Monroe County Clerk of the Circuit Courts, Linda Robbins, announces re-election bid   Committed to fair and accurate elections, professionally serving the public and courts, and instituting secure records-management systems for the community, Linda Robbins today announced her intention to seek re-election as Clerk of the Courts in Monroe County. Robbins has been a dynamic influence in several innovative projects, using local partnerships to address important public concerns, and ushered in the modernization of elections.

Linda Robbins effectively brought the Clerk’s office into the 21stCentury while taking care to preserve our delicate history and past records for future generations.  Working together with key personnel from local, county, and state government, records in peril have been cleaned, inventoried, and prepared for long-term archives. Additionally, Robbins led efforts in the Justice system to digitize current records for easy, reliable retrieval for the public and for businesses.

Robbins stated, “Public service is at the forefront of my work.  From introducing the ability to make payments by credit/debit cards, to ensuring all employees successfully complete the Indiana Supreme Court’s courses for Court staff, the Clerk’s office enhances employee skills while making the public’s access easier and keeping accountability high.”

Placing the highest priority on services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, Robbins is a principal partner in the Protective-Order-Assistance Partnership, housed in the Clerk’s office.  POAP is now a model program in the State of Indiana; it brings together services for survivors and helps them with options for each difficult situation, all in one location.

Every vote must count, and elections are the primary focus for Robbins.  She led Monroe County as the first county to use the optical scan process, helping to ensure accurate and reliable results. Elections during her term are the first in years to stand without a recount, saving the County thousands of dollars. “As our election processes grow with the times, I will always work to ensure each election is fair, and the results are reliable,” she said. “Our citizens deserve no less.”

Robbins is an active member of the Association of Indiana Counties, the Association of Clerks of the Court of Indiana, Rotary, University Club, and is a current member and past Steering Committee Member of the Democratic Women’s Caucus.
