I would like to thank everyone who voted in the Nov. 6 election. I am honored to have had the vote of so many of you in my bid for the county clerk’s seat.
As many of you know, the office has been plagued with problems and a change is definitely needed to end the waste of tax dollars and employee abuse that has dominated for far too long.
I congratulate Mike Backus on his win and I expect he will turn the department around and end the abuse that the employees have had to tolerate from the office management and restore the office to public service.
I had the opportunity during the campaign to meet with some of the employees, and after hearing their stories and seeing their proof, there is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Backus has his work cut out for him.
I intend to keep up to date with the office and will keep in touch with the employees to ensure it is operating in the best interests of the taxpayers and employees of Oswego County.
