|New Knox County Recorder Assured at Fall Election
|Two people looking to replace a retiring Knox County office-holder say their experience should get them the job.
Both Paula Monzo and Carol Hallam were at a candidates forum held Thursday night hosted by the Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly. The two are looking to replace Nancy McCune as Knox County Recorder.
Monzo, who currently works in the Knox County Clerk's office, says that experience should help her out well. "I feel I can bring some of that knowledge up to the recorder's office and build a more open line of communication with the citizens and taxpayers" Monzo said. "I'd like to get more involved with the rest of the county as far as the elected officials and department heads, and improve our offices as far as making them more accessible."
Hallam says her current experience in the recorder's office makes her more qualified. "I've worked under two active recorders, Herb Brown and Nancy McCune, and I've learned the operations of the office from the ground up," Hallam said. "As Chief Deputy, I've made the Recorder's office records more accessible through the internet, and I am continuing modernization -- keeping them up to date, the land records."
Candidates for Knox County Sheriff, Ninth Judicial Circuit Judge, a seat on the Knox County Board from District five, and several unopposed candidates also spoke last night. Candidates not attending included those for Knox County Circuit Clerk, and several other Knox County Board seats.
