Dade County Superior Court Clerk Kathy Page was recently elected chairperson of the District 7 Superior Court Clerks’ Association and installed as a member of the Superior Court Clerks’ Association of Georgia’s board of directors.
Page, who took office as Dade County’s Clerk of the Superior Court on January 1, 2005, was elected by the thirteen superior court clerks of the District 7 Superior Court Clerks’ Association. The membership of the association is also comprised of the superior court clerks of the counties of Walker, Catoosa, Cobb, Whitfield, Murray, Douglas, Chattooga, Gordon, Floyd, Bartow, Polk, Paulding and Haralson, each elected by the citizens of their respective counties.

The local court clerk was installed as a member of the Superior Court Clerks’ Association of Georgia during the organization’s annual business meeting held on St. Simons Island on April 19th. “I am honored that clerks of the superior courts of our district organization selected me as chairperson; however, it was with great trepidation that I consented to service in this venerated position. The demands of my job as clerk of Superior and Juvenile Courts and responsibilities at home – to my family, church, and community – take priority; however, my involvement with the Clerks’ Association affords me an opportunity to be a part of the leadership of an organization that is dedicated to the same goals that I am committed to as clerk of the Superior Court of Dade County, enables me to contribute to the many projects with which the association is involved, and ultimately benefits those I serve, the citizens of Dade County,” Page said.

During the installation ceremony, Beverly Logan, president of the Georgia Superior Court Clerk’s Association and Clerk of The Superior Court of Clarke County, told clerks of superior court, “We are blessed to have people like Kathy Page serving on the (association’s) board of directors. She is the kind of person that works hard and is committed to doing the best job possible whenever she is called upon to serve. With all the projects that clerks of superior court have been entrusted with during recent years that benefit the citizens of Georgia, we desperately need her leadership, vision, and dedication to our goals.

Logan pointed out that the Superior Court Clerks’ Association has collaborated during the past decade with the Council of Superior Court Clerks of Georgia, the official state agency for superior court clerks, the Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority, the entity responsible for the implementation and operation of statewide real estate and personal property information systems, state lawmakers, the State Bar of Georgia, state realtors’ associations, and various state and federal agency to create and implement statewide electronic, computer-based systems for collecting and disseminating invaluable court and real estate and personal property information.

“There are many ongoing projects that our association has taken the lead on that benefit the citizens of Georgia. Our state authority, the Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority, has been selected by legislators to collect monies derived from surcharges on fines and court fees for funding the newly created statewide indigent defense system, to operate the nation’s only statewide Uniform Commercial Code, real estate and personal property, notary public, and civil and criminal case information systems. Being a part of the process is, I believe, beneficial to this office and Dade County,” Page explained.

Kathy is married to Timothy Page and the mother of 3 children Josh Daniel, Heather Daniel and Ashley Page. She is the proud grandmother of Troy and Tre’. Kathy is an active member of Piney Grove Baptist Church, the Piney Grove Hand Bell Choir, and a member of the Trenton-Dade Optimist Club and the creator of the Passport to Learning Scholarship to be presented to a graduating Dade County senior who plans to study some aspect of the judicial system.
