Kim Clark’s political career owes a lot to the advice she didn’t take.
Clark, who wrapped up her third and final term in the Glenwood Mayor’s Office Jan. 1, decided to run for the Glenwood City Council nearly a decade ago on essentially a whim.
“There was no one running in Ward 3,” said Clark, who is a 15-year deputy with the Mills County Sheriff’s Office. “And I got elected on a write in. It was just a spur of the moment thing that lasted 10 years.”
