I have been a Grant County resident for 16 years and the past 11+ years I have worked in the Grant County Clerk's office. I have always strived to serve the County to the best of my ability and would like to continue the tradition of service to the County as the new County Clerk.
The County Clerk's office is vital as the keeper of the County records. These records include, but are not limited to Deeds, Mortgages, Reconveyances, Mining Claims, Plat Maps, County Court Journals, Probates and Marriage Licenses. The recording, processing and preservation of these documents is critical and needs to be done in a very precise manner to assure that information, historical and current, will always be accessible and traceable. I have the training and knowledge to make sure this will continue to happen.
The County Clerk's office is also vital for the election process. The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and Oregon Centralized Voter Registration (OCVR) has made voting accessible to more citizens. It is critical the County Clerk be, and stay, educated in the proper election procedures. I assure you I am dedicated to do so.
I believe my experience and dedicated service to the citizens of Grant County shows my ability to be the next County Clerk. I hope you will show your support by electing me as County Clerk and giving me the opportunity to continue to serve.
