Passport Issues

Document Processing Backlog

The current lack of leadership at the Clerk’s office has adversely impacted the proper functioning of our Superior Court.   Hearing schedules have been upended by a 60-day backlog of unprocessed criminal and civil filings documents.  Court patrons are not receiving proper notice of hearing schedules, which can result in unnecessary default judgments and bench warrants.  Imagine facing a default judgment or bench warrant for a case and you were not notified in a timely manner.

These issues, born out of poor management, and an exodus of tenured and competent employees, must be promptly corrected. It is crucial to restore the faith of Cobb County residents in our system of justice.  If elected your Cobb County Clerk of Superior Court, I will reorganize management by placing talented deputy clerks in key roles and providing extensive training to staff at every operational level.  I will implement new hiring practices to ensure a knowledgeable, diligent and customer-oriented workforce.

Improving Court Services

The Clerk’s Courtside Services Division plays the critical role of managing a constant flow of criminal and civil records moving in and out of a multitude of courtrooms.  These electronic and hardcopy records must be safely stored and made available to the public while adhering to established privacy guidelines and security protocols.  As the Court’s hub of communication, the Clerk issues notices to court patrons ensuring all parties to a case are properly notified of hearing schedules. 

I intend to restructure and refocus senior management, re-train all support staff to enhance operations and service levels and create a detailed budget that allocates resources strategically. My administration will also invest in the technological infrastructure of the office by overhauling the outdated CRIS system and replacing it with a new records management system equipped to thwart cybersecurity threats. 

Achieving these objectives are vital to meeting the future needs of our fast-growing county while protecting official records and making services more readily available to the Cobb legal community and citizens.

From record-keeping to file storage and communications, a cohesive partnership supports seamless court processes.  Together with the management team, we will work to foster the development of a collaborative, supportive environment that allows Deputy Clerks to own their work while realizing their special role in our justice system. By fostering strong relationships, strategically assembling resources, and prioritizing efficiency, I aim to elevate the standards of the Clerk’s office.

The Simpson administration will be dedicated to building and maintaining collaborative relationships internally and externally because a well-connected court system translates to better outcomes for both the judiciary and the residents of Cobb County.
