In response to the thousands of men and women who voted for me in Tuesday's primary election, I am pleased to offer a simple "thank you" for your continuing trust and support. But those two words don't seem adequate to express the depth of gratitude I feel.
Votes are the primary means by which Hamilton County citizens choose their government officials and also express their appreciation to those officials for their work on the public's behalf. As your Criminal Court Clerk for the past 20 years, I am very grateful for your trust in my ability to provide effective service to my county.
At the same time, my staff definitely deserves a "thank you" for their share of my office's success. We are open 24 hours a day each and every day handling all the paperwork necessary for every arrest and every traffic citation that comes through this office. Over 50,000 new arrests and citations come through my offices each year. That is a lot of work and it is important that it be done correctly and efficiently.
It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve you. I love my job and I look forward to the August 7 election and continuing that service. Thank you.
Hamilton County Criminal Court Clerk
