Candice Gates Devore running for Tippah County Circuit Clerk in 2023


After much prayer, I am stepping out on faith to announce that I will be running for the open position of Circuit Clerk for Tippah County.

I was born and raised here. I currently reside in Walnut, MS with my husband Larry, our three boys Will, Cole, and River. I currently work as a Director for a financial company working along side the Department of Banking. My scope of work includes working many years with the public, multi unit experience with operations exceeding 50 million+, Banking audits, profit & losses, supervision of 300+ employees, compliance, and Human Resource support.

Over the years I have had many accomplishments in my career. Some I am most proud of include several years of volunteer service at St Jude Children’s Hospital, Women in Leadership Award three consecutive years, and Urban Development board member with strategic responsibility to enhance communities.

Leadership is my passion. Leading with a voice for all that is fair, honest, and compassionate. This county deserves and needs someone with integrity and grit. I will give each member of this community just that. I humbly ask for your consideration in voting for me in August 8th.

You will be required to fill in the bubble and write in my name on the blank line.

My phone number is 662-587-9861. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
