Why are you seeking this office?

I am proud of Douglas County. We have a dynamic community with a Western feel and wide-open spaces. I want to serve our community and preserve these values.  As a former Republican, I've watched the current party de-value open space, reduce air, water and mining standards, and value corporations over people.  I`m running to provide an alternative.

What makes you the best choice for clerk and recorder?

As a financial adviser, I am a problem solver and a manager.  I've worked three terms in city government and know how government should be managed.  The county clerk you elect manages five departments, which are run by competent staff.  The job of the elected county clerk is one of effective management, keeping abreast of technology and ensuring the security of all records.

What are the most important traits or skills for a clerk and recorder to possess?

The county clerk's office records our marriages, our driver's licenses and registrations, real estate and political party affiliations. It oversees our national, state, county, special districts and school board elections. The management skills I bring to the office are critical thinking, problem solving and transparency.  I value and encourage trustworthiness and straight talk.

What must an effective clerk and recorder accomplish?

The county clerk and recorder's office must, and will, provide security and technology enhancements on a regular basis. Our voting machines are not in sync with most of the state. Our motor vehicle department requires technology upgrades to better serve our constituents.

What will your top priority be if elected?

My top priority is continued clean, secure elections.
