Main issues: Parker wants to “assure a sustainable process” in the clerk’s office through improving the process, software, training and customer fulfillment.
“The clerks cannot provide legal advice to the public; however, we are able to provide seminars by qualified individuals to explain procedures and guide a person into making qualified choices to a qualified lawyer of legal service,” Parker said. “With the recent onset of the moral turpitude clause set out by the Alabama governor, which may allow those that were once unable to vote to now vote, it is my desire to aggressively seek out those that may now be able to vote and to assist in them being a more stable contributor to our local community.
