Many months ago, I began working towards being your 2018 Register of Wills for Anne Arundel County. At the first opportunity, I filed to continue to be your Register of Wills.
Over the course of my third term as Register of Wills, I’ve worked towards many important goals for the office. I would like to take a moment to review the completed projects in my office.
Started accepting credit cards for payment, assisted in redesigning the Register of Wills website, approved changes to improved server technology in my own office, and assisted in passing laws to reduce reliance on paper.
Updated all office computers to Windows 10, started accepting online credit card payments for invoices, and began the paper reduction initiative to eliminate reliance on paper records.
Updated 30+ forms on the website and within the office as set forth by the Court of Appeals, created a PDF processing plan in preparation for offering copies online, greatly improved the paper reduction law, created an inventory system for office asset management, and updated all employee office equipment.
Made delivery of copies online possible using credit cards, began delivering online copies with great success, greatly improved data safety through better backup and recovery plans, improvements to statutory inventory and record-keeping requirements, online employee training sessions, and fully-functioning paper reduction initiative.
My goal and my passion is to keep the spirit of this agency headed ever forward into the future. True constituent service comes with intuitive and cost-effective services that reduce costs and improve access. I feel like the last four years have been a testament to that spirit. I hope, with your support, to continue to take this office forward in the coming years. Thank you.
