SHEPHERDSVILLE - The past year has been a busy one for Paulita Keith.
Once she decided to run for the office of Bullitt Circuit Clerk, the past 11 months have been planned to perfection.
On Tuesday night, there was finally a moment to relax as the certified public accountant, whose mother served as property valuation administrator, defeated incumbent Layne Abell.
Keith collected 17,475 votes while Abell had 13,460, about a 4,000-vote advantage.
"I'm very excited," said Keith. "The people did this."
