Cass County Circuit Clerk Kim York will seek reelection in 2018.
York, who was elected to a four-year term in 2014, is a Republican, who also has served on the Raymore-Peculiar School Board since 2010 and is a member of the Raymore-Peculiar School Foundation Board.
“I think we’ve accomplished some great things in the Circuit Clerk’s office over the last three years, and I look forward to the opportunity to build on our success and continue moving in a positive direction,” said York, who took office in January 2015.
York, who oversees more than 20 employees while serving as the administrator and financial officer for the Cirtcuit Court, cited the stability she’s brought to the office and improved efficiency among her first-term accomplishments.
York, a graduate of Harrisonville High School with a bachelor’s degree in accountancy from the University of Missouri and a master’s in business administration from the University of Kansas, also serves on a statewide judicial working group that’s working to automate and improve court processes, including jury management.
As a certified public accountant, York — who lives in Raymore with her daughters Hannah, 14, and Maya, 11 — previously worked as an auditor for Arthur Anderson & Co. and also work in budgeting and financial analysis for La Petite and Sprint.
