Crane to announce for clerk

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 12:20 PM

Larry Crane, a lawyer with a long career in government work, will announce Wednesday as a candidate for Pulaski County clerk. The current clerk, Pat O'Brien, is running for secretary of state.


Larry Crane will formally announce his candidacy for the office of Pulaski County Circuit Clerk on Wednesday, February 3 at 12:15 in the rotunda of the Pulaski County Courthouse.  He will run as a Democrat.  The current Clerk, Pat O’Brien, has announced that he will run for the office of Arkansas Secretary of State. 

      Crane, a licensed attorney for 30 years, has worked in both private practice and in government service.  Most recently he has acted as Chief Deputy Auditor for Arkansas State Auditor Jim Wood.  Previously he served as an Assistant Attorney General with Attorney Generals mike Beebe, Leon John and Mark Pryor.  During that time Crane also represented the Attorney General’s office in re-drawing new legislative districts after the last census. 

      “I believe my legal experience combined with my government service uniquely qualifies me for the position of Pulaski County Circuit Clerk.  I want to use my expertise to help the office operate more efficiently for the citizens of Pulaski County and hope to implement policies that will better serve the legal profession and our court system.” 

      Crane received his Juris Doctor Degree from the University of Arkansas, School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Henderson State College.  He and his wife, Pat, have three children, Cassie, Chris and Josh and 3 grandchildren, Madison, Kendal and Karr.   They attend Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church and are very active in the community.
