Angel Colonneso has a hand in every major milestone in the lives of Manatee County residents.
If you get married, buy a home or suffer a death in the family, Angel is responsible for making sure every event is recorded.
As Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller for Manatee County, Angel and her staff of more than 275 people are responsible for performing nearly 1,000 constitutional and statutory functions, including recording life events, handling public safety issues and overseeing county spending.
“There’s a lot of personal responsibility and accountability that comes with this office, but I really enjoy being clerk,” says Angel. “I absolutely love my job. Not many people can say they’ve worked one job they love let alone two or three.”
