I am a longtime south county business owner

I am a longtime south county business owner who understands why it is necessary to closely monitor employee performance. I am thankful that County Clerk-Recorder Lorraine Jewett-Burdick has the courage to make tough decisions and weed out incompetent employees. We need more managers like Lorraine in Nevada County government.

A bad employee costs taxpayers much more in the long run than hiring and training new employees who can work efficiently. Lorraine’s current staff are hard-working, professional, and courteous – a direct result of the changes Lorraine has made in the Clerk-Recorder’s Office.
