Ramona B. Croushore, a Hebron Republican, has filed to run for Boone County Clerk in 2014 calling for the exploration of expanded services at no additional costs, improved customer service, merit based hiring, performance based pay, and full-time leadership in the County Clerk’s office.
Ramona Croushore is a paralegal in the law offices of her husband, Paul Croushore, and cites her life experience as qualifications. Croushore is a small business owner, has served as PTA/PTSO President for 6+ years, was a member of the Site Base Council at Conner Middle School, a graduate of the first Boone County Sheriff’s Citizens Academy and former Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children in the Boone County court system.
In deciding to run for clerk, Mrs. Croushore said, “I have been an active member of the community and I am constantly hearing people complain that the morale is low and the hours are just not convenient for working people. I have the private sector- and life- experience to bring a more businesslike and customer friendly approach to the operation. We need a system where hiring is based solely on qualifications and salaries and promotions are based on merit, productivity and customer service.”
Mrs. Croushore said, “When I am elected I will restore full-time on-site management of the office by the elected official.” She continued, “tax payers expect full-time leadership and they deserve nothing less.”
Croushore plans to explore a number of options to improve operational efficiency in the office. She said, “I’m convinced through effective full-time leadership we can achieve positive results. There are a number of options I’m exploring to make the Boone County Clerk’s office more responsive to the residents of Boone County.”
