I am writing in support of Estie Pope Bennington for Clerk of Superior Court of Guilford County. She has 20 years' experience in the Clerk's office and is thoroughly familiar with the duties and responsibilities of the Clerk. She has presided over more than 1,000 estate and special proceedings.
It is not necessary that the Clerk is an attorney. Estie is not an attorney. Of the 100 Clerks of Superior Court in North Carolina, very few are attorneys. If a Clerk of Superior Court is an attorney, that does not mean that the Clerk will maintain a good and efficient office as can be readily seen by the present situation in Guilford County.It has been said many times that experience is the best teacher. Estie Bennington has learned her lessons well. Estie Bennington will be an outstanding Clerk of Superior Court of Guilford County. Karl N. Hill Jr. Greensboro
