Lesia Couch of Caraway announced Friday that she will seek a second term as Craighead County Eastern District Deputy Clerk.

Couch, 41, will be a candidate in the May Democratic primary election. She became Deputy Clerk in January 2000.

During her first term, she automated the jury selection system for the Eastern District and the Delinquent Real Estate and Personal Taxes.
