Letter: A privilege to serve as town clerk

To the Editor:

For six years I have been the town clerk of Trumbull. It has been a distinct privilege to represent you in that office for three terms, bringing in new ideas and technology, serving the public as needed, resurrecting the Town Clerk’s Monthly Newsletter, and keeping our recorded documents, vital records, minutes and agendas up-to-date and in place. Many of the goals in our office deal with record management — attempting to reclaim space, making better use of the area provided to us. We endeavor to accomplish this formidable task.

I am proud to hold the Certified Municipal Clerk’s as well as the Certified Connecticut Town Clerk’s designations. Asked to serve as the vice chairman of the CTCA Education Committee, I am pleased to use my background from thirty-five years in education, and my three degrees to aid in the professional development opportunities for clerks. I will also serve as the chairman of the Education Committee for the New England Municipal Clerks conference in 2017, and as a member of the IIMC host committee for 2015.

It has been a pleasure to serve with Tim Herbst and his team to bring innovation and cutting edge ideas to our town. As a former teacher, I am especially proud of his accomplishment to have full-day kindergarten in our schools — all this while keeping his promise to make tax increases ‘predictable’ and below inflation. Our entire team needs your support on Nov. 5.
