Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw Enters Historic Sixth Term By: Jordan Kelch Public Relations 6 O n November 6th, 2018, Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw won her sixth con- secutive term of office, making her the lon- gest tenured County Clerk (and female) in Jefferson County history. First inaugurated in 1999, Clerk Holsclaw has spent two decades building an agen- cy based around value, integrity, and performance. Recognizing the bi-partisan efforts, transparent operations, and customer service driven approach, the citizen of Jefferson County again entrusted the many responsibilities of the Clerk’s Office to Bobbie Holslcaw and her team. One of the more significant themes running through Ms. Holsclaw’s time in office is advance- ment. Over the last twenty years, the Clerk has overseen renovations to seven motor vehicle branches while opening an eighth (in Fairdale). The Election Center, along with the divisions of Finance and Human Resources, were moved from the Urban Government Center to the refurbished Edison Center in Old Louisville. The historic Deed Room in Metro Hall was completely renovated in tandem with landmark requirements. Offices in the Fiscal Court Building, housing the Dealer Department, Motor Vehicle Processing, Facilities, Liens, and Motor Vehicle Records, have all been individually refreshed and updated. With the goals of elevating customer experience and honoring the facilities she oversees, Clerk Holsclaw has put to rest the tired misconception of the ‘government office’. Advancement can be found in other areas, as well. The Jefferson County Clerk’s Office has con- tinued to introduce new technology to each of its divisions. In recent years, the Motor Vehicle Divi- sion has implemented the Print On Demand Decal System (known as PODD) while working alongside the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in rolling out the new Kentucky Automated Vehicle Information System (or, KAVIS). The Legal Records Division recently upgraded their land records system, known as “The Regis- try”. This software includes several new features that boost efficiency and precision, such as au- tomated book and page number generations, automated document routing, Social Security Number redaction, and bar code recognition. On top of these improvements also came a new online land records website with greater search capabil- ities and speedier access to 18 million pages of scanned records. The Election Center, after a long and detailed search, purchased new voting equipment from Election Systems & Software (ES&S). The DS200 ballot tabulator and ExpressVote voting system are top of the line offerings, bringing additional security features and advanced technology to the election process in Jefferson County.
