After 30 years in the Boyle County Clerk's office, Denise Curtsinger is heading for the door.
Curtsinger, who was recommended for clerk by a retiring John B. Nichols in 1997 and won three terms on her own, said Friday that she will retire at the end of September.
"No, I'm not sick of it," she said. "I want to go while I still love my job."
Boyle Judge-Executive Harold McKinney will appoint someone to fill the remaining two years of Curtsinger's term. McKinney said Friday he has already heard from several people interested in the job, which pays about $60,000 a year.
"I would hope to be able to make a decision pretty quickly," McKinney said.
One of the main responsibilities of the county clerk is to organize and oversee elections.
McKinney, a Democrat who so far has no opposition, is on the ballot in November. But neither he nor Curtsinger saw any ethical concerns about McKinney choosing the person who will supervise the upcoming election.
