TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Democrats in Terre Haute have picked a new city clerk.

There was a caucus Thursday evening to select a new clerk after Chuck Hanley announced his retirement.

It was an easy decision for local democrats because only one person offered their name for the job.

Michelle Edwards will be the new Terre Haute City clerk and finish the term started with longtime clerk Chuck Hanley.

Edwards has worked as the Chief deputy City Clerk for several years. She says this new job will allow her to take on more responsibility and continue projects already underway.

Judge Michael Lewis will swear Edwards in during a ceremony scheduled for March 29th at 6pm in the City Hall Courtroom.

Edwards will remain in office through December 31, 2019.

She says she plans to run for the office to retain the job.

Chuck Hanley says he supports Edwards in this new role and he will miss his time as clerk.
