A person who's worked in the Yakima County Clerks office for 24 years wants to be the next Yakima County Clerk. Tracey Slagle has announced she's a candidate for the position of Yakima County Clerk.  Slagle has worked 24 years in the Clerk’s office including the last 18 in management positions.  She is currently in her 3rd year managing the Yakima County Juvenile Courts office. “I want to use my experience to get the Clerk’s office working again for the people of Yakima County,” she said.
