Gary Behler Thanks Voters

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

For all of those who voted last Thursday, thank you for exercising your right to vote.  We live in the greatest nation on the face of this earth and voting is a privilege that we should never take for granted. 

For those who voted for me, I personally thank you for your support.  I am very grateful and deeply honored to receive your vote.  My goal is to make this office the very best it can be each day. 

My staff and I have worked hard to make our office the first clerk’s office in the state of Tennessee to utilize a fully electronic workflow.  We manage your tax dollars wisely and we have greatly improved our customer service.  But we have lots more to do. 

We are piloting a Court Kiosk project this fall with the Administrative Office of the Courts.  We are also working with the AOC to initiate electronic filing in our court. 

Our staff is creative and is constantly seeking new ways to improve our services. I am honored to work with a team that has made it a priority to treat each person entering our office with the professionalism, dignity and respect that they deserve. 

My pledge to you is to continue delivering the highest level of service to the citizens of Hamilton County.  You deserve nothing less.  Thank you again for your support.

Gary D. Behler
Juvenile Court Clerk
Hamilton County

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

It seems there has been quite an increase in calls from telemarketers and I asked my man Cleo if he had any idea how to stop them. “What works if you are male -- Telemarketer: "Hi, my name is Judy and I'm with XYZ Company."
