The position of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County Clerk of Circuit Court is open, because current Clerk Wayne Harper is retiring.
He has held that post in Rockingham County and Harrisonburg for 28 years.
The term for the office is eight years, and it pays about $123,000 a year.
The clerk's salary is determined by the area in which the Clerk is located.
