Letter to the Editor: Kay Robinson is the right choice for Summit County clerk and recorder

Katie Jeter

Many Summit County residents will be heading to the polls next week, and a majority of them can tell you about their positive experiences and interactions with Kay Robinson when they have needed assistance at the Department of Motor Vehicles. I wanted to chime in with a different perspective — someone who has worked with Kay and is keenly aware of the amazing job she would do as the next Summit County clerk and recorder.

I worked at the Breckenridge DMV from 2017 to 2019, and Kay Robinson was the one charged with training me and ensuring I knew the ins and outs of the system, the computer program, the regulations, and —eventually — how to properly run a polling center in the midst of an election. She was also very insistent upon teaching me about a certain level of customer service that was ideal in the office.

I watched local residents come in on a daily basis and willingly stand in line for Kay’s window, even though other clerks were available to help. She was always there to greet people with a smile, she was always there to take the first customer, and she was always there to help the last person in the door. She never complained, and she always aspired to one day be in charge of the operation that she held so dear to her heart.

Summit County residents will greatly benefit from Kay Robinson as clerk and recorder. She will bring change, a fresh perspective, an outstanding attendance record, amazing customer service, and a willingness to do the job. Kay Robinson is the only candidate for clerk and recorder who brings what the residents of Summit County need — and, if I were still working there, I would be proud to work for Kay!
