The Pasquotank Republican Party had another reason to be proud of one of their own Monday. Prior to Jonathan Meads being sworn in at the 6pm County Commissioners meeting in Pasquotank, earlier that day Jennifer Thompson, a relative of Jonathan Meads, was out in Currituck also being sworn in for an important new role within Pasquotank County. Meads family members were in attendance in support of both new officials. Seen photographed with Mrs. Thompson are her youngest son Winston and her oldest son Quinn. Present at the swearing in was Lorie Carey her mother and husband Howard Thompson and Regina Meads her mother in law.
Kathy Cartwright, who announced her retirement from Pasquotank Clerk of Superior Court in December and officially retired February 1st, having worked alongside Jennifer Thompson for the last half dozen years supported the remainder of her term being filled by Mrs. Thompson and had recommended her as her replacement. Mrs. Thompson was a civil clerk for five years and performed bookkeeping duties for the past year alongside Mrs. Cartwright and was able to perform the duties required of the job. Before her involvement working for the courts, Mrs. Thompson was a human resources director for over 10 years. She obtained her Masters Of Business Administration from East Carolina University in 2010.
Judge Tillett gave much thought and consideration and ultimately supported this recommendation by Mrs. Cartwright. Tillett, a District 1 Judge of the North Carolina 1st Superior Court Division, performed the swearing in. His jurisdiction includes Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties. Jennifer Thompson was sworn in the morning of Monday, February 1st in a Currituck County courthouse where Judge Tillett was presiding that day.
