Carnette "Keith" Adkison has announced his candidacy for Washington County Clerk of Court.
A lifelong resident of Washington County, he is the son of Amon Carnette Adkison (Red) and the late M.E. McFatter Adkison of Vernon.
Adkison graduated from Vernon High School in 1975 and went on to Chipola Jr. College. He later graduated from Florida State University with a degree in accounting.
He then took a job at one of the nation's top 100 construction companies as the field and division office manager and has worked both in the private and public sector.
"One of the most important functions of the clerk of court is maintaining the financial integrity of the county," said Adkison. "The clerk serves as accountant, auditor and custodian of your tax dollars. I am qualified and ready to work."
Adkison is married to Nancy Alexander Adkison, and they have three daughters.
