When Linda Fosher ran as the Republican candidate for the Niobrara County Clerk of District Court in 1986, her campaign slogan presented voters with the exhortation, “Build on yesterday, vote for tomorrow.”

Now, 27-years later, Fosher is ready to build on her own yesterday for her forthcoming tomorrow. As of April 30, she will be resigning as the Clerk of District Court. This resignation brings Fosher’s latest four-year run to an abrupt close. It was a sudden end that Fosher was hesitant to make.

Lamenting her premature departure from the office to which she was elected, Fosher said, “I hated to resign before my term was up. However, I was offered a wonderful opportunity with a company in Cheyenne and it was just too good to turn down. So, I accepted the position with the company in Cheyenne.”

Given her extensive history as both a resident and public servant of Niobrara County, this change of venue qualifies as a major era for Fosher. She moved to Lusk in the fall of 1978 and went to work at the Niobrara County Sheriff Office as both a secretary and a deputy. This brief vocational interlude preceded Fosher’s extended tenure as Clerk of District Court. For Fosher, this lengthy incumbency is analogous to a badge of honor.

“I’m absolutely proud of that,” Fosher said. “When people ask me where I have worked and I tell them that I have worked as the Clerk of District Court for 27-years, they’re like, ‘Wow!’”
