Mona A. Foley, a longtime worker in the Circuit Court Clerk's Office, announced her candidacy for Clerk of Circuit Court in Williamsburg/James City County.
Foley has worked in the office since 1993, and if successful would replace the retiring Clerk, Betsy B. Woolridge. "I have enjoyed working with and for Betsy; she has been a great mentor and public servant. She will be missed by me and the entire staff," Foley said in a statement on Monday.
She said she would "continue the progressive path" that Woolridge has forged. She also said she would seek to boost productivity through technology.
Foley is married to Christopher R. Foley, who works as a Physical Therapist with Tidewater Orthopedics, according to a news release.
