firm.
“The skills and accounting principles I learned while working there have proven invaluable,” Storey said. “I was hired by former County Clerk Roy Phillips as the accountant for the County Clerk’s office and then became office manager under the direction of County Clerk Doyle Cloyd. Both were great mentors, distinguished and personable.”
Storey has served as deputy clerk and accountant for the past 28 years. The last 16 years, she has served as Chief Deputy and office manager.
“I am responsible for reconciling the monies collected for vehicle titles and registrations, sales tax, business and marriage licenses, notary applications, various permits and then disbursing the appropriate fees to the State of Tennessee and the County Trustee,” Storey said. “ I have enjoyed helping people with title and registration problems over the years and have tried to treat them with the highest degree of courtesy and professionalism.”
If elected Storey said she will serve in “a very courteous and professional way.”
Others who have picked up papers to run for the county clerk position include Sheila Haren, Ron England, Scott Hyatt and Tony Fowler.
