Circuit Clerk Ann Hudson to retire, learn how to relax

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Craighead County Circuit Clerk Ann Hudson plans to retire at the end of her term. She made that announcement last week.

Hudson has worked as Circuit Clerk since 1997, making her the longest serving clerk in Craighead County history. "I have completed my goals for when I came into office.  I was very excited and looking forward to completely automating this office, and I've done that now," Hudson said.

She said this job has allowed her to serve the public, something she loves to do. "I love to work with the public.  I love serving the people.  There's always something new happening.  It just doesn't get stale.  There's always new laws passing."

After stepping down, Hudson says she'll turn her focus to her family and traveling. She also plans to master the art of "relaxation."
