Greenville native John Hall announced on Thursday that he has qualified and will run for the Democratic nomination for probate judge in the June 6 primary.
Hall, who has run twice for the former office of tax collector in 1998 and 20002, said that he believes the voters of the county deserve a choice in the probate judge's race.
“I feel like I'm a qualified candidate because I'm hard working, community oriented, community involved and dedicated to the county,” Hall said.

“I've always wanted to serve as a public servant, and I have a lot of ideas I would like to incorporate if given the chance,” Hall said.
Hall said one specific area that he would like to address as the new probate judge would be a way to curtail any possible avenue toward identity theft.
“Number one, I would like to see the cards for car license renewal to be sealed in an envelope,” he said. “I would also like to have a log kept regarding the public viewing of property tax records.”
Hall said that if elected that he will be as accessible to the public as possible.
“I will make every attempt to contact every registered voter in the county,” he said. “If I miss you, then please consider this a plea for your vote in the June 6 primary.”
