What must an effective County Clerk accomplish?

As County Clerk, I have an enormous responsibility overseeing the Department of Motor Vehicle, Public Records, Elections, 115 employees and an $11 million annual budget. I've been fiscally accountable and have spent tax dollars wisely, resulting in a $1.8 million savings for the past three years. I've prioritized accuracy, transparency, efficiency, accessibility and security with every election. My team and I have focused on customer service, reducing wait times in the DMV by 85 percent.

What traits are crucial for a County Clerk to possess?

I frequently have citizens tell me what a difference they see in the DMV. Great customer service, friendly smiling employees enjoying their jobs, and they don't dread visiting the DMV any longer. This is a result of the positive leadership and needed change I have focused on in the Clerk's office. My leadership style focuses on always being fair and honest, keeping promises, demonstrating integrity, setting expectation/goals, and above all else treating all people with respect.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

As your County Clerk, my time serving you has been exciting and engaging. I have been dedicated to providing exceptional public service and it has shown through our actions and results. I've partnered with our commissioners to produce necessary changes, positively impacting the people of Adams County. Working together, we have refined processes, implemented time and cost saving technology while working hard to create a positive customer experience.

What will your top priority be, if elected?

As your County Clerk, my team and I are dedicated to continue providing elections that are fair, accurate, efficient, transparent, secure and accessible to every Adams County citizen. We'll continue implementing and promoting time and cost saving technology (like the renewal kiosks and Gov2Go app) in the DMV that will continue reducing wait times. And we'll begin phasing in Drivers License services at our DMV locations.

What else should voters know about you?

Adams County citizens deserve a Clerk and Recorder who is invested in Adams County, not someone who recently moved here from out of state. I'm a third generation Adams County native. I have been married to my awesome wife for 21+ years and blessed to have a six-year-old son (who now makes four generations). I love spending time with family, golfing, hiking and everything else our beautiful county and state offers.
