To the Editor:
My office does business with the Alexandria Clerk of the Circuit Court many times each day, and Edward Semonian, Alexandria’s incumbent Circuit Court Clerk, runs one of the most efficient and professional offices in Virginia. His tenure in office continues to be distinguished by a level of service to members of the public and other user agencies which is exemplary. Among other outstanding features, his office utilizes a case management system which is technologically far superior to the system used by the Supreme Court of Virginia and by most of his colleagues, and which is considered a model for other courts across Virginia.
The leadership and management that Circuit Court Clerk Ed Semonian brings to the table make the Alexandria Circuit Court Clerk’s Office the best there is. His professionalism and personal work ethic are inspirational.
Mr. Semonian has held this position for many years not because of his party affiliation, but because he does an excellent job. His experience, professionalism and use of cutting edge technology have earned him the respect and loyalty of the courts, the bar, his dedicated employees and the citizenry he serves. Alexandria is indeed fortunate to have such a public servant who is ready, willing and able to continue the excellent level of service for which he is so well known.
I am pleased to support his bid to seek another term.
