Moscow, ID – Matthew Casberg announced today that he is running as the Democratic candidate for the position of Latah County Clerk.  Mr. Casberg is a career administrative professional with over 20 years of experience, currently serving as an administrator for Tri-State Outifitters, a position he has held for 13 years.

“I am excited for the opportunity to serve as the Clerk of Latah County.  It is the culmination of over two decades of administrative experience across a myriad of disciplines. I believe that my former military and government-level administrative and liaison work, combined with my experience in the retail industry and working with the developmentally disadvantaged, give me the solid base of experience to serve the people of Latah County with integrity, honor, courage, and commitment.”

Mr. Casberg is a firm believer in the rule of law and has studied accounting principles, key to the position of Clerk for Latah County.  He served as an Ex-Officio in the Marine Corps and understands the deeper responsibilities of record keeping as well as information accessibility within the constraints of confidentiality.  “I’ve been responsible for confidential information for my entire career. From Battalion Commanders to teenagers with developmental issues to a highly successful retail company.  To me there is no difference; the rule of law should apply equally and fairly to all.”

Mr. Casberg is the father of two sons, an Air Force Airman and a mill worker in Waldport, OR, as well as stepfather to a pre-med student at LCSC.  His wife, Michal, is the interim District 5 Democratic chairperson.

The Clerk of Latah County is a four-year term and is responsible for the county’s election process.  He is adamant that the integrity and security of the legal votes of all the people of Latah County are vital to the democratic process.  “The rule of law must be upheld, regardless of a person’s personal convictions.  If elected, it is my duty to serve the people of Latah County and ensure their voices are heard.  I will serve in my position with that as my bedrock principle.”
