Kent County Clerk of the Peace Biography


Brenda A. Wootten is the current Clerk of the Peace for Kent County. Brenda has been a Kent County Delaware native all of her life.  She attended Lake Forest High School in Felton, Delaware and started employment with the Justice of the Peace Courts in 1981.  She left the Justice of the Peace Court in 1990 to further her education.  Brenda graduated with honors from Wesley College where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Paralegal Studies.


After college, Brenda worked as a Secretary for the Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill from September 1999 until July of 2001.  From August 2001 until December 31, 2016 Brenda worked as a Judicial Case Manager II for the Court of Chancery.   Brenda had over 27 years of exceptional public service experience with both the Judicial and Executive branches of state government before retiring from the State of Delaware to run for this office in 2016.


In the community, Brenda is an active member of her church, and is involved in various civic clubs and charitable organizations where she has given back to her community through volunteering her time, monetary donations, and countless acts of kindness.


After being elected as Kent County’s Clerk of the Peace, Brenda became the newest president of the DACRO (Delaware Association of County Row Offices) organization, a position she still currently holds. 


Since becoming the Clerk of the Peace, Brenda has done a total makeover of her ceremony room and strives to give each couple that gets married a most memorable marriage experience.
