Technology appears to be the key issue in the Republican primary for Lake County clerk of the circuit court. Gerald Dietz, a Round Lake attorney, calls the case management system outdated and -- rightly -- questions why many basic court functions are not currently accessible online. Keith Brin, a Highland Park resident and chief deputy for outgoing clerk Sally Coffelt, acknowledges the need for technological growth but points out that it must be done in a way that is both secure and fiscally responsible. Dietz raises some important issues, including the goal of making a broader range of functions available at the county's branch courts. Still, we believe Brin's experience as the deputy clerk and his realistic approach to moving forward with technological advances make him the stronger candidate. The winner will face Democrat Cynthia Pruim Haran in the November election.
