County clerk and recorder election

Print Article

What qualities and specific job skills do you have that will allow you to be an effective Clerk and Recorder?

I bring 25 years of experience serving in the Clerk and Recorderís Office, which totals more experience than the other candidates combined. As your next clerk and recorder, Iíd begin my service with a deeper understanding of the duties for this office.

Several of those 25 years I served as chief deputy, giving me opportunity in management and responsibility in interviewing and training of new employees.

During my time in the Clerk and Recorderís Office, I worked in the Election Department and as a backup clerk of the Board of Commissioners. I have training in records management and was instrumental in forming Flathead Countyís Record Center.

Two years in the plat room allowed me to gain experience in the overall operation and function of that office. Plat room, records management, elections and auditing fall under the umbrella of the Clerk and Recorderís Office and represent the sum of my employment with Flathead County government.

My personal qualities include professional integrity and common sense, knowledge of the Clerk and Recorder departmentsí functions and wisdom in dealing with people from various life experience backgrounds.

What changes, if any, would you make in how the Clerk and Recorderís Office is run?

First, I would need to assess how the office is currently operating; however, my goal is to manage an office that is proficient in dealing with county records and electoral responsibilities. Second, to maintain an office atmosphere that is harmonious within the ranks of the employees as well as with the citizens of the Flathead.

Why do you want to be Clerk and Recorder?

By applying my skills listed above, I would strive to be a benefit to Flathead County. When elected clerk and recorder, I would give back to the people what I have learned through the years of ďon the job training.Ē
