  • Victor Court Clerk, Terri Bolt, is somewhat of a celebrity these days. On October 12 she was named "Clerk of the Year" by the New York State Association of Magistrates Court Clerks.  A very prestigious and extraordinary statewide honor, this award recognizes Bolt’s outstanding performance and service to the Victor Town Court and to the town. 
    Out of a possible 2000 court clerks statewide, only 11 were nominated by their  peers, fellow court clerks, attorneys and agencies to become “Clerk of the Year.”
    “I was beyond surprised,” said Bolt. “I was very surprised and humbled by it. I just figured, ‘I’m doing my job.’”
    Bolt also serves on the Unified Court Systems staff and frequently teaches classes at various locations around the state for court clerks and some judges.
    “Victor Town Court is probably one of the busiest courts in the state,” remarked Bolt. “We’re number 44 out of 1800. We are probably busier than most courts, and work with about half the staff. We work very well together, and we have streamlined our process so that we can keep up with the work load.”
    After 21 years of service she ought to know the job. Victor Town Justice Reid Holter can attest to that.
    “We are all very proud of Terri and wholeheartedly support her receip
    t of this award,” said Holter. “Terri does an extraordinary job and it is always a pleasure to work with her.”
    It seems that the feeling is mutual.
    “He is a phenomenal judge and just a pleasure to work with,” said a grateful Bolt. “You have to have that type of rapport and relationship with your judge, it just makes your job that much easier.”
    Bolt comes from a family of public servants, so recognition of this kind should come as no surprise.  Her mother, Diane Paige is a retired employee of the town after serving 30 years  as Deputy Town Clerk. Bolt’s sister, Sandee Cody, has been a permanent part time employee responsible for records management and 911 numbering for the last 25 years. Her brother, Troy Paige, is the Town of Victor’s Highway Superintendent. Her uncle, Ron Rader, was also Highway Superintendent. Bolt’s brother-in-law, Jeff Cody, serves on the Town Board, and her dad, Ken Paige, was a part time wing man on the snow plow trucks.
    “It’s amazing,” said her sister, Sandee. “Of course she’s very dedicated and very good at what she does. And she loves it too. That’s very hard for people to find something they really love to do. But she found it! She knows her stuff.”
