  • Hjelm makes run for county clerk

    Candidate Nathan Hjelm wants to bring his computer expertise to the county
    clerk's office.

    "I'm a computer scientist. I've got a master¹s degree in computer science,
    and to a large degree that was specializing in computer security," Hjelm
    said. "And with the fact that we're going more and more electronic, in terms
    of elections, the county clerk should understand the machines they're
    purchasing. I think that's always been kind of key; there are some really
    bad machines out there."
