ELECTION 2012: Greg Tucker, incumbent, Limestone License Commissioner

— Over the years, I have enjoyed listening to stories from county residents about visiting the Limestone County Courthouse around 50 years ago to acquire their car tags for the next year.

They recall seeing their neighbors in November lined outside the courthouse and winding down the hallways inside as they waited to receive their license plates from the probate judge’s office.

How times have changed. Today, a working parent may retire to their favorite chair at home after putting the kids to bed, pick up their iPad or iPhone and renew their tag online with the Limestone County license commissioner’s office.

When I became your first elected license commissioner in 1988, I pledged to provide an office that treats all visitors with kindness and fairness while bringing the conveniences of the latest technology to today’s county licensing office.

It is an honor to serve the families of Limestone County. With your continued support, we will maintain this office with openness and with flexibility to best serve the needs of all our residents.

Leadership and experience are vital to the success of any growing business. The license commissioner’s office is like a business with its own unique inventory control standards on 150 different license plates, various validation decals and specialized software.

Proven leadership skills and proven internal cash controls are a must for any business achieving multimillion dollars in collections, but, most importantly, leadership is more than just wanting to lead. Leaders have a keen ability to see the best in people and truly care for others.

My door, my phone and my inbox are always open and available for your questions or concerns.  I am not perfect, but I know and serve one who is. Each day I humbly seek to become more and more like him in my public life and my personal life.

As your license commissioner, we will be ready for the growth and challenges ahead while staying committed with “down-to-earth” respect and kindness in our tending to all who we serve in this office.
