Clerk-Recorder Named One of 2015’s 100 Most Influential in Orange County
Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen was named one of Orange County’s 100 Most Influential by the Orange County Register. He has influenced the way county government operates by opening his offices to the public one Saturday per month, making his department’s services more accessible to working families.
The annual 100 Most Influential list is released by The Orange County Register and highlights individuals who have changed people’s lives or their community. The list includes individuals who have influenced business, culture, education, food, giving, government, health, inspiration, science and sports.
Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen was caught off guard by his placement on the list.
“I am honored and humbled by this achievement,” said Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen. “This is just another example of the great opportunities this country offers those who come here and work hard. I hope this inspires others to dream big, work hard and stay humble.”
The Clerk-Recorder Department has received two awards for its special Saturday office hours, which Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen implemented when he became the county clerk-recorder. He believes that government services should be easily accessible to all. The Saturday office hours are his way of helping working families, individuals and students have access to services that were formerly available only during normal business hours. The program has been in place for over two years and has become very popular.
Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen came to this country as a refugee in 1975 and is the first Vietnamese-American to be elected to the Office of Clerk-Recorder in all of the United States. He won his election in 2014 despite a crowded field of candidates.
