St. Clair County's political landscape became more intriguing this week when Belleville City Clerk Dallas Cook announced he will seek the Republication nomination for Circuit Clerk in next year's general election. Cook will likely face incumbent Kahalah Dixon Clay, Democrat, who has served as Circuit Clerk since 2011. Clay was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Brendan Kelly, who moved up that year to become State's Attorney. She ran unopposed in 2012.
