Tim Rhode's Accomplishments Laughable

Comment found on the OKC Talk Forum regarding Tim Rhodes and the Oklahoma County Clerk race:

"As a practicing attorney in Oklahoma County for over 15 years, I'm very familiar with the job done by the current Court Clerk and Deputy Court Clerk. 15 years of a bad experience is long enough!! Rhodes has basically been running the office for the last several years and has, in my opinion, only served to decrease customer service and decrease efficiency........

I have seen some of the emails sent out by Rhodes boasting of his "accomplishments" as Deputy Court Clerk and find the same laughable at best....His "accomplishments" are nothing more than taking credit for the hard work of others when he had merely an advisory role at best in relation to those "accomplishments....

Rhodes claimed "accomplishments" are things such as: Generating $70 million in new revenue while reducing the Court Clerk's operating budget. While Rhodes my have played a part in reducing the operating budget, he has no power or authority to "generate . . . new revenue" other than if he illegally made up new charges and fees, which Midtowner alludes to in his statement that Rhodes treats different motions the same. Rhodes also claims responsibility for: "Helping Tinker stay open - assuring the old GM plan was used by Tinker for mission expansion," and "Supporting the Easter Oklahoma County Turnpike gate to improve economic development." These are things upon which the Court Clerk, much lest the Deputy Court Clerk has absolutely no power or authority...

While I find that the individuals who work at the Court Clerk's office are genuinely helpful and want to provide good customer service, the current regime does not engender, nor foster, that same desire. It's time for real and positive change. " - - tdbcrb99
