Jones County swears in new Chancery Clerk

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Concetta Brooks was sworn in Monday as the new Chancery Clerk of Jones County to replace Larry Ishee, who is retiring. Brooks was appointed by the Jones County Board of Supervisors to fill the post until a special election can be held in November. The winner of that election will finish out Ishee's term which ends in January 2016.

"It's going to be challenging," Brooks said "I feel like I've proven myself that I can take this and go with it and have an office here that's willing to serve the people of Jones County and give them what they deserve."

Brooks has been working with Chancery Clerk Larry Ishee for several years as Deputy Clerk and will be the first female to ever hold the position of chancery clerk in Jones County.
