My name is Kathryn Tidwell Strong, and I am proudly running for Sumner County Circuit Court Clerk. The court system is a vital part of Sumner County government. An integral part of that court system is the Circuit Court Clerk and the staff members that work in the offices under the guidance of the Circuit Court Clerk.
As Circuit Court Clerk, I will increase the efficiency of the office by implementing the following:
- Digitizing files and implementing a system for attorney access to those files
- Create a website for ease of access to court dockets, forms and files
- Accept online payments of fees and fines
- An online process for selecting the jury pool in order to increase efficiency and reduce burden on tax payers
- Continually use updated technology to increase efficiency in the office which will ultimately save tax payer dollars
As a small business owner and active member of the community, I understand the need for efficiency and strong management in business, especially government. As Circuit Court Clerk, I will do my part to serve Sumner County well and be fiscally conservative with managing the budget within that office.
