COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Lowndes County Circuit Clerk Haley Salazar, who was first elected in 1991, is not running for election to a seventh term this year.

The 61-year-old Salazar says she will retire when her term ends next January.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1tHyWYI ) Salazar began her career with Lowndes County in 1976 as a deputy circuit clerk. When her first term as circuit clerk began in 1992, the office had the only computer in the courthouse. Within a year, though, she began working with a vendor to computerize court records and voting rolls.

Salazar says she hopes to travel and spend more time with her family.

Qualifying for county elected positions, including circuit clerk, tax assessor/collector, sheriff, coroner, constables and supervisors, begins Monday. Deadline to qualify is 5 p.m. Feb. 27.
