Rupp: Let me explain the facts and my accomplishments
To the Editor:
When I started work at the DMV in 2003, I never envisioned that I might be running for county clerk years later. My only goals at the time were to do my job well and to serve the DMV customers to the best of my ability.
In 2007, we started the downstate dealer business. I certainly don’t take credit for starting this business nor do I take sole credit for building this business. Through hard work, dedication and attention to the needs of our customers, the dealers, each one of us at the DMV office who dealt with the dealer business helped to build it.
