Melanie Y. Rivera, who has worked in the county clerk’s office for 13 years, is running for the top job.
Rivera, the supervisor of the county clerk’s Bureau of Elections, announced her intentions on Wednesday. She will run as a Democrat.
Rivera praised the service of Paul Maez, a Democrat who has served as county clerk for the last eight years.
“A lot of things have happened since Paul has been clerk,” she said.
He can’t run again be-cause state law bars county elected officials from serving more than eight years at a time.
