|Elected in 2010, Pete Duncan is the 27th County Clerk of Macoupin County. Duncan has worked to provide a more efficient and effective office while having the smallest number of employees in the office since at least 1948. He has also been a tireless advocate for more open and transparent government by increasing information online. For example, he single-handedly put online over 40 years of County Board minutes, resolutions and ordinances for the first time. Duncan, sworn in at age 24, is the youngest county elected official in Macoupin history and one of the youngest county officials in the history of Illinois. He was named one of the Top 25 Under 45 Young Leaders in Macoupin County in 2011 by the Macoupin Economic Development Partnership.
