Pollock receives the county clerk, recorder award of year for Zone III

Douglas County Clerk & Recorder Judi Pollock has been awarded the 2017 Clerk & Recorder of the Year in Zone III voted on by her peers.

“This prestige honor signifies Judi’s dedication, time, true passion and outstanding service as our Douglas County Clerk & Recorder,” says a press release compiled by her deputy clerks.

Pollock is a member a of the Newman American Legion Auxiliary, Neman United Methodist Church and a participant in a variety of community events including the 5K Walk for Juvenile Diabetes, Casino Night to Benefit Newman American Legion, Poker Run to Benefit Military, Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Douglas County Courthouse, and Douglas County Relay For Life among others. She also serves on the IACCR Legislative Committee and SBE Advisory Committee.

Pollock is a lifelong resident of Newman. She and her husband built and managed their convenience store, J & T’s One Stop, for 24 years prior to selling it in 2011. They are current owners of a storage facility, J & T’s One Storage and a fitness center, J & T’s One Fit.

Judi was elected as City Clerk for Newman in 1989 and served in that position for 20 years before running for a four-year term for Mayor of Newman, which she was elected to in 2009. Pollock resigned her position as mayor in December of 2012 prior to taking office as Douglas County Clerk & Recorder Jan. 1, 2013. Pollock is seeking re-election in 2018.

Judi has been married to Tony Pollock or nearly 40 years and they have three adult children: Jerad (Randi), Amanda, and Jordan (Ashley) and eight grandchildren.

“Pollock’s biggest accomplishment and most humbling moment would be when the Douglas County Board gave her their vote of confidence and appointed her to fulfill the position of the Douglas County Clerk & Recorder,” the press release says. “Because of their trust she has been afforded the opportunity to continue to work in an office that she truly loves and serves the people of Douglas County to the best of her ability.”

During the Wednesday, Sept. 20 Douglas County Board meeting, chairman Don Munson recognized Pollock’s award.

“I know personally that were it not for our county clerk we’d be lost, we’d be up a serious tree,” Munson said. “There are so many times that she bails us out and finds things out and at the same time keeps her office running very smoothly. I think this is well deserved.”
