Annette Eychner for Sweetwater County Clerk of District Court
I began my career by owning and operating a successful small business in Sweetwater County, after which I went on to serve the public as deputy sheriff at the detention center, advancing to the rank of sergeant. I am currently employed by the State of Wyoming within the offices of the District Court and serve on the Board of Directors for Trona Valley Credit Union.
The demands of this office require a strong and knowledgeable leader. As the District Courts’ recordkeeper, one of the primary functions of this office is to provide administrative and file management support to the Courts as mandated by the Wyoming Statutes. With a solid background in business management, public service and a working knowledge of legal procedures, now is the right time for me to step forward and serve the residents of Sweetwater County.
With the approaching introduction of electronic filing coupled with recent countywide budget cuts and hiring restrictions, I will work alongside staff to achieve a successful yet demanding transition. I possess the ability to quickly adapt and utilize file management systems to their fullest advantage.
My leadership and organizational skills will bring about enhanced changes that will assist our judges and our legal community, ultimately benefiting our citizens.
I made the decision to run for Clerk of District Court based on my powerful desire to serve the residents of this county. Public service, volunteerism and challenging occupations have been instrumental in my life.
I will implement positive changes in the daily operations and will provide staff with the necessary tools and training they need to be successful in their positions and to advance in their careers.
