Susan Tierney elected president of Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks
FRANKFORT, Ky., Oct. 24, 2005 ¾ Daviess County Circuit Court Clerk Susan Tierney has been elected by her fellow clerks to serve as president of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks (KACCC). Tierney was elected to the office during the 2005 Circuit Clerks Summer Conference that took place in June at the Louisville Marriott Downtown. During the conference she joined other Kentucky circuit court clerks to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the KACCC.
Her term as the association's president is July 1 to June 30, 2006. Tierney succeeds Christian County Circuit Court Clerk Gary J. Haddock.
"The Office of Circuit Court Clerk has undergone a great deal of change since I first began working with the courts," said Tierney. "We are continually improving our processes and technology to better serve the public. I'm especially excited about Daviess County being one of the first in Kentucky to roll out a pilot e-citation project, which allows law enforcement officers to forward citations to the circuit clerk's office electronically."
Tierney served as a deputy clerk in Daviess County until being appointed chief deputy clerk. She held that position for six years before being appointed circuit court clerk in May 1999 and elected to the office in November 1999. She has been a member of numerous committees within the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks, most recently serving as chair of the Education Committee for the past three years. She has served on the Court of Justice Technology Committee since being appointed by Chief Justice Joseph E. Lambert in 2001 and is a past member of the Court Security Task Force. Tierney is also a member of the Owensboro-Daviess County Chamber of Commerce, the Contact Club and the Rotary Club. She serves on the board of St. Joseph’s Peace Mission for Children and is a past member of Downtown Owensboro. Tierney and her husband, Larry, are the parents of four sons.
Circuit court clerks have offices in all 120 Kentucky counties and are responsible for managing the records of circuit and district courts. The Administrative Office of the Courts supports the activities of more than 3,400 Kentucky Court of Justice employees, including the elected offices of justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
