The Clerk of Superior Court is the “primary record keeper” of all of the official records of the County’s Superior Court, which provides protection of the public records including all real estate deeds, liens, and records along with all pleadings of civil and criminal cases. The Clerk of Superior Court is one of four constitutional officers in Chatham County. As “primary record keeper” this is a vital position to the efficiency of the Superior Courts of the County and the clerk’s designated duties if done correctly ensure that the court system flows properly.
As Clerk of Superior Court, Mosley will ensure the continued security, maintenance, and retention of all of the real estate and case records in Superior Court. Mosley will work to address the present day and future needs of customers of the Clerk’s Office in carrying out the duties of Clerk.
The duties and services provided by the Clerk’s Office are ever changing and expanding with the needs of our society and community. Mosley has a commitment to embrace technology as it applies to the duties carried out by the Clerk’s Office especially record retention and security. The Clerk’s Office is responsible for keeping all property records and recording all liens within the County. Additionally, the Clerk’s Office is responsible for securing and maintaining all court filings in Civil, Domestic, Family Violence, Adoption, Garnishment, and Criminal cases. From the initiation of a case to the disposition and closing, the Clerk’s Office must make sure the records are securely maintained and preserved. Mosley will ensure continued and non-complicated access to the records and information kept and preserved by the Clerk’s Office. Mosley volunteers with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and is a Trustee with the Telfair Museums. She has served on other community boards and committees such as CASA, Senior Citizens, Inc., Savannah Technical College Community Council, Georgia Historical Society Georgia Days Committee, Georgia Historical Society Gala, Dawn’s Daughter, and educational committees with Savannah Country Day School.
