It has been an honor to serve the West Shore Community over the last 18 years. Since I started in 1996, the Rocky River Municipal Court has become one of the most well-respected courts in Ohio. Much of that is directly related to the advancements that I have been directly involved in such as installing a state-of-the art computer system, installing an imaging system so all of our documents are available real-time on our website where ePayments have been the norm for 10 years. E-Filing has been in use for the last four years and we are currently upgrading that service to be even more user friendly. Being the keeper of the Court Record, we continue to implement the latest technology as it becomes available to insure that all records are kept accurately and completely.
All of our advances have been accomplished without having to use one tax dollar since 1997. This is at a time when most courts around the state are in financial crisis. The Ohio Supreme Court formed a task force to find better ways to fund the operations of Ohio’s courts. I am honored to have been asked to serve on a committee of this task force. The key in leading a well-run organization is knowledge and experience and that was acknowledged in 2011 when I was honored to be named the Clerk of the Year for the State of Ohio.
When experience counts, count on experience.
