Say hello to Putnam County’s soon-to-be new circuit clerk.

Carly Neubaum, 26, of Granville will be Putnam County’s new circuit clerk effective May 1.

Monday night, the board accepted current circuit clerk Cathy Oliveri’s recommendation.

Oliveri announced her resignation last month, citing family obligations. She recommended that her chief deputy, Neubaum, fulfill her remaining term that ends in 2020. Both are members of the Democratic Party.

Neubaum said she began working in the circuit clerk’s office in 2015 and said she plans to run for the seat in 2020.

Board member Willie Holmes asked Neubaum if she’s fully qualified after board member Steve Malavolti asked if there was discussion on the matter.

“I think so,” Neubaum said confidently, and Oliveri followed with a confident, “I know so.”

Board member Charlie Lenkaitis and chairman Steve Malvolti thanked Oliveri for her service.

When asked if the office would hire someone after Oliveri is gone, Oliveri said the budget includes room for the circuit clerk and two employees, which is what the office currently has.
