Justin Maze is the new Williamson County Circuit Clerk.
Williamson County's Board of Commissioners appointed Maze to the position on Thursday.
Maze was a Republican candidate for County Board last year, but lost a close race in the republic primary to Tim Atkisson.
Austin Crabb resigned as the circuit clerk last weekend after public outcry over her arrest for DUI on January 21.
Crabb had just won election to the post in November of 2020, and took office in December.
