Edwardsville, IL – Madison County Clerk Debbie Ming-Mendoza has announced she will run for a third four-year term in 2022.
A friend of Labor, Ming-Mendoza said she looks forward to continuing to serve the residents of Madison County.
“Since taking over as clerk in 2012, it has been my goal to provide excellent services to the county while holding the line on the spending, and my team and I have accomplished that while taking on even more responsibilities,” she said.
She and her staff have been preparing for the merging this year of the Recorder’s Office into the Clerk’s office. She has also been working on making the office less reliant on the county general fund to save taxpayers money.
State Rep. Katie Stuart (D-Edwardsville) said Ming-Mendoza has done exemplary work on elections.
“It was an honor to work with Debbie to expand opportunities for voters to cast a ballot during this pandemic,” Stuart said. “Debbie was instrumental in offering advice on the legislation that we passed last year, and she is dedicated to ensuring free and fair elections. There is no better county clerk in Illinois at running elections, and I’m proud to support Debbie in her re-election efforts.”
State Sen. Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) also offered her support.
“Madison County has some of the best-run elections in the state, with ample access to cast a ballot and a seamless and smooth process for all voters. Debbie and her team ensure we have fair and free elections in Madison County, and I’m excited to support her in 2022.”
Ming-Mendoza lives in Granite City with her husband Mercie. She has two grandchildren from her son Richard and daughter-in-law Jeana, who also reside in Granite City.
