Wendy Mickel appointed as interim Town Clerk
By Chris Kopacko, Contributing Writer
Mickel – who has served as the Assistant Town Clerk for 18 years – will replace longtime Town Clerk Nancy Yendriga, who has served Westborough at her position for the same time span. Yendriga hired Mickel 18 years ago and they have been working together in the Town Clerk’s office ever since.
Yendriga announced her retirement last month and will be leaving at the end of this year, leaving Mickel’s interim position to run from Jan. 1, 2014 until the annual Town Election on March 4, where she has already pulled nomination papers to seek election for the position, which hold a three-year term.
“I like the job,” Mickel told selectmen. “The town means a lot to me, and I’d like to stay and continue as Town Clerk.”
Selectmen thanked her for her willingness to step up and continue to serve in Westborough, as no other applicants have filed papers to run for the position. Those wishing to run for any open seats on the March 4 town election must submit their papers with 50 signatures of registered voters by Jan. 14.
