The Landes Letter - February 2023 Edition


   I hope this email finds everyone doing well and staying safe. My focus this month is to provide updates from the Clerk's Office, including the announcement of my re-election campaign and Clerk's Office staff updates.

   I have also included the latest photos from the Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour. Please enjoy the latest photos.

My Re-Election Bid

   First, let me thank you for all the support and help you have provided me over the years, for my campaigns for the House of Delegates, and then in 2019 for your support to be elected the 17th Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk. You, my family, and many others have made my public service possible, and I want to thank you once again for all that help and support.

   I want you to be one of the first to know that in 2023 I plan to run for re-election as Clerk of Court for Augusta County. It is also my intent to seek the Republican nomination and then run in the general election on November 7th with all other Constitutional Officers, General Assembly members, and Augusta County Board of Supervisors members.

Virtual Photograph Tour

   This is another 1759 Judgement - Rogers vs. Donaho. Mr. Donaho received 20 pounds ($6,008 today) by order of the Court because Mr. Rogers misrepresented the age of a horse he sold to Mr. Donaho. Soon after the purchase the horse died.

   This is the Robert McClanahan vs. John Ware 1761 Judgement. Mr. Ware stayed at Mr. McClanahan's Ordinary and did not pay his bill. Also, included is the document listing the goods consumed by Mr. Ware.
