In this era of decreased funding, the clerk of courts office must learn to do more with less.
I have advocated cross-training our staff, so the wheels of justice don’t come to a halt when someone gets the flu.
I will institute videoconferencing between the jail and court to decrease costs of transportation and staffing in cases where the physical presence of the incarcerated person is not required.
As clerk, I will create a website with FAQs and other information to make this office more helpful and informative to the public.
And there are ways to make the often burdensome jury selection process much less frustrating for our residents.
