The National Association of County Recorders, Election Officials and Clerks named Scott Doyle as the 2005 Public Official of the Year.
Doyle has served in his current position as County Clerk since January 2003. Among the achievements noted in his nomination are development and successful implementation of the Vote Center concept, which is now wining national acclaim; development and implementation of the Citizen Information Center, a one-stop-shop for citizens on the first floor of the county building; and proactive business and budget planning within the Clerk's office. Doyle has been active as the Legislative Co-Chair for the Colorado County Clerks' Association, as a member of the Secretary of State's Blue Ribbon Panel on Election Reform, and as part of the Election Center National Task Force on Election Reform and the National Election Reform Forum.
His peers and staff describe him as one who has a "high level of integrity," "thinks outside the box" and "challenges and empowers [staff]."
This prestigious award is bestowed by the NACRC at their annual conference each year as they seek to "identify individuals who have exemplified leadership, ingenuity, dedication, and excellence in their county position."
