Letter to the editor: Vernon County Clerk Ron Hoff to retire in January 2020, fully supports Jody Audetat for county clerk

By RON HOFF | Vernon County Clerk

I have been humbled to serve Vernon County as the county clerk over the last 18 years and have enjoyed coming to work each and every day and having the opportunity to serve the Vernon County citizens, employees, and the Vernon County Board of Supervisors.

However, I feel the time has come to retire. Words can’t explain how much I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know so many Vernon County citizens. As you know, elections are a crucial duty of the county clerk’s office, and I would like to thank the 33 municipal clerks I have personally worked with through the years, going back to 2006, starting with our first voting machines! I am excited to report that we have now ordered new machines for 2021 to better serve today’s ever-changing election procedures. With all of the changes, the past elections have become very time consuming and trying at times, and our municipal clerks have risen to the occasion every time.

While it is indeed bittersweet to retire, I feel the office will be in good hands for the future. I ask that you join with me in fully supporting Jody Audetat as county clerk. For those of you who know Jody, can attest that she is a friendly, dedicated, articulate and knowledgeable individual. Jody has worked in the Vernon County Clerk’s office for eight years, working in every position within the office. Most recently, she served as the payroll administrator, handling the county’s payroll, which at times is over 500 bi-weekly checks. Many times, Jody is working extra Saturdays to meet deadlines for payroll and has never once complained — she is a true team player. Recently, Jody was promoted to deputy county clerk/accountant for the county clerk’s office. I am positive Jody’s dedication and knowledge will keep the office the running smoothly and friendly service will continue to be a priority. Please join my support of Jody and vote Jody Audetat for county clerk on Nov. 3, 2020.

    As someone that was fortunate to be able to serve the 96th Assembly District, which includes Monroe, Vernon, and Crawford counties, for fourteen years and seven legislative terms, I’ve met and worked with quite a few legislators and elected officials at the local, state and federal level.
