New Leadership Selected to Lead Florida Clerks and Comptrollers
The Honorable John Crawford, Nassau County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, was elected President of the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers (FCCC) Board of Directors this week during the organization’s annual summer conference in Orlando.
With more than 400 FCCC members in attendance, including leadership and staff from Florida Clerk of Courts and Comptrollers offices statewide, Crawford was installed into office by longtime friend and colleague, the Honorable Robert M. Foster, Administrative Judge of the Fourth Judicial Circuit.
“The roles and responsibilities of Court Clerks and Comptrollers in each of Florida’s 67 counties are vast and far reaching, but our most important job and highest priority is to be the keepers, protectors and preservers of public trust,” stated Clerk Crawford. “It is my great privilege to serve the FCCC membership as President and I look forward to building upon our successes while also finding viable solutions to the critical issues we face both independently and collectively.”
Clerk Crawford has served three terms as the Nassau County Clerk of Court and Comptroller since first being elected in 2005. Prior to his current role, Crawford served two terms on the Nassau County Commission, during which time he received a gubernatorial appointment to the Commission on Local Government by Governor Lawton Chiles. He was also the District Representative to Congressman Ander Crenshaw and owned Crawford Financial Group.
Additional members voted to serve on the 2016-17 FCCC Executive Board of Directors included Franklin County Clerk Marcia Johnson, First Vice President, Palm Beach County Clerk Sharon Bock, Second Vice President, Polk County Clerk Stacy Butterfield, Treasurer, and Clay County Clerk Tara Green, Secretary.
