Family: Married to husband Brad Harvey for 5 years; 3 children, all girls: Jordan – 16 years old; twin 2-year-olds, Bradyn and Brynan
Occupation: Deputy Clerk for the Baker County Clerk of Courts Office for 19½ years
Education: Graduated from Baker County High School in 1993
Political experience: None
What do you see as the top three issues in this race?
- Training – At this time most Deputy Clerks are trained to handle only criminal or civil divisions. It is my vision that all Deputy Clerks be cross trained to the extent of being able to answer questions from citizens no matter which division they are assigned.
- Technology – The current Clerk of Courts has already begun the integration of new technology in to the Clerk's Office in form of computer systems. I will not only continue to explore but I will openly welcome technology that will provide ease and comfort for the citizens of Baker County while doing business at the Clerk of Court's Office.
- Accessibility – Many have expressed concern that when calling for information from the Clerk's Office that they are unable to speak to a Deputy Clerk. It is my full intent to dedicate a phone line in which an operator will answer during normal business hours, Monday thru Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This operator will in turn provide one of two services: answer whatever questions the citizen may have or dispatch the call to a Deputy Clerk in that respective division.
Why should people vote for you?
For the experience and working knowledge that I have in all divisions of the Clerks Office. I have also been vital to the Clerks Office during the change over in the computer system in which the entire Baker County Clerk's Office uses on a daily basis.
What do you hope to be remembered for after you leave office?
The courteous customer service provided by my staff, the ease and efficiency in which the citizens are cared for one entering my office, and the overall working knowledge in which I have from working as a Deputy Clerk for a continuous 19½ years.
