Reusing this from Knox County Criminal Court Clerks Mike Hammond’s Facebook page. Hammond took over the Criminal Court Clerk’s Office on September 2. In just over 16 days, change for the good has occurred.
Here is the status that he posted,
For many years I have bragged on my radio station staff. Now I get to brag on my staff at the criminal court clerk’s office. Many of you are aware of the problems we inherited. In just a little over two weeks our team under the direction of Richard Major has filed over 56,000 documents. These were documents lying in the floor, on top of cabinets, etc. These are legal documents and each represents a person who has been in our legal system. We have many more to go but they are getting it done. I just wanted to give a shout out for a mammoth job well done. The criminal court clerks office is rocking!

Great work by Hammond!
What about up just a few floor, as for the Trustees office what has changed besides Leuthold moving to the Knox County Property Assessors Office and Ed Shouse becoming Trustee? Apparently, NOTHING! It is just status quo with the same ole regime in place with only a new babysitter. So, while the media and the citizens were ready for real change, all we got was a babysitter. Here’s hoping that Shouse is just 16 to 20 days less aggressive than Hammond. Both of these offices needed fundamental shifts in daily operations. Hammond has delivered, Shouse is well taking it all in apparently.
