Position/philosophy statement Experience Matters
The most serious issue facing the office of the Clerk of Court is delivery of and access to courthouse services.
I will address the issue of delivery of services by implementing standardized in-house training on process and procedures, creating a workforce planning model, and communicating performance and values based expectations. I will address the issue of access to services by promoting and expanding online assistance, promoting and expanding targeted services for the elderly and other groups, and proactively engaging and educating our community about available courthouse services.
