State Rep. Ann Bollin this week recognized a group of vital public servants by sponsoring a resolution to declare April 30 through May 6 as Professional Municipal Clerks Week in the state of Michigan.
Throughout Michigan, municipal clerks serve their communities as election administrators, parliamentarians, record keepers, FOIA coordinators, public meeting organizers, and more.
“Every day, clerks are called upon to serve in an incredibly diverse role and offer guidance with a neutral and impartial approach,” said Bollin, of Brighton Township. “Clerks wear many hats, and always come equipped with the highest levels of integrity and great resiliency – ready and willing to get the job done.”
Bollin, who served for 16 years at the Brighton Township clerk, said the Office of the Municipal Clerk is the longest serving profession among public servants, dating back to ancient times when clerks were called upon to record meetings by memory.
