Chief Deputy Clerk Keith Brin Announces Candidacy for Lake County Circuit Court Clerk
As we have been anticipating for some time, in the wake of long-time clerk Sally Coffelt's retirement announcement, Chief Deputy Circuit Court Clerk Keith Brin will announce his campaign for Circuit Court Clerk later today. Here's the press release:
Brin Announces Campaign for Lake County Circuit Court Clerk
Current Chief Deputy Thanks Sally Coffelt for her Faithful Service to Lake County
HIGHLAND PARK, IL – With Lake County Circuit Court Clerk Sally Coffelt announcing last week her intention to retire at the end of her term after thirty-two years in office, Keith Brin has announced his candidacy in 2012 for the seat currently held by his boss.
“It has been an honor to serve as Sally’s Chief Deputy,” said Brin. “She has served Lake County with honor and integrity, and has taught me the most important responsibility of an elected official is to serve the public. I intend to continue that tradition of public accountability.”
Brin, an attorney and business executive from Highland Park, has made technology the focus of his campaign. He has led recent modernization efforts in the department and intends to further improve efficiency and access in order to reduce costs and improve customer service. In addition, he has pledged to continue the Lake County tradition of fiscal discipline and transparency.
Keith summarized: “By implementing a system that allows for the electronic filing of documents as well as universal access to the services and documents that are currently only accessible at the Clerk’s counter in Waukegan, we can increase accessibility, convenience, and security. The goal is to transform to a paper on demand system in order to save the taxpayers money while streamlining processes.”
