Longtime Hopkins County Clerk Devra Steckler withdrew her candidacy for the post minutes before the deadline Tuesday.

 “I had every, every intention of running at least one more time when I filed on Nov. 6. And after I went to my dad’s birthday party, his 79th birthday party, it just kind of hit me Friday night,” she said. “And I was wondering if I was doing the right thing by committing to another five years. I just feel like my parents… I just felt the need that I need to be there for them.”
