Yolanda Van de Krol, County Clerk of Courts
A native of Massachusetts, with degrees from Hamilton College and the University of Delaware, Yolanda spent 22 years as a bank executive in the Philadelphia region. Her long list of volunteer work includes Board President of Tredyffrin Township Libraries and Assistant Treasurer of West Chester Rotary. She ran successfully for Clerk of Courts in 2017 to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being spent wisely and to streamline services to ensure that the administration of justice is efficient and accurate. As Clerk of Courts, she has implemented e-filing and other technological improvements. Her overall philosophy is that accurate records provide the basis for fair trials for victims and defendants alike.Working with the DA, the President Judge and Juvenile Probation, she is expunging records for non-violent, low-level juvenile offenders who qualify but have neglected to expunge their records before they turned 18; thus “because of our collaboration on juvenile expungements, a mistake will no longer define a person’s life and limit their opportunities.” As a Board member of the Friends Association, Yolanda has been instrumental in setting up Chester County’s Eviction Prevention Court program.
What does the Clerk of Courts do?
An elected row office, the clerk of courts is the clerk of the criminal court and retains custody of all original cases. The office maintains a index and docket in which a record is kept of all documents filed in each case. Court costs and restitution are assessed and collected for each case. These court-related costs are distributed in accordance with the law to the appropriate municipal, county, and state offices and restitution victims. The clerk of courts is responsible for the collection of bail money and its return to the surety upon completion of court action. The clerk of courts maintains miscellaneous records and dockets relating to the division of election districts, the appointment of election officials, constables, and private detectives.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
