Union County CIO Highlights Past Year’s Accomplishments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Union County CIO Highlights Past Year’s Accomplishments

JONESBORO—At a regular meeting of the Union County Board of Commissioners, Union County CIO Rollie Hawk presented a review of the accomplishments of his office over the previous year.

“This isn’t something you’ve required of me but I think it’s important that everyone knows what I’ve been doing for the last twelve months,” said Hawk as he handed copies of his annual report to the Commissioners. “I’m usually caught up in the day’s activities but looking back at the previous year as I was compiling this, I realized this was actually a really exciting year in terms of what we’ve been able to do.”

In particular, Hawk highlighted various collaborations with other County offices, including during the high profile arrest of Dr. Anthony Garcia in July of 2013.

“When we had a very high profile arrest this year, that could have happened anywhere and gone very differently,” explained Hawk. “But from our law enforcement offices to our court system, we were able to show our County in a very professional light. Having someone who could deal directly with the media aspect of this was really the final piece that allowed all of us to show the best of Union County and the benefits of our people and our new facilities.”

Hawk also highlighted the effect of insourcing, whereby his office has been able to absorb activities traditionally handled by outside consultants or other department heads.

“Most of the County’s offices have been able to reduce or eliminate the need for outside consultants in terms of IT and telecommunications. With me filling that role, other officials are able to spend more time focusing on their various areas of experience. The more each of us here are able to focus on our primary roles, the more efficient and more effective we are as officials and as a government. That also means costs savings and a more focused communications plan.”

Hawk closed his presentation by thanking the Commissioners and office holders.

“I thank the Board of Commissioners and the various County offices and officials for the trust they’ve placed in me over the last year and look forward to continued collaboration in the future and—most importantly—the opportunity to provide the residents of Union County with more transparent, more responsive and more responsible government.”
