Cindy Zika Adams, 53, of Tunkhannock Township, who won the post 4 years ago and succeeded the longtime former Prothonotary, has announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination in the May 16 primary.
The Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts serves as the chief custodian of civil and criminal records of the Court of Common Plea with the overall responsibility of their safekeeping and preservation.
Since her election, Adams has worked to improve the efficiency and operations of the Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts offices. One of her primary goals during her first term was to modernize and update the office. She is proud to say this goal has been accomplished. In April 2021, the criminal electronic filing system was implemented, saving the county thousands of dollars a year. If re-elected, she will continue to work to improve the services of the office for the residents of Wyoming County. “I continue to work to bring the most recent technology to the office and am constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency and ease of the filing process for attorneys and the public. I continue the move of modernization, have been digitizing forms for efficiency and have been working to update the website with forms and documents for the public.”
Adams is a member of the Pennsylvania Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts Association, serving on the Regional Meeting Committee and the Pennsylvania Register of Wills and Clerk of Orphans’ Court Association, in which she serves on the Auditing Committee.
“A lot of great changes have taken place in our office in a short amount of time, all of which have been successful due to my incredible staff. I look forward to being granted another term so I can continue in my efforts to enhance and provide efficient and outstanding service to the public and the courts.”
