MELBOURNE, Florida -- Brevard Times was able to obtain a video of the fourth Clerk of Court debate in Melbourne, Florida, between current Brevard County Clerk of Court Mitch Needelman and former Clerk of Court Scott Ellis.
When asked by the moderator, "What are the first three administrative actions you would take if re-elected?" Ellis replied, "First thing we are going to do is eliminate the extra layer of management. Second thing is to use those savings to put people back as regular employees. Third thing is to rescind pay raises that were unlawfully given."
Mitch Needelman defended his outsourcing of employees and changes he made to the Clerk of Court's office by saying, "I don't live in a fantasy world, I live in a business world .... Republican values do more with less."
