Former Swain County Clerk of Court employee Rita Robinson Walls has been charged with embezzling $33,283 from the state in 2014.
Swain County’s clerk of court race is an early-season affair. With no challengers looming on November’s general election horizon, the contest will be decided in next month’s primary.
The Swain clerk’s contest is also a race that offers voters a stark choice. A choice between old and new, between same and change.
