From the Desk of Judge Ryder…

Just a word to say we have a person retiring from our County on December 31, 2016, who has done an outstanding job for this County and will truly be missed. Jim Witt has run a very efficient and effective County Attorney office and has been attentive to the needs of the Commissioners and the entire County offices. It is most important that our County stay at 90% or higher in dispositionof court cases with the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) which has been accomplished during Mr. Witt’s tenure. This means that this state requirement must be continuously met or our County could lose state funding and even grant monies. The County Clerk, District Clerk, District Attorney and County Attorney have all done a great job staying in compliance with this requirement so we would not lose any funding that is much needed to be able to operate a successful court system.We wish Jim a great retirement and hope that he will enjoy his free time.

As one chapter in Leon County’s history closes, a new chapter begins with a new County Attorney taking office on January 1, 2017. I look forward to the opportunity of working with him in conducting County business and continuing the effective work that the County has enjoyed the past few years.
