To the editor:My name is Julie Barr. I retired as the Oldham County Clerk on July 31. During my 16 years as county clerk, (27 years total in the Oldham County Clerk's Office), as well as when I was the president of the Kentucky County Clerk's Association, I have cherished and valued my personal and professional relationship with your county clerk, Tina Browning.

I have always admired her calm nature, but she never shied away from taking a stand with lawmakers or folks up the chain at transportation if she felt like polices or laws would adversely affect her citizens. She never one time spoke about Democrats or Republicans, only her citizens. She has done a fabulous job serving all of Trimble County no matter the affiliation and even non-voters.
