Published 3:52 pm Friday, March 17, 2023

Megan Clark announced Thursday that she will seek a third term as Commonwealth’s Attorney of Prince Edward County.

“Serving in this capacity for nearly the past eight years has been an honor,” Clark said. “My office continues to look at every case using the lens of fair and consistent justice. I will continue to work with our law enforcement agencies to maintain safe communities, promote accountability with compassion, and evaluate how my office’s response to crime supports crime deterrence. The end result is justice for all.”

From day one, Clark has worked to make the prosecutorial process more transparent. She has made her office more community centered, and she supports crime prevention efforts within the county.

“Our work as prosecutors includes more than being in the courtroom,” Clark said. “Although we advocate for victims of crimes and holding people accountable through successful prosecutions, it is also important to learn about the community you serve. We must work to create a safer community such that people want to live here and trust that their safety is a priority.”

As she has done her prior two terms, Clark will be seeking the Democratic nomination.
