I am Rolonda Martin Wedgeworth and I’m announcing my candidacy for Greene County Probate Judge. I’m 43 years old and I was born and raised in Greene County. I am a single parent of three children: Tracy Jr., Devante, and Aikyra Wedgeworth. My parents are Linda and Wilbert Martin of Union, Alabama. I am the oldest of four siblings. I am a 1992 graduate of Eutaw High School.
I am running for this position based on my years of experience. I have given 16 years of dependable, dedicated, and professional service to the Greene County Probate Office. I was hired in 2001 as a Tag Clerk and I have had the opportunity over the years to move up in the office to License Clerk and currently I am the Chief Clerk. My position requires me to supervise and manage all day to day activities. I work extremely close with the Probate Judge on a daily basis and I am her assistant during all elections. For a period of time, I filed Probate Court cases and I have also set up an election.
I handle all checks and balances of accounts, recording of documents, and the reporting of all monies to the State Of Alabama, the Greene County Commission, etc. I also sell Tags, Driver’s Licenses, Conservation Licenses, Boat Licenses, Marriage Licenses, Privilege Licenses, etc. I do minor computer programming and set up so that the office can perform efficiently.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to work part-time in several other offices in the courthouse and I have even worked as a Corrections Officer at the old Greene County Jail.
My mission and overall goal for the Probate Office is to continue to offer and provide more services to our customers and to just improve the overall office experience for every citizen that comes in to do business. The thing that I have enjoyed the most about working in the office is interacting, laughing, and getting to know all the customers. I have gained so many extended family members working in the office. I love helping people and serving the public. I feel that I have gained the trust and respect of the citizens of this county based on my love for people and work ethic. As Probate Judge, I know that I would continue to provide the same dedicated and professional service to the citizens of this county.
