Dear Graham County Citizens,

In 1998, I was appointed to serve as your Graham County Recorder. Since then, I have enjoyed this journey for the past 24 years and appreciate the confidence and support of the registered voters by continuing to elect me as your Recorder. You gave me a rare and special opportunity to have a job I thoroughly enjoyed and loved.

I want to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all members of my staff, current and past, and the Graham County Board of Supervisors for providing me with the necessary budgets to operate my department. Also, the other elected officials, department heads, and employees of the county were always willing to help our office, often volunteering during critical times in the election process. Through these combined efforts, many customers have expressed that the Recorder’s Office is a model for outstanding customer service.  Looking towards the future, I believe the Recorder’s Office is in good hands and will continue to provide exceptional service to our county.

Thank you for allowing me the honor and privilege to hold the office of Graham County Recorder for all these years. 


Wendy John
