Clayton for clerk

Dear Editor:My name is Marian Clayton; I am a candidate for the Garfield County clerk and recorder, and have a mission and a vision to update the clerk’s office. I have the administrative and management skills to make this a reality, plus a 30-year background in business and government. I have four adult children and have adopted and raised three grandchildren as a single granny mom – I am accustomed to big challenges.I have been an employee of the Garfield County clerk’s office for 10 years, serving as administrative secretary to the clerk, deputy clerk to the county commissioners, and deputy registrar of vital records.This is the first of a series of letters to share my 21st century vision for updating the clerk’s office. The responsibilities of the clerk can be divided into six categories. I want to take each one and share how I plan to make my goals a reality.Today the subject is: “Recorder of Various Public Records”My goal is to implement electronic recordings and retrieval of those public records online. This can be accomplished by prepaid accounts or credit card payments. This spells convenience and excellent customer service.The following letters will be on the topics of: – Custodian of Public Records, – Administrative Officer/Agent of the State Department of Revenue, – Chief Election Official, – Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners, and – Registrar of Vital Records.A vote for Marian Clayton is a vote for confidence in change.
