Cynthia Jones will serve a second term as the Macon County Register of Deeds after winning the Republican primary election on May 1.

Jones and fellow Republican Sherry Brawner Tucker were the only qualifiers in the register of deeds race, which will leave Jones unopposed on the ballot for the general election in August.

"I'm relieved, and I'm excited," Jones said. "I appreciate all of the support I've gotten. I'm glad we get to stay here for another four years to do the things we do and see the people we see.

"Oh, what a relief it is."

Jones garnered more than 61 percent of the vote.

"It's a process," Jones said of her campaign. "It is tiring, moreso because I've been here (at the Macon County Register of Deeds office) five days a week from 8 (a.m.) to 4 (p.m.). That limits your ability to get out and meet people.

"It's humbling to think that 2,000-something people voted for me. I just hope I don't disappoint any of them."

Jones was quick to the point to the citizens of Macon County as the reason that she sought reelection.

"It's because of the people and the people I work with," Jones said. "We are one, big, happy family here at the (Macon County) Court House. I love the people here."
