Clerk and Master Sandra Edmondson   Leave Comment
My name is Sandra Edmondson. I was appointed to the office of Clerk and Master for Union County on February 1, 2014. I am married to Darryl Edmondson. We have two children, Darrick and Dylan.

My past work experience in my husband’s law office for many years, where I prepared legal documents and did legal research, has greatly aided me in the performance of my duties as Clerk and Master.

I previously worked for a municipality, the City of Maynardville and for Congressman Fleischman in his congressional office for several years, which has taught me that serving the public in a friendly and efficient manner is always first priority.

Please feel free to call or come by the office if you need assistance, or to just say hello.
