Landes Letter: January 2020 Edition

The Landes Letter - January 2020 Edition


    Since being sworn in as Augusta County's 17th Clerk of Circuit Court, I have been busy getting to know the staff and inner workings of the Clerk's Office.

    My journey began by being sworn into office by 25th Circuit Chief Judge Chapman Goodwin. Other key highlights include being selected to serve on the Virginia Court Clerk’s Association Legislative Committee and attending the ceremonial swearing in for Delegate Chris Runion.

    The Code of Virginia lists over 800 separate responsibilities for the Clerk, many of which are highly complex and challenging.

    The Clerk serves as the recorder of deeds and probate judge, issues marriage licenses and is the official court administrator for all civil and criminal court cases. In this latter capacity, the Clerk creates and maintains all court files and records, prepares court orders and jury lists, contacts jurors and issues summons and court processes.

    It was an honor to be sworn in by 25th Circuit Chief Judge Chapman Goodwinas the 17th Clerk of Circuit Court for the County of Augusta on November 19th.

    I was proud to attend the ceremonial swearing in for Delegate Chris Runion (R-Bridgewater) my representative in the House of Delegates on Sunday, January 12th with many of his constituents including Angie, my wife, and me.

Association Legislative Committee

    I was recently appointed as one of the 18 members to the Virginia Court Clerk’s Association Legislative Committee. In addition, I was appointed to the Budget and Fiscal Subcommittee of the Committee by the three Legislative Committee Co-Chairs.

    It is an honor to serve as a Member of the Legislative Committee for the Virginia Court Clerk’s Association.

    I look forwarding to utilizing my over 20 years of service in the House of Delegates to assist the Offices of the Clerk of Circuit Court concerning both budgetary and legislative issues during the upcoming 2020 Session of the General Assembly.
