Hall remains court clerk

NORMAN — Court Clerk Rhonda Hall secured her position Tuesday winning against Republican running mate Mitchell Slemp.

“I’d just like to thank everybody who helped me,” Hall said.

Hall said they did everything they could do for the campaign including walking and putting out ads through several media outlets. She said they hoped they would do this well.

“I feel good with what I did and everybody that has helped me. I’ve had a lot of support,” she said.

As one of the last remaining Democrats holding office in Cleveland County, Hall has held the position of court clerk since 1996. Her lone challenger this election was Republican Mitchell Slemp.

Incumbent Rhonda Hall started working in the Cleveland County Court Clerk’s office as a file clerk in October 1981 and became supervisor of the criminal division in 1990. In 1996 she was elected Cleveland County Court Clerk and was re-elected in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Hall received her Court Clerk’s Certification from the Center for Local Government Technology through Oklahoma State University. She is a member of the Oklahoma State Court Clerk’s Association where she has served on the Legislative Committee and served as Vice President. She is a member of the Cleveland County Cattlemen’s Association and serves on the board of the Salvation Army.

Hall’s roots run deep in Cleveland County. She is married to Neal Hall, they have one son, Chris. All are graduates of Moore High School. Both Rhonda’s and Neal’s families have lived in Cleveland County for many years. She is a fifth generation citizen of Cleveland County.

In 2009 under Hall’s leadership Cleveland County was designated credit card acceptance pilot court.

· Republican Mitchell Slemp

Mitchell Slemp began work for Mid-America Technology Center in 1974, where he initially served as a machine shop instructor and later as a liaison to the business community, helping to create training programs. Slemp said he hoped to serve as court clerk not just for the strictly regulated office duties, but also for the clerk’s role on the county budget board.
