Douglas County Clerk and Recorder, Sheri Davis, Named to State Leadership Positions
May, 2023 – The ability to help shape policy at the state level to better serve local citizens is a top priority for Douglas County Clerk and Recorder, Sheri Davis.
“I feel like it’s my duty to share efficient and effective local government processes that we’re already using or piloting here in Douglas County with great success for the benefit of other Colorado communities as well,” said Davis.
With this goal in mind, Davis was appointed to the Colorado State Vehicle Services DRIVES Governance Committee in January 2023 for a term of two years. DRIVES is the State of Colorado Motor Vehicle operating system used by all County Clerk and Recorder offices to provide motor vehicle services to citizens. Davis’s responsibilities as a DRIVES Governance Committee Member include the development of operational and budget plans and proposals in collaboration with the Department of Revenue and legislative committees to enhance the state’s motor vehicle infrastructure.
“Our Douglas County Motor Vehicle team uses the DRIVES system every day and is in a unique position to provide critical feedback and opportunities for innovation in the way we deliver motor vehicle services to our community,” says Davis, “It is my responsibility to bring these opportunities for continuous improvement to the stakeholder groups at the state level.”

This wealth of experience in providing critical government services has also led to Davis assuming another state-level leadership position.
In April 2023, Davis was named the Central Region Chair for the Colorado County Clerks Association Executive Committee. The Colorado County Clerks Association (CCCA) is a non-governmental entity and includes in its membership the 64 County Clerks of Colorado and their designees.
