Monday's 3-0 vote by the Wood County Commission to elevate Deputy County Clerk Mark Rhodes to replace Jamie Six as Wood County Clerk was, in our opinion, the right and logical move. Rhodes has worked in county government for nearly 30 years, many in the county clerk's office. He knows that office's routine and can hit the ground running on his first day running the office. He also was the choice of the office employees. These were advantages the other applicant, Paul Miller, could not meet.
