The Landes Letter - August 2023 Edition


   I hope this email finds everyone doing well and staying safe. My focus this month is to provide updates from the Clerk's Office including my Re-Election Bid, staff news, and our search for Fall 2023 interns.

   I have also included the latest photos from the Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour. Please enjoy the latest photos.

My Re-Election Bid

   I am grateful and honored to have the confidence of the people of Augusta County. I look forward to continuing to campaign for re-election as Clerk of Circuit Court and to continue to discuss the new goals we hope to accomplish for the citizens in the Clerk’s Office.
