The residency of Rowan County’s Circuit Clerk is being challenged in court.

A motion was filed by Sam King in Rowan Circuit Court on Monday, questioning Kim Barker-Tabor’s qualifications to run the Clerk’s office. 

Barker-Tabor says she isn’t sure why the motion was filed ahead of the May 22nd primary election…

Barker-Tabor was appointed to the position in January after her father, Jim Barker, retired. She faces two opponents in the primary race. 

The motion will be heard in Rowan Circuit Court on May 18th at 9:00a.m.
