From the Paper:

"The second interview in this study was conducted with an official within a county system and specifically with an individual who is responsible for public administration of the license and tag division at a county courthouse. This individual has an open and friendly tag and licenses division office in the courthouse and was obviously present and available as this writer arrived for the interview. Her office could be seen from the front counter and this added to her congenial attitude and demeanor reflected transparency in public administration and availability of those elected for administration of this duty such as the individual in this interview. When asked what difficulties she had faced in her role of public administration the answer stated was that when she was first elected there were many people who failed to have licenses and tags renewed and who were given citations because they stated that with their work schedule that they were unable to travel to the courthouse in that county as it was not centrally located but located on the edge of the county and nearly an hour away for many residents."
