I truly care about others. As an attorney, I serve my clients because I care about their problems. Twenty years ago, I met Joel Perez, Jr., a former gang member with a passion for helping underprivileged teens. He wanted to provide alternatives for youths facing the pressures of gangs. I helped him form and organize successful anti-gang programs in Elgin and Aurora. Since then I have spent much of my time, resources and efforts supporting various civic, charitable and youth organizations because I know our future lies in our children. I believe we are called to help one another.
Service at my office will be courteous and user-friendly. My goal as the Circuit Clerk is to serve the citizens of Kane County in a timely, efficient and ethical manner. As an outsider, I bring a fresh prospective to the office not being entangled by policies of the past. It is important that the Circuit Clerk’s office is well run and cost effective. Government must operate with its means.
I want to again serve my community again. During my time in the military I served as a clerk and a supervisor of over 100 clerks who deployed to wars. I brought them back safely. The main job of the office is to supervise the clerks who are deployed to various court rooms and to insure their safe return. I was awarded a medal for saving 1.8 million per year in inventory costs. Inventorying evidence for the criminal courts are a function of the office.The office needs integrity brought to it. I can do that.The office needs to be run like a business. I have run businesses.The office has over 100 employees and a union. In my civilian career I have supervised over 100 unionized employees in a production environment. I improved their output from 125,000 /mo. to 1.2 million/mo. I had help from I.E..
My qualifications match the requirements of the job and I’m willing to serve.
