It is true that there are times it is necessary to clean house, but be careful not to sweep out the good with the undesirable.
Or one might practice the old adage “if it ani’t broke don’t fix it.”
I am referring to the Dayton Town Clerk Judy Suhs.
Judy has been the Dayton town clerk for the better part of 20 years.
She was recruited for the job by the lady who was the town clerk before her. Alice Hanson.
Alice trained Judy in the job and was there for her when needed in the first years.
Judy has a part-time job in the administration area of the Waupaca hospital.
Her hours are very flexible and allow her to be at the town hall whenever needed.
Judy has always been on the job during her posted hours. Every Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
She is also available to those folks who can’t make it during those hours by appointment even on the weekends.
Judy’s administrative job at the hospital has sharpened her skills in dealing with management rules and regulations as well as dealing with the constant change in today’s fast revolving regulatory systems.
Judy has always made the town records available to those requesting to see and study them.
The town clerk’s job is a demanding job that requires ongoing education.
The clerk also takes care of all of the preparations related to the elections held at the town hall.
Hiring and training the staff, getting the town hall set up for the event.
Judy’s 20 years on the job stand her in good stead to keep her on track so that all of the details and needs are covered.
I have been a resident of the town of Dayton for 40 years.
During the 20 years that Judy has been the Dayton town clerk I have found her to be dependable, reliable, well educated in the town laws and ordinances.
Based on these facts I don’t see any reason for Judy to be replaced.
She is already trained and doing a very good job.
The town of Dayton’s clerk job isn’t hurting.
It’s not broken so why replace her with a rookie?
Now you can’t do any better than that now can you?
