YOUR VIEW: Fields’ experience sets her apart

GLASGOW — It is interesting, to say the least, when hearing radio and television advertisements, that are in regards to the job performance of Krissie Coe Fields as Circuit Court Clerk, for the past six years.

It is obvious that whoever wrote the script for these advertisements have not done their homework well. They claim that Krissie takes credit for AOC mandates that were passed from Frankfort, but deny her credit for implementing them. They promise to be a full time employee, but didn’t report that Krissie has worked numerous hours beyond full time employment to serve the people of Barren County.

I have worked with all three courts (Circuit, District, and Family) during the time of Krissie’s term in office and have used other services of her office for businesses I have owned. I have always found her staff to be courteous, timely and professional whenever I needed services from them.

I would hate to see on Jan. 1, 2013, that we had voted in a candidate that has less knowledge and experience than anyone in the Office of Barren County Circuit Court Clerk. Then to have them be the supervisor of the office.

As Crit Luellen, past state auditor, stated last summer, “We need to keep people like Krissie in office.”

It is the only way to ensure that we can continue having the quality of services for the next six years.
