The Landes Letter - January 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 the issuance of my third annual Circuit Court Clerk's Report, a new grant my office received, along with introducing our spring semester intern.

Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk Issues Third Annual Report

   Earlier this month, I issued the third annual Circuit Court Clerk’s Report for activities accomplished by the Augusta County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office in 2022. In addition, to sharing this report with the public, the report will be provided to members of the Augusta County Board of Supervisors, Augusta County representatives in the Virginia General Assembly, and Circuit Court Judges conducting Court in Augusta County.   

   It is a great pleasure to officially issue our third annual Circuit Court Clerk’s Report for 2022 to the citizens of Augusta County. None of what has been achieved this past year would have been possible without the tireless efforts of the staff of the Clerk’s Office, and I want to thank all our dedicated and hardworking staff members who have accomplished so much for our citizens.
