Clerks of Superior Court have been elected county constitutional officers since 1798, when framers of Georgia’s constitution created the office and provided for election of a clerk in each county of the state.
The Clerk is accountable only to the people who elect him or her. He or she is not an employee or appointee of any county or state commission or any agent or agency of the judiciary. As an impartial county officer, the Clerk provides some of the most important checks-and-balances needed in both local county government and the state’s judicial system.
The Clerk’s duties include running the business arm of the local court system; accounting for all monies arising from fines, fee, court costs and fees required by law for specific services; service as clerk of the commission responsible for arraying county trial and grand juries; providing oversight and administrative support to the county board of tax equalization; and protecting and permanently maintaining citizens’ court, land and other important vital records.
