Faye Griffin, candidate for Clerk and Recorder

Posted

Incumbent

Party: Republican

City of Residence: Unincorporated Jefferson County near Arvada

Profession: Current county Clerk and Recorder

Campaign website: FayeGriffin4jeffco@yahoo.com

Why are you seeking this office?

I am the only candidate with the knowledge, experience and qualifications for this position. Currently I am the Clerk and I'm aware of the many changes to my departments. I first ran for this office in 1998 and served the citizens for eight years. I returned in 2015 because this is where I began my career and I know and love this job. I have a great staff and am very proud of them.

What is the position's most important duty?

Follow the statutes and laws with qualified, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Each of the departments are governed by rules and regulations that must be followed. Elections are by Title I, Motor Vehicle by the Department of Revenue and Statutes, Recording and Clerk to the Board by Statutes.

How would you best achieve that duty?

We have very knowledgeable employees. Training programs within each department take several months. We have continual training classes on line, by telephone and in person for each of our Departments. The County also has a training program on our rules and regulations from our Human Resource Department as well as safety programs for our employees.

What would be your top priority if elected?

Continue to have the best services possible for the citizens. Continue to have the most accurate elections in the State with my outstanding staff. We need to have updated facilities for our Motor Vehicle office in Lakewood and our Evergreen office needs to be expanded.

Would you be in favor of making Election Day a holiday?

General Election Day in November is a County holiday now. This is by the approval of the County Commissioners. It would be nice to have it a holiday for everyone. Now, employers are required to allow employees to go vote  if they have not already voted. We have vote centers open for two weeks before the election to enable citizens to register and vote in person. Most of our citizens vote by mail.
