I would like to announce that I am running for re-election in 2018 and I am excited about my campaign so far! I would like to thank you for all your help with my first successful campaign for Thurston County Clerk. I am honored by your confidence in both my abilities and commitment to our community. These past (almost) four years have been energizing and inspirational.
My top priority since taking office was the same key message I based my campaign on: the successful launch of the Odyssey case management system that has resulted in substantial savings to taxpayers since its inception in 2015. The Clerk’s Office is now open during lunch hour. My office has implemented a new e-filing policy for non-attorneys which means less trips to the Courthouse.
My future goals are to discuss the need for electronic filing of exparte orders, writs and search warrants. I also plan a thorough review of staffing levels and job classifications in my office.
In my second term, I want to continue my dedication to the citizens of Thurston County by continuing to maintain high professional and ethical standards and providing critical leadership as needed as a member of the Thurston County team.
