A quick glance at the tributes given for the honorees of the 2021 Municipal Clerks Honor Roll demonstrate that even a global pandemic is no match for these dedicated, hard-working municipal employees.
The 2021 Municipal Clerks Honor Roll saw 185 clerks from DuPont, Washington, to Marshfield, Massachusetts, honored by their peers and grateful communities. Nominations for this annual event, hosted by General Code, were received during Municipal Clerks Week with the results revealed on May 26.
Many of the submitted nominations spoke of unprecedented stresses, from the election to virtual meetings, and finding ways to continue services through the lockdown. Reasons given consistently included mentions of working long and overtime hours, keeping positive attitudes in the most trying times, jumping in to help when no one else could, willingness to go the extra mile, and wearing multiple hats in their communities. Also appearing over and over was a perseverance to continuing educational pursuits to improve skills and knowledge. And experience ranged from being brand new to the position as the pandemic began to serving for over 40 years.
Here’s just a sampling of the praise given to the nominated clerks:
Congratulations to the 2021 honorees and thank you to everyone who took time to make the nominations! All of us at General Code appreciate the opportunity to shine a light on the extraordinary work of these municipal clerks – and public employees everywhere – who are tirelessly committed to the well-being of our communities. Cheers to all!
