Leah Denbo has been elected to serve as the next Montgomery County Clerk following a Montgomery County Republican Central Committee caucus on Tuesday.
Denbo will take over for Karyn Douglas, who submitted her resignation following her election for Crawfordsville clerk-treasurer in November’s General Election.
Denbo, who was the only candidate to file for the upcoming vacancy, will take office Jan. 1 and complete the final year of Douglas’s term.
Denbo has worked in the county clerk’s office since August 2012 in various capacities, including her most recent role as chief deputy.
“I am cross-trained in all aspects of the office,” Denbo said. “With my knowledge and skillset, I believe this will be a smooth transition for the county clerk’s office.”
Douglas’s resignation takes effect Dec. 31. She will be sworn in as city clerk-treasurer on Jan. 1.
