Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” Why do we keep electing career politicians to a job that requires expertise, experience and detail? Tina Barton has been Clerk for the City of Rochester Hills for 7 and a half years. She knows the job, and has become the 'GO TO' source for other Clerks around the State! She has the expertise, experience and is detail-oriented enough to do the job well.
For Tina, this is a natural progression. Think of it as a well-deserved promotion. She's earned the right do this job. But for politicians, they run for this job because it's ANOTHER elected position; another chance to get their name on the wall – or a yardsign. We wouldn't ask a surgeon to fix our car or a mechanic to perform brain surgery so why do we keep electing career politicians to jobs that require expertise?
This November, we NEED Tina Barton for Oakland County Clerk.
