She has worked as a title examiner for the past eight years.
“My job requires me to visit the clerk’s office on a daily basis,” Maples said. “Upon my visits I have seen many things I feel could be improved.”
Prior to her current job, Maples worked in the Walker County planning and enforcement department for a year. She also spent 10 years working in the Walker County assessor’s office.
“I bring the experience and qualifications needed to make a difference,” Maples said. “I will work with the attorneys, the abstractors, the surveyors, the judges and the other government offices, but first and foremost the people to make the clerk’s office more efficient, convenient and user-friendly and the changes I make will only be for the better.”
Maples is a graduate of the Carl Vinson Institute for Government at The University of Georgia and a 1985 graduate of LaFayette High School.
“I want to make it more convenient to file or retrieve documents that are public record,” Maples said. “I feel the current process has made it difficult and time-consuming for attorneys and others that have busy schedules, when it should be a simple process with little difficulty.
She plans to keep all divisions (records, criminal, civil) open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., even during court session.
“I have the experience and knowledge of how the office should operate,” Maples said. “I want this office convenient and user-friendly for the people.”
Maples has lived in the LaFayette community for 34 years.
She has been a member of Corinth Baptist Church since 1978.
