Susan Hazel, Huron County clerk of courts, filed her petitions for re-election this morning.
Hazel, who has been clerk since 2003, said she wants to continue to provide proven leadership for the clerk's legal and title offices.
Over the past five years, Hazel has expanded the use of technology in her offices and focused on customer service. The clerk's offices now use facsimile filing and fax services and computer imaging for court records.
"I am fortunate to have outstanding staff members," Hazel said. "Our offices function as a team. I am also pleased with the spirit of cooperation between our county offices. On a daily basis we not only work with the Common Pleas Court, but also the offices of the prosecutor, treasurer, auditor, recorder, the sheriff and the commissioners."
