Improving Government Efficiency
We must continue in perpetuity to update, maintain, and preserve the $11 Billion of County records*… always utilizing the thriftiest, most dependable and efficient technologies available.
There are always ways to improve efficiencies. I will continue to work both with the public and other county agencies to devise ways to save the taxpayers from wasted expenditures and inefficient bureaucracies.
Since taking office in 2013, I have put in place cost and time saving measures:
We now return your deed in 5 minutes instead of 24 hours!
Streamlined the way we process certain forms saving about 30 minutes of staff time per day.
Found a way to save time and money by working with the county clerk’s office to place their certification stamp on documents electronically.
Increased the number of electronic recordings from 35%-74% saving valuable staff time.
In order to make our records more accessible, I converted 2.8 million images from microfilm to digital.
Transparency is of the utmost importance when it comes to our records our citizens have accessibility to. I will always do whatever I can to make sure our records our available. In fact, I have worked toward making them more available by converting them to digital and putting them online. Anyone can also come search our records for free. When my office has a KORA request, I immediately work to get the information out as quickly as possible. Please know that my door is always open for voters to come and talk to me about any way I can help improve the experience in the register of deeds office. Thank you for the opportunity to serve!
