Loudoun Circuit Court Clerk Announces Changes to Management Team

Gary M. Clemens, clerk of the circuit court, has announced some recent changes to his  management team.  Several deputy clerks were recently promoted to management-level  positions.

Kimberly Walker was promoted to the position of manager of the civil case management division.  The civil case management division is responsible for the receipt of new  lawsuits, issuance of subpoenas, the retention of civil court files, filing of all legal pleadings,  assisting the public with requests related to civil cases and many other responsibilities.   Walker has worked in the clerk’s office for the past six years starting in the file room as a team  leader and most recently as the criminal division manager.  This position is very challenging as  the volume of civil court cases has increased by 18% in the past year.

In this regard, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s recent fall from grace should serve as an object lesson for anyone who has a job...and especially for anyone who is seeking a job.
