NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Adams County Chancery Clerk Tommy O’Beirne won’t be running for an eighth term.

The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/1vq0mwY ) reports that he announced on Tuesday that he wants to look at other opportunities, though none of them is concrete.

O’Beirne has spent 27 years keeping county records. The clerk keeps minutes for the board of supervisors and also files, images and records all court papers. The clerk also is involved in all mental, alcohol and drug commitment hearings, and serves as county comptroller, paying all claims and payroll.

O’Beirne’s announcement means the two members of Adams County’s governing body with the most seniority will be replaced in January 2016.

Board President Darryl Grennell said earlier that he won’t seek reelection.
