Avent Lane, a lifelong resident of Rutherford County is seeking to serve Rutherford County as the next Circuit Court Clerk.
“I realize that most people do not realize what the Circuit Court Clerk office does and how it touches the lives of our county citizens” Lane explained.
The Circuit Court Clerk in 2013 managed a staff of 37, which processed over 48,135 cases and oversaw a budget of almost $1.2 million.
“It is an important part of the overall court system that needs a mature, sensible, experienced leader in place”. Lane commented. “I am dedicated to serving all the citizens with a fair and unbiased process providing best practices and the highest quality level of performance. I intend to ensure that the technology utilized by the Circuit Court Clerk is reviewed and updated regularly to provide the control needed to manage the large volume of records and data needed to support the Civil and Criminal Court system of Rutherford County.”
Responsibilities include all filings, processing and final disposition of cases, which includes several phases of the Civil and Criminal law procedures in the Juvenile, General Sessions Court (Civil & Criminal), Circuit Court (Civil & Criminal). The clerk also hires and manages Chief Deputies and several deputy clerks for the courts who perform all clerical functions of each court.
Lane possesses the skills needed to be an effective Circuit Court Clerk. Based on his many years of experience, he is the most qualified candidate for the job. He has served in many leadership roles and he will bring to the position many years of related experience; he has served in the U.S. Navy, as a past sergeant with the sheriff’s department, elder at First Presbyterian Church and past chair of the property committee, a 25-plus year volunteer with Uncle Dave Macon Days, including many years serving on the board and as chairman of judges.
