D'Lynne Shelton is the Chief Deputy over the entire office. D'Lynne does it all - She is the one in the office everyone turns to, from an entry-level clerk that needs guidance to the supervisor that needs direction with a problem to the County Clerk that looks to D'Lynne for support of all kinds. Everyone in the office is glad that D'Lynne is where she is! D'Lynne also ensures that that the office runs smoothly and according to plan. I guess that leaves me, Cynthia Mitchell. I am proud to serve as your County Clerk. I hope that in your dealings with our team, you will come to know that our motto is:

It is more to us than you just getting what you came for
It is how you were treated while you were here that matters.
