June 1, 2018 – I, Elise Strickler, am excited and proud to run for the office of Nevada County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters. It will be a great privilege to serve our community where I have lived for 26 years.
I first thought about running for this office back in 2012. I had been working in the Elections side of the Clerk-Recorder Office for two years when I realized this could be my path. I enjoyed the challenges of office, the nuances of the legal codes, and being part of the democratic process. I worked in the office for a total of four years and gained a vast amount of knowledge in a wide variety of duties including voter registration, managing staff, media outreach, candidate filing, building ballots, interpreting election and government code, and much more. I had the opportunity to expand my knowledge and career by moving into my current position as a Management Analyst with the Nevada County Executive Office. I have spent the past three years learning from amazing people about finance, government process, analysis, and more of the inner workings of the Clerk-Recorder Office. Supporting my work experience I have earned a Bachelors in Business Administration and a Masters in Library and Information Science.
My education and work experience have brought me to the point where I can effectively and efficiently run the Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters Office. I believe a focus on communication, outreach, collaboration, fiscal prudence, and technology utilization are essential to the success of this office. There are several programs and changes I would like to bring into the department. One of the programs that I believe would benefit our community is to offer opportunities for people to learn what to expect and how to interact with the office when running for elected office or for those who want to bring forward a local ballot measure. Another change I will work toward is making more information available about the Clerk-Recorder and Election Offices available including statistics on vital records and historical information on both the Clerk-Recorder and Election Offices. Additionally, I will work to ensure the sanctity and integrity of our vital records and election process by staying diligent in record maintenance and security protocols.
I am honored to be endorsed by the Nevada County Farm Bureau in my campaign to be your next Clerk-Recorder/Registrar. If elected I will perform the duties of the office professionally and with a passion for service. I, Elise Strickler, respectfully ask for your vote for Nevada County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters on June 5th, 2018.
