At the Country Meadows Justice Court, clerk Matthew's customer service background comes in handy.
“I'm just glad I did a good job," he says with a shy shrug.
It was his assistance that led to his nomination and win of the Justice Courts’ CRAFT Award- our version of an employee of the month. The CRAFT Award recognizes employees who go above and beyond in any of five categories:
A coworker submitted Matthew's name after working extra hard to solve a problem a court customer had with another government agency. He did not give up until it was sorted out.
“I try to use good customer service and do what I can,” he said. “I’m a reflection of the court and the county and we want to put out a good image for everyone.”
Thank you, Matthew, for being outstanding!
It was a streak that nearly broke a record. 2023's eviction filings fell just short of an all-time high from 2005, when we saw 83,687 cases brought to eviction court.
