Amy Gwinnup

Lifelong Colusa County resident, Amy Rennick-Gwinnup began her career with the Colusa County Clerk & Recorders Office in 2000 as a Deputy Clerk to the Board of Supervisors Office.

“During that time I worked directly under the Colusa County Clerk,” said Gwinnup, “there I gained the knowledge of records management, processes of county government, and became skilled in working elections.”

In addition to the skills and knowledge she gained as a Deputy Clerk, Gwinnup has gained valuable resources from her independent business she has successfully owned over the last seven years.

“Working in business has taught me strong budgeting, planning, supervisory, and leadership skills, all of which I believe is an asset to me as County Clerk.” said Gwinnup.

Gwinnup currently works with the Colusa County Public Works Department.

Hoping to expand usability within the department, Gwinnup will give the department a positive outlook with fresh eyes.

“I would like to expand the web services of the department,” said Gwinnup, “much of the technology is already in place, we just have to make it work.”

Gwinnup would like to see the Clerk and Recorder Office start accepting Credit Card Payments, the Real Property Index available on-line, and the ability to order birth and death certificates on-line.

“Many of the items that I would like to have done, can be implemented with little resources.” said Gwinnup.

Looking forward, as Colusa County Clerk & Recorder, Gwinnup will put customer service at her top priority, bringing her business experience to the forefront taking the Clerk and Recorders Office into the future.

“I personally believe that the public should always feel we are here to help in whatever way possible,” said Gwinnup, “In my business I strive for my clients to be happy, to keep them coming back – this will be the same goal I will have for this office.”

“I have always wanted to serve the public,” said Gwinnup, “I will strive to meet the needs of the public through outreach program, office leadership, and teamwork department collaboration.”
