 Clerk to Bid Farewell in January 

I have been honored to serve the citizens of El Paso County as Clerk and Recorder for the last four years.  In January, I will take the oath as Colorado Secretary of State and continue my public service to the citizens of the State.  It is with deep satisfaction and gratitude, but a little bit of sadness, that I leave the Clerk’s Office.

I would like to thank the entire team of the Clerk’s Office for their support, professionalism, expertise and commitment to our customers.  They are primed to continue their excellent service under a new Clerk.

The cornerstone of our office is integrity.  It was always my goal to ensure that each of our departments operate on that foundation.  It is my belief that we accomplished that throughout – in the systems, adherence to law, leadership team and employees.  Our staff members are exceptional in their technical knowledge and commitment to our customers.  It has been my privilege to work alongside them, help develop their skills, and together enhance the efficiency and professionalism of our office.

There have been challenges that we met with fortitude.  The devastating Waldo Canyon fire during the 2012 Primary Election required our staff to deploy new methods to ensure displaced citizens would have the opportunity to vote.  On Primary Election night, June 26, the fire forced our office to evacuate.  However, our wonderful staff worked to ensure it was accomplished while keeping the ballots and election system secured, and others safe.  This is just one of the countless examples I could share of the hard work and dedication shown by our staff that I will miss dearly.

Chuck Broerman will become Clerk and Recorder on January 13.  Chuck has held the position of Operations Manager since November, 2011 and became Chief Deputy in February, 2013.  He has been at the forefront of operational and staffing decisions and has garnered experience in each of the office departments, and locations.

We have every confidence this transition will be seamless for our customers and our staff.  Chuck will bring his own strong leadership style to the position of Clerk and Recorder.  Most importantly, Chuck will direct the office and staff with the same objective that continues to be the cornerstone of our office – integrity in systems, operations, and customer service.

As a final note, I would like to thank the citizens of El Paso County for giving me the privilege of serving as your Clerk and Recorder for these last four years.  You have given me the best job, and I will always fondly remember my time here in your service.
