Charles E. Corry, Ph.D., F.G.S.A.
Republican Candidate for El Paso County Clerk & Recorder
Many of the most basic functions of our government devolve upon the office of the county clerk and recorder. That is a wise and deliberate policy to keep citizen affairs at the lowest practical and most responsive level. However, that makes the selection of a responsible clerk and recorder more critical than it would seem at first sight.
The clerk and recorder in El Paso County has many and varied responsibilities, the most critical of which is the conduct of fair, honest, transparent elections using a secret ballot. The Clerk is further charged with archiving and preserving many of our most critical documents as well as issuing licenses, titles, and registrations. The county clerk is also responsible for documenting the actions and decisions of the county commissioners.
Unfortunately, county clerks are also the targets of many unfunded mandates by state and federal legislators and bureaucrats. An example might be the requirement that the clerk enforce statutory diesel emission control requirements.
By the 21st Century most of the functions of the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder were heavily dependent on computers and electronic devices, e.g., relational databases, graphic interface systems (GIS), and document scanning and electronic archival storage. As the complexity of the equipment used in the office has increased so have the educational and technical abilities required of the staff and clerk. Gone are the days when voter registrations were kept on 3×5 index cards and paper documents were stored in files.
While technicians might service and maintain such equipment, technical management at the highest level is now required. To ensure the systems are integrated and perform the functions required and are not just some vendor’s pipe dreams and promises technical project management experience is a must. Database architecture and management; computer system administration, security, and networks, mapping and geodesy for GIS systems; Internet and web design and access; etc. are not something attorneys, accountants, or MBAs learn. Today the county clerk for even a medium-size county like El Paso needs an advanced degree in engineering or science, as well as project management experience.
I am the only candidate with the experience, education, and management experience needed for a 21st Century clerk and recorder. Additionally, I have ten years of research into election issues.
