Wilson: Response to Candidate Remarks
Letter to the Editor
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor: I find it necessary to correct some false information that recently appeared in print in a local publication. There is no backlog in deed recording in this office. In fact, we provide same-day recording as a general rule. Our Real Estate staff is regularly praised as one of the best in the state.

Even the Georgia Superior Court Clerk's Cooperative Authority, who set and regulate indexing standards, sometimes call upon us for insight and opinion. We have a combined 63 years experience in the Real Estate Division. Ask any of the professionals who use our services on a regular basis. This Real Estate team frequently receives commendations from the public and our regular customers for their high quality service and commitment to their jobs serving the public.

I am the elected official and I am prepared to withstand the election year politics. But my staff members are some of the best employees in this county and deserve to be appreciated, not publicly trashed. On behalf of the experienced, well-trained and dedicated employees in this Office, I request that those responsible for this misinformation about them immediately issue a public apology to these employees. There is no justification for attacking innocent bystanders who have done nothing to deserve this and are simply doing their jobs very well every day.

Ruth A. Wilson
Clerk of Superior
& State Clerk
